MSD is looking to Rev up your ride with the Rev'n Rebate 2015. From July 1st through August 31st, Purchase $250 - $500 of any MSD product and get up to $50 back. Get all the details from MSD now!

The MSD 8.5mm Super Conductor Wire is "the" performance wire. Engineered from the inside out, the 8.5 offers everything you have ever wanted in a wire; incredibly low resistance without electronic interference! Plus, the proprietary blend of silicone and synthetic material produce a sleeve that is highly resistant to high heat as well as abrasion and tears.

This universal 8 cylinder plug wire kit does require assembly, although the spark plug end is already installed. Comes with multi-angle (bendable) plug terminals and boots, including both HEI and socket style distributor ends. Combination stripping and crimping tool also included. Wires are red, boots are gray. 

  • Only 40-50 ohms of resistance per ft.
  • Lowest resistance of any helically wound wire
  • Unique materials and design provides extremely effective Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI) "choke"
  • Keeps the EMI inside the wire where it cannot interfere with other electronics on your vehicle

Installation of plug wires and wire loom

March 18, 2015
Just can't say enough about Speedway ( the only way to go) The ease of ordering, they excel over all the other places that call themselves parts houses. I ordered MSD plug wires and wire loome's . No scratches packed very well with heavy paper, not that popcorn stuff thats gets all over the place. And again the delivery was one day early, that means only two days to get here. ( California) So I could get to work installing them. You started your business when I got out of High School (1952). I am 80 years old and finishing up my 1923 T Bucket. Thank you speedway for being there. Don Mescheder Torrance CA
Pros:
  • ease of installition
Yes, I recommend this product.

Works Great Once You Get The Hang of It

September 26, 2013
Wish these kits came with a couple of practice wires to work on your crimping skills before you actually start. My first two crimps were pretty jacked up, but they got better as you went. It just takes a little patience and I found I needed to use wire pliers to make a satisfying crimp since the crimp made by the provided plastic tool did not turn out how it looks in the pictures.
Pros:
  • Quality Materials
Cons:
  • provided tools not adequate
Yes, I recommend this product.
