    Default plug wires..

    i want to get longer plug wires for the jet, i want to route them around the valve covers and not have them go over the top like they do now, how do i know how long to get and which ones for sure? the boat is not with me..and where is the best place to go get them at..or online?? its a 460 ford with a msd dizzy and box with a chip in it..thanks..

    MM- Taylors are great. I used the 45* boots (universal set) and don't forget to check out the little wire looms/holders from taylor too (mine were red). They sell them so you can stack them either vertically or horizontally (I bought the vertical ones). If you buy the universal wires don't forget to buy a good crimper (for ignition wires), it makes it alot easier.
