My son ,in checking to make sure the wires were seated,felt what he thought was a crack in the wire on #8.I checked it the next day and found that #8 and #6 had each touched the header and had burnt thru. Notified Taylor wire by e-mail and after several discusions they have furnished me the necessary parts to repair the wires although there was no defect in the wires. It was a pleasure doing business with a company that was truly interested in pleasing the customer.Based on this experience,I feel I will be a return customer and would recommend their wires to all.I used the 8mm Spiro wires.

It's good to hear about a happy customer/vendor relationship for a change. I'm currently running Taylor wires and they do the job for me. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Gene, it's funny you made a post about this.

I was just dealing with Taylor the other day because 3 of 8 of my plug boots melted into a goo, and they weren't even close to the headers. The customer service guy was very helpful and sent me 8 new boots and they arrived two days later. Awesome service.

Matt, I have to agree with you.I haven't had any problem with the other 6 wires. There appears to be adequate space between the wires and the headers. I am thinking about using some header wrap just in the problem areas.I received my new boots and terminals today and hope to get the on this weekend.

I heard a lot of good thing about Taylor wires but when I bought them I had a problem with them burning waaay to easy. Seems a lot of people talk trash on Accel wires but I've never really had problems with them and with my new headers they are really close to the primary tubes with no signs of melting (yet).

Chris, I think I've used about every brand of wire there is.So far I still favor the Taylor wires for their looks and so far their performance. Another good wire, for me, are the ones made by Petronix. Made a set for the 454 and they are still on it. I didn't realize there was a difference in the wire lengths for a 396 and a 454.
