    header burns threw plugwire

    need help asap im drivin to kentucky fri! ok next time i want to modify or work on my car kick me in the nuts and have a profesional do it. i was checking my header bolts as a few backed out earlier and was just checkin them and noticed some flashing under the driver side header. it looks like the header burned threw the wire which could help explain why its been running like crap. now im no mechanic ( but i do know the difference between brake fluid and oil ) but how should i go about this. can i just change one wire or do i have to change all( only have about 8k on plugs and wires). is it a easy job or a PITA? also how do i go about rerouting them with out takin the header off? can it be done? Im an idiot i know.

    happens to all of us man, well at least to me
    i just replaced that one wire and bought some spark plug wire insulators and that should take care of that problem. no need to reroute your wires different from the stock positions.
    i also recommend you check the sparkplug too, just in case, cuz when that happen to me my spark plug cracked for some reason. and it started misfiring, running like shit.

    That will work well in a pinch. We like to run high temp wires with heat socks.

    What kind of wires do you have?

    OEM wires with 131k miles here. Never had an issue. OEM wires are pretty darn good IMO.

    the msd wires have the long boots and you can bend those to angle them away from the header. My buddy has had a major issue with this in his c-5. Even through the kevlar sleeves his headers ends up drying and cracking the #7 plug wire. The sleeves also look like shit now from being burned. I just put my plugs on and give the boots a good bend to get them away from the primary.
