    I got plug wires! Yes it looks like spaghetti junction...I know! Messy as it looks, its what im running. The COP setup looks clean and poses less problems but im sort of pride stricken with the wires. This said.... what are my options for cleaning up the spaghetti mess? The car didnt come with the stock plug wire bridge over the alternator and I dont remember any of the seperation clips intact. Give me some ideas.

    If you don't find some soon, let me know. I'll nab you a few from the junkyard if I can find them the next time I go (Which Im due for a trip soon).

    I kind of feel the same way! I like the clean look of the COPS but I am old school and like the look of a nice wire setup.

    Plus I just hit Ford yesterday and snagged 4 COPS for my wife's Escape and those things are not cheap.

    Way back when I used billet ones, painted them to match the car then drilled a couple holes so I could mount the larger front ones to the alt bracket with small bolts

    Ever since seeing Paul post that many moons ago, I use zip ties, especially if I am not trying to make it stand out, just trying to keep neatly separated and tucked away.

    that is where I would start. You will probably find that getting them to line up nice neat and clean is harder then it sounds with over the counter brand wires. One is always too short, one too long... The only way I know to get them the perfect length like I did was to get a set that you cut to length and then put the end on. It not hard but the crimper/set normally makes them a little more $$$ then people want to pay for clean wiring. Like I said I HATE mess wiring.

    I found the Roush branded ones on Ebay & got a deal... better than the loose mess before!

    Dont know if youre still looking but as was said zip ties work well. One thing to watch, i dont know if ford had the same problem as dodge with wire interference. With the magnum motors the seperators are a must
