Mod Tested: Shortie Spark Plug Wires
Date: 10/12/06 - 10/13/06
Dyno Location: SVS R&D, Sacramento CA
***Remember to always review and keep in mind the Mods Face Off Testing Methodology Q&A while reviewing these results.***
- They look gooood!
*NOTE: We tested this previously and showed similar results. We've retested these again due to significant request.
- There's no denying it; on a 2005 5.7L MDS engine, those shortie wires have a negative effect on performance, although minimal.
These two pulls closely follow the averages for the entire set. This is average vs average, not worst vs best.

Interesting. I wasn't around for this. Did anyone figure out why the negative effect?
Well thats not what i was expecting.
Is it the same for the 06's?

humm what is with that weird dip, I have seen that before....
yea my pre header dyno runs had that dip I would be willing to bet it is at the same rpm's
Have we found out anythingabout that dip ? I think its a bit weird that its there with the shortie wires and not with the stockers. But that same dip was on my ( Cat back and Ram Air SC 87 tuned car ).
/me scratches his head on that one

Well, I dont know much about reading the graphs, but i did watch the videos and the guys were running the dyno in 3rd and 4th gears, so the dip maybe a gear change

te huge dip is the gear change, look just a tad past that and you will see a dip that looks very much like the one on my graph.
These were Taylor wires. AFAIK these are among the best money can buy. True?
After some quick searching, I found this from a year ago:
Dangit. I have to call SVS and hope my wires are still there.

Bummer. But I'll bet they're still there. (Referring to your original stockers, I presume?)
I don't really want to start a full on debate on this... (maybe I do) but I still disagree with the conclusion.
Since you somehow lost 6 HP between run 119 and 120... on the same setup...
How can we conclude that this loses HP? When the loss is in the the 2 HP ragnge???
I draw this conclusion.... These will not have any affect on your performance positive nor negative.
They're perty... and I'm a keepin em on my ride!!!
(that is an odd dipp RobAGD... The only think I can think of is Operator error, does it occur in more than one file?)
