definitely your problem...just double check your clearance around the wire boot when reinstalling your new wires.

I had plenty of clearance with the MSD Wires but I guess the heat is still to hot. Not sure why if I'm coated with Swaintech. Hopefully the Granatelli with heat shield won't burn if not that's $300 buck down the drain.

Also some headers have more clearance than others. When i had kooks, i had to be really careful on how i placed the wires. With the CSP headers I have plenty of room. The only one that's somewhat close is I believe 2 or 4. Its the one where there's like no room because of the stupid dipstick tube...


I'm not a big fan on header coatings, i really dont think it does much other than look nice.

I have heard good things about the Granatelli wires...they should work out great!

What do you guys recommend. I have MSD Wires now is there anything better?

I ordered Granatelli with heat shield found a promo code.

These will help a ton! Be sure to push them all the way down over the boot.

OEM wires. Shield them if you have headers.
