one thing that would turn me off right away is that they have the Supercharged motor listed at a Vin K, when that is the NA motor

for the extra eight dollars might as well just buy the belden blue napa wires
they are not 8mm but they are name brand and they work
versus getting wires you have no idea about
just my .02 cents

Beldens are pretty good, my only thing about them is if you ever want to use the warranty you need the original box and receipt in hand. Otherwise..you get nothing.

I've been a fan of the AC Delco wires personally. If you get them at Advance/Checker they carry a lifetime warranty that is linked to your phone number.

I'm running MSD wires, mainly got them because they are red. You will get no performance increase with wires. Can't say I know anything about those wires. Length is a issue, you don't want to come up short. I have one wire that'* just a LITTLE short. Stock wires will be fine unless you want a certain look.

First off....you can't even get good stock replacement wires for $24...and why trust someone that right in the middle of their advertising says a 3.8SC is a VIN K...umm duh...if you wanna sell parts to the blown 3800 guys they better know thier sh*t first...

Our Belden wires are pretty much the best out there, but if you wanna get serious ask your counterman to pull out his NAPA Wire book, Belden sells everything you really need to build your own 8mm wires, same quality, and you can adjust your own length for clearance on other mods....(Headers, ect.), I can get page/part numbers if anyone is intrested, I'm the Assistant Manager @ the Warehouse Main Counter in Des Moines, IA so if you guys have questions on our stuff, feel free to ask..
