Plug wires under headers

Has anyone out there ran plug wires under the headers? I am doing a tune up on my 68 327 and thought about doing that route with some race fit wires. The heat makes me worry, but Im not highly experienced with this topic. I like have the wires out of the way, but my old setup had the moroso wire looms that made the wires a bit more organized. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Re: Plug wires under headers

I have done this on several motors. Never had a problem with heat or chaffing. I just like the cleaner look.

67 RS Clone, 388 SBC/Keisler TKO 600/12 bolt, 3.90 gear w/posi and a 250 shot of N2O for fun. See my progress at: password is camaro

Re: Plug wires under headers

I did the same thing. I ran the wires under the headers utilizing the bolt holes on the block for the GM heat shields to hold wire separators. I also ran the wires through some Earls Flame Guard to provide additional protection from the heat.

Good luck
