GMC W-Series 6.0L 2006, KV85 Competition 8.5 mm Spark Plug Wire Set by Magnecor®. 10 - year warranty. Originally designed for racing and high-performance engines using high-output and racing ignitions, turbocharging and supercharging. Entire jacket made from aerospace extreme heat-resistant silicone rubber. Exclusive Magnecor 2.5mm Metallic Inductance Suppressed Conductor will suppress EMI indefinitely, allowing this cable to be used with any ignition system on road and water vehicles, as well as stationary engines using CNG and LPG gas. Can be fitted into most original cable holders. Extensively used for extra long runs to remote high-voltage igniters when heat resistance and EMI suppression is important.

Magnecor's KV85 Competition (8.5mm)feature Magnecor's exclusive 2.5mm high capacity Metallic Inductance EMI Suppressed conductor consisting of stainless steel wire precisely wound at 200 turns per inch over an insulated ferromagnetic core. The insulating jacket is made entirely of Magnecor's exclusive TC-1500-HS high strength aerospace grade silicone rubber, and its single layer construction will prolong the jacket's insulating ability by conducting extreme heat away from hot-spots that occur near over-the-limit heat sources. Some people have remarked that the cable jacket feels "soft" however, this is the nature of the particular silicone rubber used. It does help when these 8.5mm cables are fitted to 7mm OE cable retainer/dividers, as the cable is less likely to cause breakage.
The KV85 8.5mm jacket has a service heat resistance of 600 degrees F (320 degrees C) and up to 1,000 degrees F (540 degrees C) for short burst 3 minutes. Even if limits are exceeded, the silicone rubber will retain its insulating ability until wires are removed from engine.
Magnecor Race Wires are primarily designed and constructed to be used in applications where it is essential to prevent the possibility of ignition wires compromising engine performance. Modern race engines, modified street engines, overheating prone LPG conversions and stock street engines which rely on electronic devices to control the function of either or both the ignition and fuel systems are prone to interference from all other spiral conductor ignition wires sold through performance parts outlets, none of which can provide proper suppression for EMI, particularly if a high-output ignition system is used.
Magnecor ignition cables were originally designed for automotive applications. However, over many years, supplying ever-increasing amounts of ignition cables and parts to other industries. Magnecor has not promoted its ignition cables to other industries, therefore company can only assume ignition cables have been discovered by engineers searching for EMI suppressed high-grade heat resistant ignition cable that is not available elsewhere.
Magnecor® is a manufacturer of technically advanced ignition wires, spark plug wires, ignition leads, and high tension leads. Magnecor's head office and factory are situated in Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA. Thanks to its commitment to quality and attention to detail, the brand has earned a reputation for excellence in the industry. This has led to thousands of satisfied customers that rely on the brand to help them get the most out of their vehicle. Magnecor assembles its own lead sets in-house, therefore it can offer attention to detail for its home markets. The brand also offers a great range of superior quality and reliable custom/tailor-made sets for the Motor Racing, Competition and Road going markets. Whatever the application - motorsport, performance, family motoring, marine or aviation, your engine's performance will always benefit from a set of Magnecor ignition leads.
