To those of you that use PRJ wires - is your #4 wire REALLY tight and the same length as the #2 wire? Mine is pretty taught and running right across the SC housing. If it weren't for the wire seperators, it would be laying on the SC housing.

I can't check my wires since I just sold the car, but I can point you in the direction of someone else's car. Member Snook had PRJ wires and he had them running on the supercharger housing without any issues. You can see his routing in the first picture of his garage page.

That's really odd. There's no way possible my #4 wire could be routed the way either of yours is. I also have different boots.

The paper that came with my plug wires says the following:

"PRJ has chosen to change the routing of the ignition wires from that of the original equipment wires to facilitate making the wires all closer to the same length"

It says the boots are "variAngle" and can be bent 90 degrees. They're pre-bent at around 75 degrees.

I emailed 3800 performance and Paul himself wrote back saying all the back wires should be the same length.

The back cylinders ARE 2, 4, and 6 right? I also seem to have alot more slack on the front wires than you guys do.



Snook - How the HECK did you get your fuel lines so clean?!?! Mine are somewhat "tarnished" and no amount of scrubbing could get them clean. That's mostly why I put the sight shield back on. If I end up having to break down the engine (possible head gasket issues) I'm going to try and clean them up a little better or even replace them, and also paint my blower case, valve covers, and heads while I'm at it.

Who knows, wikipedia has conflicting info and there are conflicting diagrams when I google it. best thing to do is for me to go look at the plug wire numbers on my car when I feel like it.

I'm 99.9% certain 2, 4 and 6 are on the back of the engine.

When I replaced them, I did it one wire at a time so I was matching wire for wire. Also, it appears on the pictures above, that 1, 3, and 5 are in fact the front wires. Perhaps the labels were put on the wrong set or something. I'll Yank them off this weekend I guess and either measure them or compare the lengths.

The Wikipedia article confused me as well.

Mothers metal polish my friend! Or even steel wool if it the type of metal you can use it on.

According to my 2004 Impala/Monte Carlo service manual (Volume 2 of 3, page 6-1472)...

For the L67 &L36 engines, the front bank of cylinders are 1,3,5 and the rear bank of cylinders are 2,4,6.

I actually never cleaned em, but that polish should work fine. I took the engine cover off not too long after i got it, think thats why they stayed clean. The covers seem to hold dirt and heat imo...

Just realize the lines will be silver instead of brass looking, so once you start you gotta finish if you dont want mixed colors.

The wikipedia page is wrong. The numbers are as described 2 posts above from the owners manual. For clarity,
