Default Throttle studdering (bad wires?)

I remember TaylorD saying awhile back that he had an issue where under a constant normal acceleration (nothing aggressive) he would get a studdering in the pedal as if the engine missed a beat. I'm not sure if he replaced the wires, plugs, or both, but I remember people not liking the Taylor wires. I currently have a set of those massive 10.5mm Taylor 409 wires and was curious if that might be the issue? I know many of you recommend a cheap simple brand from NAPA but I forgot the name...Belkin maybe?

Just throw a little insight my way, thanks.

Well....I'm sure you know about Taylor wires.......Not the most reliable wires in our application......I think I would start by getting the Multimeter out and checkin the resistance on the wires.

Noooooooooooooo. Did you see my wires at the MN meet? They have wire clamps that you screw together with a wrench....

Bah I guess I will. What resistances am I looking for?

The name you're looking for is Belden. They're a little over $30 at Napa. I just installed a set of them a few days ago, and they've got a lifetime warranty. If you had checked the OTHER thread you started you would see that I already mentioned these wires (tee hee, tee hee). If you ask for the wires for a '95 SSEi you'll get the 8mm set. Otherwise I think the '96+ were only 7mm for all models. You can double check that with the Napa guy. Hope you track down this elusive problem you've been having. It'd be a shame if those monstrous Taylors were shucking out on you.

Not sure of the 409'* but most wires are @40 ohms per foot.
