    Default 90 zr1 spark wires what brand is best choiche?

    Hi al.
    I must replace my old wires, they still are the originals 19 years old.

    Original OEM or high performance? What brand? nology? magnecor? accel? msd? high performance wires really will work better than OEM?

    i like the msd wires .have them on all my zr1s .they are a little long so you can trim to fit . only 540 ohms resistance

    I second the MSD thing. That's what I've had on my LT5 for about ten years. MSD makes a custom fit set of Super Conductor wires and that's what I'd put on your engine.

    I went with an OEM set from G.M. These were about $75.

    How are those in terms of radio performance - unwanted noise.

    The MSD SuperConductors use a low-resistance/high-suppression wire. I've never run any objective tests of RFI from the MSD wires on my LT5, but the sound system works well on the AM band, where typically, if there is significant RFI, you will hear it.

    There's no big performance difference between a new set of OE wires and the others. However, the OE wires supposedly degrade after a couple of years of heavy use. A good set of spiral core wires will last much longer. I like the Accel super stock. The price isn't too bad and they are available in black so you'd really have to be looking close to notice they aren't original.
    All fast cars are fun but, an old Vette is a work of art.

    I bought MSD, and I'm not too happy because as you told they are a little (too) long... they look poor as they are.
    How you solved this problem?
