Default Suggestions for new Wires and Coils

I'm thinking about getting new wires and coils for my 91.
I'd like to go w/ a red paint scheme on things....

I'm thinking Blaster GM Coil, PN 8226 (x3)

Would I need the (PN 8876) Harness?

What would you guys suggest for wires?
What type exactly do I need?

EDIT

Is ACCELL a good name for wires?

that'* not DIS, which is what we have. Personally [since i'm going this way] i'd go with picking up a 92 1/2+ type II [delco style] ICM, and some Accel, MSD, or Jeg'* DIS coils [you'll need three] I just got my accel coils today! although my ICM isn't comming until thursday/friday. As far as wires go, the belden [in the performance section here at BC], seem like the best ones.. you can figure out the plugs for your specific application [mods and shiznit]

8224 are the coils we need. You'll have to upgrade to the Delco Type 2 ICM first.

Could I go w/ a MSD ICM for my 91?

8224 you say... hrm... wonder why they told me 8226.
With 8224 would I still need a harness?

there is an adaptor which you can use [MSD manufactures it] but I wouldn't go that route unless you were going to use their DIS-4 ignition box [which unless you are going for serious racing and such, you won't need that] otherwise it will be cheaper, and much easier just to go for a Type II [delco style] ICM.

To changeover, best get the first from a recycling center and be sure to get a complete assembly. The backing plate and screws are different from a Magnavox but it bolts onto the same bracket. See http://6007.us/coils.htm for more than you ever wanted to know.
