Plug wire help????

I need to figure out what to do for plug wire ends. I don't want to use plug extenders with Electromotive. What have you guys done in the past? I have seen some nice v8 hemi plug ends that looked like they would work. Please let me know what you used and the part # Thanks again Bill.

Bill, if you're staying with the Electromotive coilpacks, I'd give Chris a call at Kingsborne or email him: [email protected] and see what he can come up with. He carries lots of wiresets for Ferrari, and can build custom sets to nearly any spec you want. They're good guys out there. Here's their page on just Ferrari wiresets: Ferrari Wiresets - Kingsborne Ignition Spark Plug Wires Sets made in the USA

If you'd have interest in something a little more 21st century than coilpacks and HT wires, ie a COP (Coil on Plug) setup I'd be happy to work with you on a system.

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.

I put a couple sets of accel honda prelude on a 2v and it worked out pretty well. I had to shorten the tubes on them a little but it was pretty straight forward. I can't see why that wouldn't work on a qv too.

On my qv (I hadn't found the honda wires yet) I just bought a set of straight wires and installed them using the oem head seal boot. The plug boot came right to the bottom of head boot....wait I remember trimming a little off the head boot to get it to sit in all the way. It was very easy and the extenders were gone forever.
