I wrapped mine to try and prevent some of the cross firing that can occur, even with silicone leads. The wrap just seperates the leads a little.


Once you have removed it, leave it off. get some spirawrap and wrap each lead seperately then tywrap them together. This way your leads don't get shagged by the oem shroud and you can easily swap plugs.

(even the group A teams realised the shroud was crap and didn't use them)


Is there a simple way to install new spark plugs without removing the ignition wire tube? What is the best procedure for what should be a simple spark plug replacement?


I agree with roops, leave it out So next time you Change your plugs it would be easier, you probably do not need the spiral wrap as the plug wire are made of silicon.It should be able to handle the heat,allthough It would look neat with the wrap.If you elect to do it with the wrap make sure that you get the right kind you could risk an engine fire.
