All I am finding are $130 8mm wires for this distributor. Are there mid range quality HEI wires for my MSD Black Redy to Run distributor (under $100) that will work fine on my pretty stock motor. Also, do I have to run a blaster coil or can I run the same coil as I do with my Mopar electronic distributor with Chrome box? Thanks!

Firecore50. Nut much cheaper tho, at least at Mancini. You might be able to find them for less if you shop around.

Try Taylor, or looking through Summit or Jeg's catalogs.

We run nothing but Taylor Spiro pros.2 sets in over 20 years on my 440 with 2 inch headers.Only reason I changed them was they were shabby.Ran them on my 57 Chrysler Myjkid on his 413 with headers.Plus had them on my Durango and 3 small block.Rocky

If it doesn't have to look near-stock, the regular 1990-ish Ford F150 V8 epoxy coil is my favorite.
Tech West put me onto that years ago when my Blaster2 failed & took out my MSD6.
I've used that coil on 3 cars so far.

I've run both Firecore and Taylor. Both are good wire sets but I prefer the Firecore.

looks like them Ive had them and has my kid on cars with headers and never melted any.Oh yeah I do have some insulation on 7 because of the big tubes.Just use some diaelectric on the plug ends as they hold real tight and it helps them come offf easier.Rocky
