      Just recently I ve been having issues with hot restarts and ignition issues when running for more than 15, 20 mins.

      The car just started acting up on my way home and was miss firing and reading slightly lean 15-16. Sounds like ignition break down but the lean has got me (have yet to check the injector resistances)

      Turned the car off in the driveway and ran inside to grab a spray bottle. Started it up and suprisingly it was running fine again. I sprayed the wires and coils regardless. Suprise suprise my wires are leaking voltage around my msd coils and metal valve cover on the front bank of cylinders.

      Now the troubling part, These wires are maybe 10000-15000kms at most. They are the fourseason tuning wires (figured they would have been quality)

      Is there anything I can do to cover the wires to better prevent the voltage leaking? I figure I'll dielectric grease the boot ends at the coil pack to help their but as for the wires.....?
