Ignition Wires

There are many brands of replacement spark plug wires out there of varying quality, size, and appearance. The best have spiral wound metal conductors in their cores instead of just a single strand of graphite impregnated fiberglass. High performance wires are typically 8mm or larger in diameter and come in colors that can burn out your retinas. They neither look stock nor do they fit into OEM looms.

PerTronix offers the Flame-Thrower 7mm "Stock-Look" wire sets for those who want high quality, high performance wires without the engine looking like a carnival. They are black, have no lettering, fit in OEM looms, and come as custom sets cut to length. They have low resistance to get more spark energy to the plugs, excellent shielding to help prevent cross fire, and a pure silicone outer jacket to resist heat. With all this and a lifetime warranty, what more could you ask?

Some of us drive cars that aren’t stock. Looking under the hood of a street rod should burn out your retinas. For rods and modifieds we offer the Flame-Thrower 8mm MagX2 wires. These are great performance wires that can handle high energy systems and high heat environments . MagX2 wires come as universal sets which allow you to cut each wire to length for your particular application. Both male and female crimp-on terminals are included so these sets can be used with either HEI or points-type distributor caps.   They come in black, blue, or red, with white "PerTronix 8.0 Flame-Thrower MagX2" lettering. There’s a lifetime warranty on these, too.
