Default PLUG WIRES, WHAT SHOULD i GET

I just got some AC Delco rapidfire plugs, and am searching for wires. I was wondering what you people thought about brands. I was about to order Taylor'*, but went to Advanced Auto, and a guy recommended Accel or Holley (that'* all they had). Are these as good as Taylor? Should I pick up their best wires or wait and order Taylor'* online? Thanks for the help.

He was trying to sell you Accel and Holley only because that'* what he had. The Taylors seem to be the favorite in the GP 3800 community, and I'll vouch for them personally. Hector has the best price I've seen on them web-wise. I know 95BonnevilleSESC is running them, and a couple others. Great wires. Jr'* Bosch wires are falling apart prematurely.

A couple guys are running MSD, too. I know Allmachtige is one, and he likes his, too. They're very similar to the Taylors.

Taylor or MSD are the best for 3800'*.

MSD is the cream of the crop, but I'm sure some of the money you pay goes towards the name. Taylor are just as good from what I'm told and you can get them in colors other than red. But red is fast so I don't know why you would want some ugly color like green.

HAHA, I mean go fig! GREEN?!! Man that color is so NASTY!

Taylors are great. Get them from Hector, in the color of your choice. I got mine from the GPStore and all they offered were Red and Blue. You know that I avoided the red ones--didn't want to slow my car down. If I had it to do over again, I would purchase the same wires from ADTR in a nice fast yellow to compliment my Green/Ghetto Gold scheme.

when you do put the new wires on, make sure you protect the boots from the exhaust manifolds. stock , they have a metal shield on them. when i did my MSD wires, i got a set of DEI fiberglass heat boots, they fit great and are 8" long. taylor also makes these boot protectors in different colors too. also make sure that you put dielectric gel in the ends of all the wire ends, this keeps moisture out and keeps your end terminals like new

After a good amount of research I decided on the MSD' racing wires.

The reason mostly is because of the optional MSD full package. Wires ,coil,ignition etc.
personaly i beleve running parts (electrical) that are made by the same manufactur is a smart way to keep consisticy in aftermarket products.
they are made to work together more efectivly.
