These will work even though they say they're for a Series II (difference is these ones are a little longer)

Check this out.

Jegs.
http://www.jegs.com//cgi-bin/ncommer...19&prmenbr=361
MSD
http://www.msdignition.com/wire_sets.htm#pontiac
PPF
http://www.bonnevilleattitude.com/st...roducts_id=217

If you look at the lengths between PPF and MSD they are the same.
Then if you check the part numbers between Jegs and MSD they are the same.
MSD is 32789 and the Jegs is 121-3278-9, the last 5 digits are the same.
What a deal $54.99. They also have free UPS ground shipping.

If you want decent wires that is what you are gonna have to pay. Everyone charges approx. $75 US for them, that is what you have to pay for them, you're not gonna get them cheaper. You could get the really expensive PRJ Performance 10.4mm wires, but those are like $130 US.

I got got a set of universal MSD wires from summit racing. $73 with free shipping. I cut to fit and haven't had a problem. Its actually really easy to do and even comes with a tool that makes it idiot proof.

As Ty & I have mentioned numerous times before....Jeg'* & Summit'* pricing on MSD items are second to none due to they buy MSD by the "truckload" and therefore get these items way cheaper than any other store can get them for! As for my own price, well up here I have to pay Duty Charges to bring them up from the USA too, hence the price of the product has to reflect this price too, sorry. Gotta love the Canadian Gov. to get their fingers in everybodies "pie" & wallets!

From what I've heard, any wire over 8.5mm doesn't make a difference? Is this true? I got a kick looking at the APC 11mm wires at checker.

Also, the GP GTP MSD wires will work on a series 1 n/a?? Only this is they will be longer??


Thanks
