    Default plug wires

    what is the difference between 40 ohm wires and 50 omh wires, specifically the taylor thundervolt 50 409 race wire and the moroso ultra 40.

    10 ohms per foot

    No, I did that in my head. Its not exactly trig or calculus. If it was I would have had ram run the numbers for me.

    Hey smart ass, I had to at least know to add the PER FOOT part.

    so what dose it translate into as far as plug wires go. dose it change wire performance, good or bad, send more power to the plugs or what? im no electrician, so could someone please explain the real differences.


    im looking for the best wires to use on my msd promag 20.

    Call MSD. I think you would run a solid type wire. You will get some electro noise out of it that could mess with other electronics if you have them.

    MSD 20? I take it this is a upgraded 12.

    When you look at the resistance of most wires, the difference between the 40 and 50 is nil. Most wires are up around 300 ohms or more per foot. As an example, Taylor's 409(10.4mm) Pro Wire is around 350 ohms per foot.

    I like the Taylor Thundervolt 50. About the same ohms per foot as MSD's Super Conductor wire.
    Moroso claims around 40 ohms per foot. No big deal to me.

    Do you like Blue (Moroso), red(MSD) or black (Taylor Thundervolt 50) wires?

    ya its the updated version of the 12, and i like the black one. besides i already have the seperators for the 11mm wires.


    so the 300 ohm wires choke the the flow of electricity?

    msd says do not use a solid core wire.

    Are you kidding? If you tried to get a Vertex or Mallory to kick out 44 amps the housing would melt into a lump of molten aluminum. If you tried to fire a 44 thru plain cable wires you'd jack up TV reception 20 miles away, and screw with the radar at the 2 nearest airports. We're talking power here. Not some toy AC generator used in a high school lab to make frog legs jump.
