    0rion told me about the perfect fix -- bend the sh*t out of the boot. I have MSD wires and had to bend 3 or 4 of them to gain the clearance I needed.

    It should work, I would suggest to ditch the metal heat thingy in order to get it to bend and stay bent.

    I installed the MSD's when I did the LT's -- not sure about the stock boots but the above sounds correct. I also picked up a set of DEI sleeves as an extra measure of protection.
