Default HP ignition wires?

I am looking for a link or a part # for something similar to Accel's 8.8mm wires....but there's a catch. I want YELLOW wires (my car is yellow). Anyone got some info for me?

Do you mean something like these?

These are for an 8 cylinder GM 305 CI engine, so maybe you will find 4 in the set that can match up with the saturn plug lengths?
Or you will have several extra ones leftover.

Yes, and thanks Toggenburg. BUT....the only thing that was holding me back from pulling the trigger on those was that I wanted to be sure that the plug boots would fit down into the "Tunnels" in the cam cover on my DOHC 1.9L.
Has anyone done anything like this and which wire set did you use? My car is almost 20 years old...I CAN'T be the first person who wanted to do something like this?

Well, if anything, these appear to have an even smaller diameter than the plug boots on my 98 SW2 and the 2001 SW1 cam cover.

OK, thanks again. This wire looks like it just might work for me. I just need to get to a speed shop and bribe the counter guy into opening a box of SBC-wires lol. I'm still hoping to hear from someone who's done this mod.

I'm not sure where the problem is.

Cut to length & reuse the stock boots into the valve cover.

If you have to have the Accel brand, they're about $10 more on Amazon than the ones I linked to.

I don't know that there IS a "problem". I was simply looking for an answer to a question.
Thanks for the link, I may end up going with the "Super Stock" set, I was really wanting to go with the 8.8mm (heavier) wire but it's probably overkill. Planning to do plugs again in a week or so and hoped to do this as a "one and done" scenario. One of the plug boots on the existing set is damaged at the top...son-in-law isn't very patient with stuff that isn't made of wood lol.

Granatelli Motorsports makes an 8mm wire with 0-ohm/ft of resistance. You don't get to choose color and they cost close to $90. They work great. I averaged 35mpg with automatic and my oil guzzling twin cam.

I got Granatelli's for my 2000 SC1 from Jeg's. Actually Jeg's just drop ships from Granatelli's and does not stock very part number. Took almost three weeks to get (not Jeg's fault), mine were blue color and fit very well - even worked with the stock plug wire clips.

I've got those same ones, just in red. They seem to work well. They are kinda pricey, but the boot does slide to adjust to fit the plastic or aluminum valve cover, so that's nice.

Zero ohms/foot is pretty awesome. We should be using them for electric transmission lines.
