RE: Shortys or Full length spark plug wires for hemi???
Ok know it all.
I said downstroke, my bad, I meant exhaust stroke. But you are still wrong.
"No, longer wires have more resistance which will give you less spark...that's why people put high performance (low ohm's) wires on. With really short wires like shorties high performance wires aren't needed...short wires have low ohm's anyway.
The coils fire both plugs at the same time (or within milliseconds)soshorties should be fine. A plug won't fire during the exhaust stroke because you can get major damage if any unburned fuel ignites as the piston is on the exhaust stroke...it would have the same effect as detonation"
Guess you didn't read the link about wires or you heard different from your friends, oh well.
Within milliseconds? Electricity travels at the speed of light, do have a way a measure the delay in a one foot wire that we are not aware of?
Since you say the 12-15" longer plug wire makes more resistance, can you help us with how much more, also, at the high voltage that our coils produce, can you determine the amount of drop in the spark due to all that added resistance??
You say that "people" use low resistant plugs..... What people?
One more thing. Can you help us with how much positive or negative timing our engines have during normal ignition running and explain how it works? For instance, does our spark plugs fire on the combustion stroke before, during or after the top dead center piston relation to the cylinder. Thanks. I think that will help a lot of folks here.
Go back and read the link. It will help you, honest.
