I have a 454 engine in a 69 SS Chevelle, I have Hedman headers with Merlin heads, AC r44ts plugs. I cannot get the wire off of the header pipe. Is there a good type of plug wire for the HEI that will give me a 90 or 135 degree bend out there?

I run the 8.5mm Super conductors. Big block with onyl 1 3/4" header tubes. The spark plug end has nice 135* boots and clear my headres just fine. The wire retainer clips wouldn't harness these big wires easily, so my wire routing looks like total crap. BUT, they don't get burned!

-MSD has a good parametric layout of their supply line. They list the motor, the kind of ignition, plug angle...

In the Accel Extreme 9000 series of sparkplug wires there is a set that has bendable boots.They are universal fit so you can cut them to fit your particular needs. Summit has them under part # ACC-9003. Jegs has them under part # 110-9003.
