There is a lot of science that goes into creating the perfect product. Such as the ignition wires on your GM LS engine. They have to be made a certain way. You don’t want them to burn up on the headers or exhaust manifolds. The Flame-Thrower wires from PerTronix do a great job of protecting from such a catastrophe. The 8mm wires have 45-degree ceramic spark plug boots that are sure to clear the exhaust. Not only that, but these wires have two-layer silicone jacketing that is rated for 600-degrees Fahrenheit heat protection.
The Flame-Thrower wires also conduct plenty of spark energy. If you break down the science to its most basic principle, there are two ‘paths’ for the spark to travel. A stainless-steel alloy spiral core acts as the primary path and a carbon-fiber impregnated fiberglass center core acts as the secondary path. Some other key features include low 500 ohm-per foot resistance. Also, EPDM rubber inner insulation that reduces arcing and voltage leaks while providing superior heat resistance. Fiberglass reinforcing braids add strength and flexibility as well. PerTronix Flame-Thrower wires come assembled and have a limited lifetime warranty.
