I have a bunch of blue 9mm looms, some used, some new.

There are different sizes, such as 2-wire, 3-wire, 4-wire, etc.

You can have them if you want, for free

PM me with a shipping address.

Moroso sells spacers in different colors, you can get them at pretty much any parts store or speed shop, they are pretty cheap.

The frpp wires suck for some reason, I ended up removing a 6 month old set and replacing with OE motorcraft wires after getting a MIL for misfire, which i tracked down to being a faulty wire.

They are overpriced also for some reason.

I got Moroso spacers for a v8 and I just didn't use one of the spacers. I did use one of the 4 slot spacers to hold the ignition wire too. I got them for I think 10 dollars at a local parts store.

I also got some blue looming from the local ricer shop.

ohh...this might be out of topic...but would running your wires without wire spacers( for now they are lightly zip tied) make the car run rough or missfire?

Probably not since they are FRPP but the insulation will wear away where the wires rub together. I learned that when my Motorcrafts did that because they were touching in one spot. So I deffinetely used spacers and made sure they didn't touch anything anywhere unless it has wire looming around it.

He doesn't have the FRPP wires, he's got LiveWires.

Okay, well the same still applies they are still aftermarket higher quality wires.
