    She ate my MSD wires

    Yep, they were on there for quite some time but where the passenger side wires pass behind the serpentine belt turned out to be a bit too tight. One wire slipped forward just enough to catch the belt and it peeled the insulation. Since I had that set of wires zip tied together, well, others suffered as well. Boy she just doesn't seem to run the same, hehe. Anyways, they were a bitch to put in and I think I'm just gonna slap some stock replacements back in there. A set of autolites are around $40 so roughly half the price of the MSD's and I know they will fit in the factory looms. Anybody else had this happen yet?

    i have had my msd wires on for a few monmths now and have not had any problems. i have the moroso wires looms for that more secure fit. if you were to get those and stick with the msd they should work out fine. i also have lt's on my ss and it makes for an easier change as well. good luck to ya.

    Hehe, wish I would have bought those looms now. I guess this is what I get for being cheap. You're right about changing the wires with the stock manifolds on, it's just a whore. Oh well, looks like I got some pre-superbowl work to do this weekend

    Yep, and for that reason stock replacements went back on. They work just fine and there isn't nearly the clearance issue as with the super conductors.
