These Taylor Cable spark plug wires contain a resistance level of 350 ohms per foot.
1. MSD Spark Plug Wire Set [32829 8.5mm].
The MSD range of spark plug wires is super conductors. This is due to several factors. Firstly, a copper alloy wire is helically wound around the core. This creates an extremely low level of resistance: There are only 40-50 ohms of resistance in 12” of wire. At the same time, the level of RFI suppression is equal to that of an approximately 1,500-ohm wire. Every foot of wire contains 40 ft. of tightly wrapped copper. The core is ferro-magnetically impregnated, which provides an EMI choke. The Electro Magnetic Interference is then unable to obstruct other electronic devices nearby. These plug wires also feature a silicone jacket over a glass braid and dielectric insulator. A secure fit is ensured by the stainless steel, dual crimped terminals. These terminals are fitted with snap-on locks. MSD Super Conductor Spark Plug Wire Sets are sold in universal-fit or custom-made sizes.
A spark plug from this set is powerful enough to start an auto even when the battery is seemingly dead flat. The MSD super-conductor spark plug wires are seen as the most advanced and the most high-performance of spark plug wires.
