Just for the record, Both North and Blackbird told you not to do something.

Seriously, take it as law.

The wires are all fitting fine now and they came with some dielectric grease on both ends. Plus as mentioned they come with the warranty in case anything ever happens to them

I keep a large tube of dielectric grease(~$10) in my tool box and encourage everyone to have some in hand.

Add a dab whenever you remove either end of the plug wire.

I tried to boil a set of MSD's, I couldnt get the clip to move. That is when I tossed them in the garage and bought the set of bosche, which if I remember right, carry a lifetime warranty.

If the clip doesnt reach the plug, cutting them down wont help. That only helps if the clip is too far down and causing the top cover on the wires not to seal around the plug tubes on the head cover

i swap my Bosch wires out every time i change the plugs.Whether they need it or not. It's free. What's not to like about a lifetime warranty?

Have been running the BOSCH wires for almost a year and I am happy with them.

Can't prove if they improve or decrease performance as I would have to dyno with the BOSCH plugs and then another brand to see if there was any difference. Not something I am willing to do!

I used to run the MOPAR blue performance plug wires and they were great (At least they looked great!)

Came out last Spring after a few cold nights and car was only running on 3 cylinders.

Opened the hood and saw something had gnawed right through one of my wires!

Same here.

Just like the stock ignition coil and NGK4306 spark plugs, I see no reason to use anything else.

They're for carbureted engines with distributors (mechanical cap and rotor ignition) and some magneto applications. Our cars are designed to use spiral-core wires.

Magnecor\Mopar Performance\MSD\Bosch Premium > Granatelli




Yup, lower resistance isn't a measure of how good a wire will perform in a car with electronic ignition. Voltage leaks occur from the ignition coil when there isn't enough resistance in place to hold back the energy that is building in the coil. When the coil voltage rapidly rises if there's nothing holding it back it'll lose some of the accuracy and lower the delivered voltage to the spark plugs.


Also of note, a thicker wire isn't a better wire. The advertised diameter is that of the insulation, not the conductor.
100% agree Granatelli wires are crap, I'll never use again.
Mopar performance have been good to me, I have new Magnecor wires..... going to try out with a new tune.
