Spark Plug Wires

Alright so i have a 2015 ZL1. I'm getting Kooks LT headers with the HI-FLO cats soon. Leave the catback stock for now and getting that mild2wild controller for the NPP exhaust. The guy installing it said to get spark plug sleeves but i feel weird just getting sleeves and plus i feel like getting some from auto zone doesn't feel right for a ZL1. So i might just upgrade and get spark plug wires. I heard MSD is too short for wires so i've been looking at Taylor wires. I called their tech support because i couldn't find which ones fit the 15 ZL1. This is the name and part number. Taylor StreeThunder Spark Plug Wire Sets #51044. These look alright but i'm really torn on what to get. Please help/share your opinions on what i should do/get.

I'm running the Taylor 409 10.4mm wires without sleeves, but I may add sleeves later on. You can also check out JBA PowerCables.

I was going to go with the taylor 10.4 but according to summit racing, it's not compatible with my 2015 ZL1.

i use a set from PCM of NC, really high quality and the fitment is really nice. I have turbo manifolds that have a even tighter clearance then longtube headers and these were perfect along with a DEI heat socks, dont buy the socks in black hard to see burns or if you made contact. picture of the fitment below.

I have the JDP Motorsports Spec'ed Taylor Thundervolt 8.2mm Spark Plug Wires with the boot made for header clearance and the thermal socks.

Been on for 1 year/5000 miles with no issues.

Unless your coil packs are in different location from a SS they will work fine. I'm using the Taylor 409 too with zero complain

I just replaced my jba power cables with a set of the MSD. I read they were short but they fit fine...i like the fact the spark plug boot is very narrow and is a good distance away from the header. Plus you can bend them a bit as well. Heres a pic of them.

3 years of JBA power cables on my summer only driven SS......the are dried right out and cracked. Thats why I had to replace them. No sleeves used.

I'm running OEM wires with thermal socks. No issues, runs great at the track or on the street.

Haven't had the first problem with the MSD wires, running ARH 2 inch headers.
