Maybe try some Autolite 24's. They are doing well in my 358 SBC.

plug wires with headers I'd get the DIE heat shelds(summit racing)
ton of nkg plugs are rumored to be the same lenth as the accell shroties(have not seen this myself) just gonig off what others have said..

wires look at what summit/jegs/etc has..
most parts stores wires are JUNK.. and like advanced autoparts the "better" wires (autolight) are nothing to write home about either...
moroso makes good wires, I have accell for my truck some don't like the bright yellow color..,
if you want a clean install the custom cut sets are the way to go.. it is very easy to cut and install the boot and ends.... if you can crip a spade connector. you can cut and crimp on the wire ends..
