    ok so I got my engine back from the builder. It’s a 416 scat stroker with a 285/.480 cam. I am going stock look and will be using HP manifolds and fully restored six pack. I am not expecting 500hp but I think it should make some good numbers.

    I have always used pro billet with msd box. What does everyone recommend these days. I would like wires that look somewhat stock. The dist is kinda hidden especially with the six pack cleaner. Is the reliability and performance worth using something different than the regular mopar electronic ignition?

    If you want to use skinny wires (7mm) ? you won't get the benefit of hi energy ignitions as they will have a tendency to bleed and arc. Hi energy ignitions use heavy core wires because they have to. Pertronix is a good one out there.
