    Sparkplug wire heat shields

    I'm installing Crane Fire Wire plug wires. They claim the boots on their wires resist heat up to 550 degrees. Can I get rid of the stock heat shields so new wires can be an easier install. Also I don't have headers to worry about.

    Not familiar with those, but when I did plugs/wires (taylor) I didn't bother putting the stock heat shields on.

    on stock manifolds you should be fine. Even with headers it's seldom a problem. My buddy has FLP's on his vette and they kill his plug wires even with 1200 degree shields on them.
