    The Plugs are Done

    Just did the plugs, wires and fuel filter. Plugs and wires are FUCKING HELL on these cars!

    But what I kind of wan't to know is does anyone reuse the metal heat shield things for the plug wires?

    I did'nt but wanted to check.

    The wires I used were MSD's and I decided to go with the OEM Delco Iridium plugs.

    I didnt re-use the stock heat shields although i did pick up some "kevlar" sleeves for the wires when i instailed My lt's just for peace of mind. Some of the wires get kinda close.

    Why do you say that?? I reused the metal protector sleeves when I installed my Granatelli wires, more protection for the boots/wires the better.

    I also bought kevlar sleeves for the wires themselves, since a few of them touch the headers at certain spots.

    I still have the stock manifolds, nothing touches. Anyone else have any suggestions? I think they will be okay without any stuff on them. . . . . .

    I'm sure they will be fine, nothing to worry about. The metal sleeves just offer the extra protection for the plug boots.

    I wouldn't sweat it. I run MSD's with LT's with no shields at all on them. MSD boots can be bent to give you any room you might need.
