In too many instances, engine builders or rodders tend to view spark plug wire installations as necessary evils. The engine assembly may feature thousands (or even tens of thousands) of dollars’ investment in components, machine work and assembly labor. The powerplant may spit out gobs of horsepower and torque. It may be dressed externally with gorgeous chrome, anodizing, powdercoating, polished aluminum, etc., but in too many cases, the plug wires are treated as an afterthought, running willy-nilly over or around the valve covers. Or the builder may have simply purchased over-the-counter chrome, aluminum or plastic wire looms and brackets, following traditional tried-and-true trends for their routing methods.
Since most rodders tend to desire unique custom features throughout their builds, why not continue this same methodology with regard to the plug wires?
In other words, there’s no law that says that you must copy what everyone else does.
Included here are several examples of custom plug wire routing approaches. I’m not about to claim that you’ll like each example, but the point of this article is to get the creative juices flowing with regard to the plug wire packages.
