Your Corvette's ignition system has a very direct effect on performance. Aftermarket ignition systems like those from ACCEL and MSD have never been more reliable. Have you looked at your Corvette's ignition system lately? Are you experiencing a rough idle at the traffic light and/or detonation under hard acceleration? Perhaps aging ignition wires are to blame, along with burned ignition points or a cracked distributor cap. It's time to think about new ACCEL ignition parts and a fresh set of Extreme 9000 spark plug wires to get your Corvette back into the fast lane.

When it's time to replace spark plug wires, it is important to think about how they should be installed. Although today's ignition wires have plenty of insulation to prevent crossfire and misfire, they still have to be routed and secured to where there's no chance of crossfire between cylinders or a misfire due to poor continuity. Start your engine in a dark garage and watch for crossfire across spark plug wires. Crossfire can happen when spark plug wires are routed too close to one another and high-voltage electrical energy takes the path of least resistance to ground or an adjacent spark plug wire. A misfire comes from lost energy to ground that never makes it to the spark plug. Another important issue is ignition coil output. You want an ACCEL high-energy aftermarket ignition coil where misfire is less likely to happen, especially with a high-compression or boosted engine.

We're working with a 1968 C3 Corvette coupe with a 350ci small-block that has had a sweet weekend driver restoration by Hot Rods by Dean. For some "final massaging," we find our own MotorTrend Tech Center Technician Christian Arriero under the hood. What we want from our Corvette coupe is a solid and reliable pleasure cruiser that can be driven anywhere without concerns. The Corvette's ignition system is being appointed with fresh ACCEL Extreme 9000 ignition wires with ceramic boots, which are heat resistant, offering enthusiasts a cure for heat-damaged spark plug wire boots. (We already had placed an electronic MSD distributor with a "small" cap, so that it will fit beneath the factory ignition shielding, to the Chevrolet Performance crate engine we lifted from our friendly Summit catalog.)

These 8mm Ferro-Spiral core wires with ceramic spark plug boots can withstand up to 2,000-degrees F. If you're running headers with close tolerances or have an engine bay with tight quarters, these custom wire kits are the answer for burned and melted boots. Each Extreme 9000 cable uses a 500-ohms/ft Ferro-Spiral core developed for high-performance use. As an extreme conductor, these high-energy wires provide excellent current delivery to the spark plugs while providing the highest level of RFI/EMI suppression, which is especially important in Corvettes. This is the spark plug wire enthusiasts have long dreamed of because it offers everything you're going to want in an ignition wire. The Extreme 9000 Ceramic Wire kit also feature stainless steel spark plug terminals, which resist corrosion and are excellent conductors. On the distributor end of these wires, you get brass terminals, which also resist corrosion and conduct electricity quite well. Opt for an ACCEL high-performance distributor cap and rotor and you can count on solid reliability for years to come. Let's get started. Vette
