Ok so I know it sounds stupid to have a question for a simple wire install but here goes: As far as the metal heat shield that slips over the rear plug wires, do you guys keep these?? It seems like the wire for cylinder #6 does not like to stay on well when I try to install them with the heat shield on.

It's kinda preference I think. You don't need them

I use the shields since the headers get real hot. Even found 3 extra shields to use on the front plugs.

Don't understand why it would only affect wire #6, unless there's something wrong with that wire. The shields and the plug holes are are all the same.

Well what it looks like is happening to me is that the spring that is on the shield does not allow the wire boot to go on far enough for it to get properly seated on the plug. I'll just roll without'm

Try stretching the spring with a pair of pliers. Can't hurt.
