I see the 8079 Wires are discontinued....I think the 9012 Wires were also....

What is the next best plug wire for these cars?

I run cut to fit MSD wires.  A V8 kit gives you x2 sets.


But a better thing to do is protect the wires from turbo heat so they last 10x longer.  Get some fiberglass boots that go on the plug end of the wire like these.

And get some spark plug wire insulation like this and slide it onto the wire.

Good Info.   Thank you!

Those NGK 53003 wires are $15.74 on RockAuto. May buy some to stock up on....

I will be trying some Taylor 87030 for $48 on Summit....

I've read good things about them on this forum...

My NGK 8079 #4 wire just got chewed up on water pump pulley while idling....

I was just about to get some Taylor wires since they worked so well on my typhoon, but the experience you have had gives me pause.

Buying those DEI spark plug heat protector boots makes a big difference. I cooked a set of wires in 10k miles before installing those on my new set. They lasted much longer.
