Hey guys the wires that I have on my car now are old and are getting burned by the headers. What do ou guys use to protect your wires from burning? Or is there a certain type of wire that won't burn? Also what is a good wire to use?
BTW i do have wire looms, but the wires still hit the headers.

I use 9mm TAYLOR HIGH TEMP wires, with the 45 degree angle type, because on my GM-454/425 HP. engine, the spark plugs go in on an angle.I don't have headers anymore, but these wires held up even when I did. I also use the wire looms too. here's some pics... http://albums.photopoint.com/j/album...714&a=12175153

I too was burning my plug wire boots on the headers. I've sinced installed spark plug boots or socks. Any of the mail order performance catalogs should have them.
