Here is what I did (Billet Specialties tie downs):


I had the Moroso ones before but they dumped my new set of wires onto the headers Expensive mistake, least now with the billet Specialties ones the wires aren't going anywhere. Also added the MSD silcone boot covers as well for added protection.

I have seen some trick ones where they route them under the headers, I'm sure someone will post some pics of that.

No pics, but I am using Taylor Spiro Pro and cant say enough about em. 135 deg boots and I ran them around the back of the v/c just using the simple clamp together seperators.

I am also running Taylor 9mm wires with 90 degree boots under my headers and I am extremely happy with them.

I'd post pics but I am embarassed about the condition of my headers.

I love the 135 deg boots on the Taylor wires. I have a set on my camaro with stock manifolds and a set on the truck with headers, both fit very well.

68bigblockSS and I use the same wire loom = fabricated. Note the SBC 327 3 wire bracket above #5 & 6 cylinders. I prefer the Accel 9000 Hi-Temp Universal Wires.





I've yet to find a wire loom as neat and efficient as one that you have fabricated.

I have ran these R&M's as well as the billet specialties that bigblock1969RS is running. They are both nice but be aware that the R&M are designed for an 8mm plug wire. If your like me I run MSD 8.5 super conductors, I managed to get them in the R&M's but they left some pretty deep impressions in the wire that worried me. Billet specialties makes most of their to hold up to a 9mm plug wire, something to consider while choosing.

Good luck, If I can be of any help let me know, I sell billet specialties products!

When you run the wires under the header how or what do you attach them to so that they dont slump down onto the header? Thanks

Believe it or not..........I have my wires secured together with small cable ties. You have to start at the front of the engine removing all unnecessary slack in the plug wires and that along with the cable ties keeps them from coming into contact with the headers. I don't think are under the spark plug wires looms are manufactured. If they are, I haven't seen them for sale.
