    Hey guys, I am looking to order some new wires for my mild SBC...
    I know these are both good brands. I have ran MSD Streetfighters before and they seemed to work good. I also heard good things about Taylor Wires as well. So give me your inputs on each or other possible candidates... Any benefits from the 10.2mm vs the smaller 8mm?

    Thanks everyone!

    Forgot to mention I am running full MSD ignition set up... Distributor, coil, and spark box.

    Get wires that give 40 ohms/ft of resistance.

    Less ohms the better, right?

    Yes, less ohms (resistance) is better. These are measured per foot, so a 2 ft wire will have twice the resistance. I've used both Taylor and MSD spiral core wires and had good luck with both. I'm currently using MSD 8.5 Super Conductor wires because the boots seem to be more sturdy.

    i have run MSD 8mm wires for a long time. I have tried other wires over time .But I have had the best luck with MSD`s

    I've seen many many wiresets, nothing is better than the MSD Superconductors
    Low Ohm/foot, good insulation, double crimp connectors

    I use MSDs with no problem. In my opinion, if you are using MSD components, use their Wires!
