yeah they are wicked high stock. I use MSD wires( buy in bulk and make all my own wires, since turbo headers love them) and i go about 40 ohms a foot. any more than 100 a foot and i retire them.

MSD's 8.5mm Super Conductor wire sets have a special helically wound core that has just 40-50 ohms of resistance per foot--but with an RFI suppression equal to a 1,500 ohm wire. In fact, each foot of finished wire features 40 feet of tightly wound copper for superior conductivity. A tough 8.5mm synthetic/silicone jacket over an extra-heavy glass braid and dielectric insulator keeps the current guided to the plugs. Underneath the high-temperature boots, dual crimp stainless steel terminals feature snap-locks to ensure a secure fit. MSD's 8.5mm Super Conductor wire sets come available in custom or universal-fit applications.
I've been thinking about ordering a set.

Measured the factory set last night and they were all around 480 ohms. That seems high since my Jacobs wires were only 50 ohms.

OE wires always have high readings, from my experience. MSDs that I have had through the past have always been 38-40ohms/ft.

Crane's FireWire are actually 25ohm/ft - or so they claim. Never bought any yet.
