Good/Bad Spark Plug Wire Brands
 
About to change out the spark plug wires and boots (along with plugs). What brands have you had a good experience with? What brands are a no-no?

Mopar ones are the best. 270,000 miles on the wires on my 05 RT Magnum, and 190,000 miles on the ones on my Ram. Nary a problem. I run 180F thermostats to keep underhood temps lower, though.

No issues with the 6.1 / 2006+ coils

Impressive, love hearing of the hemis going for that many miles. I was just going to change out the wires and boots as routine maintenance, all cylinders are firing beautifully but now I doubt if I should even change the wires

Taylor 10.4mm Thundervolt 50 shorties, had them on my 05 and look a lot nicer that all the criss cross mess with NGK Iridium IX plugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I second the Taylor shorties. Better spark on the combustion cycle and there's not much benefit at all to the exhaust cycle burn, which is why it went away in 06.

Thanks for the input guys, I think I may purchase those shorties to clean things up a bit!
