Our C7 Corvette performance spark plug wire sets begin with a heat shielded Magnacor wire. Magnecor's exclusive 2.5mm high capacity Metallic Inductance EMI Suppressed conductor consists of a stainless steel wire precisely wound at 200 turns per inch over a ferromagnetic core. The insulating jacket is made entirely of Magnecor's exclusive TC-1500-HS high strength aerospace grade silicone rubber, and its single layer construction will prolong the jacket's insulating ability by conducting extreme heat away from hot-spots that occur near over-the-limit heat sources.
The protection provided from the heat shield guarantees that this will be the last set of spark plug wires you will ever have to replace from header burn. The 8.5mm jacket has a service heat resistance of 600 degrees F (320 degrees C) and up to 1,000 degrees F (540 degrees C) for a short burst of 3 minutes. Even if limits are exceeded, the silicone rubber will retain its insulating ability until wires are removed from engine. In addition, Zips Corvette wires include 6 long fire boots, which enable the wires to withstand 1200 degrees of direct heat.
Magnecor wires are primarily designed and constructed to be used where it is essential to prevent the possibility of ignition wires compromising engine performance. Modern race engines, modified street engines and stock street engines which rely on electronic devices to control the function of either or both the ignition and fuel systems are prone to interference from all other spiral conductor ignition wires sold through performance parts outlets, none of which can provide proper suppression for EMI, particularly if a high-output ignition system is used.
Zip Corvette recommends the use of our performance spark plug wires on any stock or modified 2014-2017 Corvete Stingray with or without headers which will improve ignition performance in all applications.
