Here is some that are 25 ohms per foot http://www.vitekperformance.com/tech...erformance.asp

Factory wires are they claim "good" if resistance is under 1400 ohms/ft,general performance wires ie; regular Accels - 700 to 800 ohms/ft,Accel 300+ Moroso Blue Max Jacob's - 250 to 450 ohms/ft,MSD 8.5's 40 to 50 ohms/ft and then Moroso has a new wire that's 35 to 40 ohms/ft

Im trying to find info on the others

cheap test
Grab a water bottle sprayer and add a little regular dish soap and water and spray the spark plug wires WHILE THE ENGINE IS RUNNING . If the soapy water mixture finds a hole or soft spot in the spark plug wire the spark will jump out of the wire and ground itself to the water.

The engine will miss and run bad once the spark comes out of the water. If you see the spark come out of the wire grab that wire and if it shocks you replace them
