Couldn't agree more, I had to get me some Taylor wires. My name and all for those who haven't picked up on my screen name.

The nice thing about the PRJ wires are that a like that they use the MSD boots with the embossing MSD on them and they wires say "TAYLOR spiro 409 Pro-Race wire" on them and they're way fatter than most other aftermarketwires. Very nice. IF your getting new wires that a thicker and do nothing other than looks sweet and insure a good spark is going through, why not get the fatest wires out there.

I know that they didn't add any performance really, so what?
I've got plexiglass and mirrors in my trunk and the don't serve a purpose either.

All SHOW baby, got some GO too.

That'* why GM put those metal heat shields around their plug wire boots. That exhaust gets very hot +500 F and the radiant heat off stock manifolds really cooks things.

No problems with my Taylor 1200 F boot protectors.

The header flat finish ceramic coating radiates far less than the stock manifold. I have measured a 250 F drop in temp over stock surface temp.

Got me thinking about it with my new TOG'*, just to be safe, think I'll order up some boot protectors for my 10.4 wires. Help hide the ugly bright orange rubber boots

I still have the metal protectors. The fronts don't need them, they get fresh air. I cleaned them off some before reinstalling them.

I have yellow Taylors. My middle rear boot has a problem where the metal contact is not actually connected to the boot anymore. Is this a problem? If so can I fix myself or do I send them back? Also do they make boot protectors for that wire type or do I even need them?
