Finally caught the mod bug. In 1 week SLP longtubes and LM1 get installed and a port and polish on the throttle body with a coolant bypass will be done at the same time. New set of taylor plug wires going in with the install since they will be out to do the install anyways. SLP poly rear stabilizer links done already. Soon to some will be Pedders poly radius rod bushings and strut mounts. Tune will follow up shortly as well to ensure im getting all the power I can out of the car. More mods in the future to come but these are the extremly soon to do mods. Would do more right away but the GSX-R 1000 is getting new rubber and velocity stacks/bmc race filter this spring/summer as well.

Really? I've read only good things from people who got them on ls1gto. I considered jba and msd but everybody who got them said they were shit and wouldn't buy them again.

The best wires I bought are on my 70 Coronet firecore 50's made by a friend of mine and a lot of the serious bracket racers run them. Let me know if you need a set I'll give you the info.

I have had 2 sets of Taylors (1 sbc, 1 LT1) and both sets got a bad wire in them in a matter of months.

But not to shit all over you here but why the upgrade in wires?

Well hopefully I won't have that issue like you did. Since I'm doing the header install I figured I might as well get new plugs and wires when I do the install as well. I just ordered all the stuff from the same place and I ordered what I heard was a good set of wires. I also liked the idea that they held up good against the high heat my longtubes will put out. And the last thing was that they are 10.4mm instead the 8.5mm. And whenever I replace something I replace it with something better than stock haha.

Well its too late since you already ordered them.

But the stock coil packs and wires are good till you start making real power. North of 7-800

Yep and I was going to get them again but I didn't like the idea of them being next to my headers. No confidence they would hold up to the extra heat. And covers I found were $60 so I thought just getting plug wires for that price that can handle the heat seemed like a better idea.

I ran the stock wires with no covers and uncoated headers on a 485rwhp h/c ls1 car. Not one issue.

Just saying.

But hey you will have some cool looking plug wires.

Mine have about 5000 miles on them but im doing my plugs this week for an unrelated reason. Should I man up and get a different set to put in right away before i regret it?

Here is a good example of post that should have been a pm.

But as far as the wires go its up to you.

update: exhaust is on and its really loud. awesome loud. just need to replace an O2 sensor and all will be well. this means that so far the gto has slp longtubes, slp lm1 catback, slp MAF, K&N filter, slp rear stabalizer link bushings, lovells front radius rod bushings, hurst short throw shifter, and taylor thundervolt plug wires. still looking forward to port and polish on the throttle body, slp underdrive pulley, lightweight skid plate, removal of tow brace, and a tune. car should make decent power.
