Hey guys, I’m new to this forum and I’m sure this has been asked before, but I’m posting hoping to get some insight on my issue.

I recently installed BBK equal length shorty headers on my 93’ fox. During reassembly, I noticed one of the spark plug boots touches the header tube.

I’m trying to decide if shorty spark plugs will fix my problem? Or spark plug wires with shorter boots? It’s hard to tell how much shorter the Accel Shorty Plugs are online. And when I put a 90 degree on the plug, it cleared but then sits at an awkward angle.

Has anyone else had this problem with BBK shorty headers? It’s the third plug back on the passenger side.

You can 'ding' the header tube a little with no ill effects, I would try the shory plug and the heat shield first though.

Get yourself a new set of Ford motorsports 9mm wires & wire separators and tiebacks.. problem solved. Try and angle boots upward (left or right) away from header --> then tieback in position possibly at dizzy. Its a lot of positioning.

On more than one occasion I've solved this problem by wedging a small piece of ceramic tile between the header tube and boot.
