    Spark Plug wires question?

    I have a 96 trans am with lt1 and i am installing longtube headers and aparently the previous owner never changed the wires on the car so i am wanting to put new wires on but dont know what kind of wires i was just told 8mm wires! but if i get direct fit will i have to cut and crimp the wires to the optispark or are they ready to just put up, and which ones do i need the 90 degree or straight ones? also where do i run route them on the engine , behind the power steering pump or somewheres else?

    I use Accel's Ferro Spiral wires and they work great. Other brands I would recommend from experience is the MSD Super Conductor wires, as well as Nology HOT wires. And if they are direct fit applications they should go right on with no modification.

    As far as plugs, NGK TR55 for naturally-aspirated applications, TR6 for blower, nitrous, or turbo.

    One more time, if there direct fit you do not have to cut/crimp them. As far as wiring, follow the factory wiring diagram. I'll almost guarantee you won't get away with it if you don't!

    When I installed my longtubes, I re-routed most of my wires on the passenger side. I also used MSD's 8.5mm superconductors. Zip-ties are a handy friend...

    When I installed my longtubes I also had to re-route my wires to keep them from burning on the headers, got the cut to fit MSD wires and ran them over my valve covers and dropped them in individually.
