My 8.1 developed the miss and i replaced the wires with high temp Taylors. They lasted a few years (probably less than 5000 miles) but then the high rpm miss came back. Went with the Magnums earlier this year and they've been good so far. I did make up my own version of a vent to help push air across the rear section of manifold.

The Magnums are kinda pricey but they do have a very good warranty.

Magnum wires, new 41-101 plugs and new heat shields are well worth the money.

Tell me about the "firesleeve"

The real problem is the construction of the plug wire...



Magnums have a solid SS core...

Yes and approximately $150.00 for the set.

Seems that this has turned to a plug wire discussion. I solved the problem with Banks headers and installed header wrap on them. Works great! Only downside is a bit louder under hard load. Not so sure about the hp./torque increase claims, but I know BB Chevys like headers.
It sounds like the plug wires are most likely your problem for the miss, especially if it's happening under heavy load. Good luck!

This strategy works extremely well as the headers shed heat like a duck sheds water.

When each cylinder has its own downtube and the stream of the other 3 forward cylinders doesn't go past the back cylinder, temperatures are radically different.

You may have observed that the HP & Torque gains on an 8.1 with Banks doesn't appear to justify the cost however from the perspective of shedding heat, it probably does a great job.

I guess I should go ahead and get a set of Magnum wires, so 'when' mine starts skipping, I'll just change the wires, and plugs, all at the same time.

BTW still got the original wires at 80,000 km. and she doesn't miss a beat!

What's the difference between the Magnum wires $150, and the Extreme Magnum wires $275? Are the Extremes worth the extra $$$? Thanks
