I find the rear wires easier, at least in regards to the retainer (or lack of one). But the rear wires usually suffere heat-related failures before the fronts. Although with the rears, I have to put wire loom on each one, and thread them under the SC nosedrive. That can be a PITA sometimes.

If you think you have good wires back there Jason, you're doing the right thing by letting them tell YOU when to do them!

One of my Taylor'* was DOA out of the box.

should we put a temporary flag on Taylor wires so other members dont waste their money? Maybe recommend the MSDs, the Belden Blues or the stockers?

stocker I think for now.. it'* tried and trued.

As for MSD and such.. I think we should refrained from promoting them till Bill or someone test them out.

I vote belden.. a few members recommended them, and they have the right price, especially for the lifetime warranty! I know I will be purchasing them.. when I have the money . Anyone know the resistance on one of 'em? MSD has a kit for the GP 3800 [*/C'd], I don't know if its compatable with our B'villes.. but its $32.99 from jegs [I am unsure if they have a warranty]. I think Bill will be the test dummy

I'm holding back on testing the rear wires because I don't wanna rip them apart.

People have run MSD here, I may in the future, the taylors are a few bux cheaper at one place then MSD.


MSD are $52.99 at jegs.

either taylor or rogue has some massive 10mm ones.

Belken should be okay (hell, its a lifetime warranty!)
