    MSD's are nice, especially if you have headers. You can bend the boots for additional clearance and they will hold their shape. If you are running stock exhaust manifolds, then a set of "parts store" wires will get you down the road just fine. Just be sure to swap over the metal heat shields.

    Honestly, you will not notice a performance difference between parts store ignition wires and MSD ignition wires, unless you somehow get a defective set of wires. Completely your call.

    I went with good ole AC Delco wires when I swapped plugs a few weeks ago. Car had MSD wires on it before and after talking to my tuner he told me to skip the MSD wires so I did.

    I run Duralast wires from Autozone on our Suburban. Installed them around 10,000 miles ago and have had zero issues. Mileage actually improved just a touch, but I also swapped plugs, cleaned the throttle body and MAF and changed out the air filter too.

    Granatelli makes a set of 0 ohm wires but I've never seen anything outside of their site saying they get you any net gains.

    If 600-700hp LS motors run standard wires they are good enough for mine lol that's for sure.

    I run MSDs as well. Can't say I noticed a difference in how the car drove, but they length and the boots are a nice feature.

    I don't think you can feel any power or fuel mileage gain but they last forever and do not break down internally.

    No matter what wires you go with, I highly recommend that you squirt a dab of dielectric grease into each boot before installation.
