    plug wires and pacesetter LT's

    I just installed my pacesetter LTs on my 01 WS6 and it was horrible getting them in, but then not bad once bolted up..I got the ones with the smog still hooked up but got the ORY from p setter.....problem is that the driver side has no room from bottom or top, I couldnt hear any of the boots on my wires snap on any plugs but #1 on passenger side, then the #2 on that side lays right on the emmissions deal and is very hard to get on the plug wire, the last 2 I got on there but just didnt hear a snap....it starts and runs great, but still doesnt seem right, is the one laying on the emmissions deal going to burn?....they are 8.5mm MSD's...I could afford them back then but not now..........any answers?...and no the stock heat shield boots dont help

    just bend the boot....the msd's have that longer boot and you can bend it and turn it to a position where it doesn't touch. If it's touching it will eventually dry the boot out and crack it.

    the boot is longer but ut doesnt really bend, if it does bend it goes back to straight unless its laying on a header tube

    mistake

    Sorry ya'll I meant in my original post that there was no room on the passenger side......driver side is wide open, simple, passenger I'd have to take the A/C apart to get them all on good....but like I said its running great...im leavin it alone...the ceramic VHT I took soooo much time on primering and painting is just cracking all over and falling off on certain spots
