Free Hint: Most guys replace plugs/wires when doing a regular opti tune-up when it's out and more room to fish the wires through the hole in the access. bracket. At 263k when's the last time you pulled maint. on the opti?
If your pump/tube is removed and using stock length wires, you should do something to secure the driver side wires so they don't flop around. Believe the pump tube has a bracket on it that supports the wires on that side.
This may help and give you some ideas and things to consider. I just made up a little bracket and mounted it to the Block to secure the driver side wires. Everything else is pretty much routed stock.
while these cars are not the most convenient cars to swap plug wires on, IMHO there is really no big deal
I encourage you to use all the stock clips & brackets to secure them
I do both sides from under the car. The PS I find it easier to remove the starter and PS tire. Use a screw driver through wheel well to unclip the wire hold downs. Fish the new wire from the front of the car/motor around block. There is a small bolt holding on the metal bracket for #6&8 if you want to remove it to install but I just pop the clip lose and run the new wires in the wire clip
The DS I just remove the bracket holding all 4 wires and re-assemble on bench and feed wires around front of block using the stock 4 wire clip to hold them
If putting on new split loom, use grey stripe. You can order it online for around $15 for 100'. The plastic crap sold at auto part stores will instantly melt. Grey stripe is heat resistant
Wassup, it’s been a long time since I last posted on this site. I think the last time I posted here I was selling my first car (96 DCM) lolol.
Anyways, im looking to get some work done to my SS (94 BBB) and I wanted to see if anybody could recommend some shops in the DMV area.
Hey Fellas -
Wanted to check with you to see/find out if anyone out there is running an alternate coolant reservoir/tank? I'm in the middle of putting my LS engine back together and since I'm using a different bracket for the A/C, now my coolant tank is touching the a/c compressor.

So it's time to do some things to my car that are outside my wheelhouse. So I'm looking for a shop in the DFW area that is familiar with the B body cars and/or specializes in them, or has a mechanic that owns like 10 and knows all about the 91 to 96 cars. If you know a shop like...
Can someone post a clear photo of the bracket opening that the passenger side ignition wires go through? I've read a lot about what a pain in the butt this is to do but haven't found any clear photos or videos. Is there a wire holder in the opening? On my car, that area is dirty with built-up...
So, I keep getting the P1441 code pop up. It's been doing it on and off for 10 years, but strangely enough it's always gone away when I need to get my car inspected. This year I decided to actually tackle the issue. I replaced the lines from the intake to the switch on above thw fuel rail...
