Thought I would pass on something that I feel improves the performance
of our cars.
I have used Mallory Pro-sidewinder wires on many of my performance
engines. I have used them with great results on Turbo Saabs, Turbo Volvo'*,
and many small and big block Chevy'* and Fords. Well even though I have
brand new AC Delco'* on my 97 SSEI, I thought hmmmm... wonder what
my Bonnie would run like with them ?
So, I went to a supplier I use on E-bay and ordered up a set of # 937
Mallory red Pro-sidewinder wires for Chevy 8mm big -block w/HEI male
towers. These wires are sold for $29.95 w/ $7.00 shipping. This price
is 60% of what you would pay at Summit or a speed shop.
When I received my wires, I took out and used the (3) longest, and the (3)
shortest wires. They fit like they were made for the 3800. These wires
feature less than 300 ohms p/ft and are heat resistant to 500 degrees.
Now I'm not one to claim that sparkplug wires will give any appreciable
gains if you are already in a good state of tune. BUT, in this case, the
wires made a difference, and it was noticable. I not only felt a difference
in the butt dyno, but also the way the car boosts.
As I said earlier in my post, I have used these many, many times with great
results. Only this time i used them on the my 3800 and they work well !
For $37.00 bucks, next time you need to get wired, give them a try.
