Taylor Cable

Firing the Finest Rides in America Since 1923

Taylor Cable also operates under the name of TaylorVertex. Taylor has been operating since 1923, leading the industry in ignition wires, battery cables, and other electrical and ignition components. They acquired Vertex Magnetos in 1994, and recently launched Percy’s, a brand by racers for racers. Taylor’s constant innovation and dedication to quality production here in the USA means that street drivers and racers alike are able to rely on Taylor products.

Most wires in your car carry 12-14 volts, no big deal; household wiring is ten times that. But ignition wiring voltages can get as high as 40-50,000 volts. The energy carried from the coil has to bridge a substantial gap across the spark plug gap, and that’s at Top Dead Center on the compression stroke, when the pressure is ten times atmospheric.

Taylor Cable® - Warranty Taylor Cable® - About

You can choose from a dizzying number of styles of wire, from near-direct replacement 8mm wires to race-ready 10.4mm monster wires that will fire a spark plug still in the box. Although Taylor is best-known for ignition wires, they’ve branched out over the years, with a highly race-oriented line of low-voltage electrical parts and accessories, like NHRA race-legal battery boxes and relocation kits, Vertex brand magnetos, replacement distributors, and Percy’s line of problem-solving gaskets, carburetor products, header fasteners and the innovative WheelRite.

Once you’ve figured out how to use two or three separate layers of silicone rubber to insulate the actual wire down the middle, you need to make sure it all goes to the plug, so the connections at both ends have to be perfect. They use an exotic mix of spiral-wound fibers impregnated with conductive material. It’s not to make things difficult, it’s to provide some resistance, just a modest amount to damp out any stray high-frequency current in the wire to keep it from making buzzes in the radio or making the onboard computers reboot every time you change gears.

Removed one by one and installed the new wires no problem. I am not an expert on wires but I figured if I was going to install Peppy Pulstar Plugs I had better give them the best wires for the job too! JBO

ThunderVolt Spark Plug Wires
1993 Chevy CK
| Posted by | (Indianapolis, IN)

I have a C1500 C/K 5.7L 1992 and I used these wires, to add extra horses to my truck. Well I did and if you have a C/K distributor make sure to remember where the original wires went into the distributor, don't put it in order from closest to closest. And so forth, well I did that totally spacing to put it in the exact way it come. But the wires are a little bigger than factors, and suppose to bring like extra 5 hp, well in my opinion it only does a horse and a pony for the hp, but it does work well, it starts my engine.

Another Awesome Taylor Cable Product
2008 Ford F-150
| Posted by | (Alexandria, VA)

Mice or some other living creatures decided to eat my plug wires. I was in a rush and bought another product that wasn't up to pair to Taylor. I have been using Taylor wires on my Corvette and have been very happy with the product as well as customer support. For your information, these wires are for my 6-cylinder truck.

2002 Grand Prix GT Spak Plug Wires

These cables definitely look great, an improvement over the stock ones for sure. Only downfall, I wish they were numbered 1-6 like the stock ones. But other than that, great wires, would definitely recommend. Easy to install, came with instructions and a grease pouch for easy future removal.

Can't Go Wrong!
| Posted by | (Blytheville, AR)

I bought the universal 6 cylinder 8.2mm set. My installation is on a '06 Caravan with the 3.3L. What a difference they made!!! I even tested the advertised resistance (40-50 ohms/ft) before installation, and they were basically spot on (give or take a few ohms here and there, which makes no difference!) The OEM wires from the parts store measured at 5k ohms plus, and that was on a much shorter OEM wire (about 2ft shorter!). As you know, the shorter the wire, the less resistance (ohms) it should have, and my OEM wires are not that old, they are actually still in spec...but still have high resistance which equates to more sluggish throttle response, and a less efficient burn, which decreases gas mileage. Did all this as a way of furthering my quest for better gas mileage, and it's working quite well, not to mention throttle response and acceleration are very much improved on my 3.3L, coupled with the custom cold air intake I made...! Anyway, thanks CARiD for a great product! Hopefully, this review will help others who are looking for better MPG's!

Great Wires for Any Application
2002 Chevy Camaro

These wires are extremely flexible and heat resistant. I noticed a mild improvement in throttle response as compared with my old set of Magnecor wires. Don't let them scare you away, the EMI suppression is more than adequate, and they are just a bit better than MSD wires in my opinion.
