Enjoy the benefits of high energy ignition while keeping your Corvette’s underhood “all-original”! All Ignitor Electronic Ignition Conversion Kit components fit inside the distributor cap for a truly stealth install.The Ignitor Conversion Kit replaces your stock points and condenser with a solid state electronic module, using a stock or high output points type coil. You’ll enjoy quick starts, better fuel economy, longer plug life and more horsepower.
The Ignitor II Conversion Kit senses current levels in the coil and adjusts the dwell to maintain peak energy throughout the entire RPM range. Dwell time is increased or decreased with changing engine RPM and operating conditions. This provides more energy at high RPM, reducing misfires while improving engine performance.
The Ignitor III Electronic Ignition delivers “box ignition” performance – without the box! This kit delivers 5 times more spark energy than points, plus a user-set rev limiter.
All kits are compatible with stock coil. For more juice, add a Corvette Flame Thrower Ignition Coil and matching spark plug wires. The epoxy filled coil generates 40,000 volts of pure power and the silicone-jacketed wire sets feature rubber inner insulation for superior heat resistance. No cutting, splicing or scrimping needed with these wires.
What are you waiting for? Set your C1, C2 or C3 Corvette ignition on fire!
If you are tired of burnt spark plug wires due to your Corvette’s Headers? These Hi-Performance C5 & C6 Corvette Spark Plug Wires are built to Zip Corvette’s standards, which means they are built specifically for Corvettes and with the required heat protection for long tube headers.
Zip’s Corvette spark plug wire sets begin with a heat shielded Magnacor wire. Magnecor’s exclusive 2.5mm high capacity Metallic Inductance EMI Suppressed conductor consists of a stainless steel wire precisely wound at 200 turns per inch over a ferromagnetic core. The insulating jacket is made entirely of Magnecor’s exclusive TC-1500-HS high strength aerospace grade silicone rubber, and its single layer construction will prolong the jacket’s insulating ability by conducting extreme heat away from hot-spots that occur near over-the-limit heat sources.
The protection provided from the heat shield guarantees that this will be the last set of spark plug wires you will ever have to replace from header burn. The KV85 8.5mm jacket has a service heat resistance of 600 degrees F (320 degrees C) and up to 1,000 degrees F (540 degrees C) for a short burst of 3 minutes. The R-100 10mm jacket has a service heat resistance of 700 degrees F (380 degrees C) and up to 1,200 degrees F (650 degrees C) for a short burst of 3 minutes. Even if limits are exceeded, the silicone rubber will retain its insulating ability until wires are removed from engine.
Magnecor wires are primarily designed and constructed to be used in applications where it is essential to prevent the possibility of ignition wires compromising engine performance. Modern race engines, modified street engines and stock street engines which rely on electronic devices to control the function of either or both the Corvette ignition and fuel systems are prone to interference from all other spiral conductor ignition wires sold through performance parts outlets, none of which can provide proper suppression for EMI, particularly if a high-output ignition system is used.
Zip Corvette always recommends use of these performance spark plug wires on any stock or modified late model Corvette engine that is electronically managed however most other modified or street engines can also use our performance spark plug wires to improve ignition performance. Fits all 1997-2011 Corvettes with or without headers.
Both the red and blue sets of these Shielded Corvette Spark Plug Wires fit all C5 and C6 Corvettes. These wires are also a great ignition upgrade for your 2009-2011 C6 ZR1 Corvette.
On occasion, your Corvette might misfire, crossfire or experience a poor start-up. These effects are often assumed to be a result of an ignition grounding problem, a bad set of spark plug wires or spark plugs. Though any of the mentioned Corvette Parts could be bad, one major reason a Corvette experiences the above side effects is a direct result of installing a generic or current GM distributor rotor with a short copper tip. The gap left when installing a distributor rotor with a short tip can very quickly lead to poor start ups and weak spark conditions.
Our 1957-1974 Corvette 1×4 Distributor Rotor are designed to replace the generic rotors often found in point style Corvette Distributors. The biggest performance difference in the generic or current GM rotor and the new reproduction rotor is the length of the small copper tip. The length increase will help eliminate poor starts, fouled spark plugs, or weakened coils that are often associated with 1957-1974 Corvettes.
If you have noticed your C5 Corvette has lost a step it may be time to install a new set of C5 Corvette Spark Plug Wires. We offer a few different styles including AC Delco spark plug wires, MSD spark plug wires, our very own hi-performance shielded spark plug wires, and our high quality Delphi spark plug wires. You cannot go wrong with any of these choices but we would like to talk about the benefits of installing a new set of Delphi wires on your C5 Corvette.
The Delphi wires are designed to install directly on any 1997-2004 C5 (LS1) or C5 Z06 (LS6) Corvette. These factory style wires are the best reproduction wires available when it comes to authentic OEM looks, fit and performance. All C5 Corvette Delphi Spark Plug Wire Sets include factory style aluminum heat shields and springs.
If you are asking, “What are the best spark plug wires for my Corvette?” then you just need to know the difference of each style/brand…
Our Delphi Spark Plug Wires are highly recommended to those who would like to keep their Corvette as close to stock as possible. They will look and perform just as the spark plug wires did when the car left the factory. Our AC Delco Spark Plug Wires would be used for the same reason but do not include the aluminum heat shields. The trusted name of AC Delco is often enough for many Corvette enthusiasts to choose their brand. Another option would be to install a set of performance oriented MSD or our Hi-Performance shielded spark plug wires. MSD Spark Plug Wires are available in multiple colors and include several enhancements that a stock spark plug wire would not. These enhancements are designed to provide low resistance without allowing electronic interference. Our very own Shielded Spark Plug Wires are perfect for C5 Corvettes that have aftermarket headers installed. The added protection from the additional heat generated from Kooks Headers or another popular exhaust brand, plus the performance gains they provide make our hi-performance spark plug wires the way to go if heat protection and more performance is what you are looking to gain out of a new set of wires.
Our original equipment spark plug wires come from Packard Industries, who was the original manufacturer of factory spark plug wires used on 1957-1982 Corvettes. Packard Industries uses the original tooling to produce these spark plug wires and each set includes the correct Packard Delcore II wire, which uses a special Kevlar silicone wrapped construction to prevent breaks and cracks in the conductor. The boots of the 1957-1974 Corvette Spark Plug Wires are made of the correct material, to the original thickness, and include stainless steel terminals. These are not generic sets of spark plug wires; each set includes correct length wires for an easy, clean factory installation and is 100% Made in USA. There is no higher quality spark plug wire available for 1957-1982 Corvettes. Not only are they the best on the market but they can be purchased at a fraction of the cost of a new spark plug wire set from GM.
