    Default Are All Wires The Same?

    I need a new set of plug wires on my BBC. There's "Marine" wires and then there are Hi-Performance wires like from Summit for cars. What's the difference? What do I want to use? I'm a newbie to jets, sorry for the dumb question. Thanks

    I cant say for sure but my guess is that the marine version is probably just for enclosed engine boats. I and most guys just run the non marine versions, not sure if MSD even makes a marine version of there wire.

    From what I can see the difference is about $5.00.
    I have a set of MSD 8.5mm but usually use Taylors. Got a deal on the MSD's.

    Taylors or MSD plug wires all the way. Dont bother with the Marine type most would agree its just a waste of money.
    Beer is the answer... but I dont remember the question.
