Wrench Rat Spark Arms... anyone tried these?

they look like they might fit on a 5.0 even with equal length shorties. has anyone tried these or have any input. i saw these on theturboforums. they are supposed to keep your wires away from header heat and extend plug wire life. i cant find any info about these other than on the website, i thought someone on here might have some experience with them or at the very lease some useful input.

they say it will fit virtually anything, though im not that familiar with the incon manifolds. at first i didnt see how, but they have a 360* adjustable neck, and the mount of course can be rotated on the spark plug. ive got mac equal lengths and im gonna take a real good look at them before i order if i decide to try them out. if i think they will fit my headers ill get them and write a review.

well i got the spark arms in the mail and installed on the car. im making a set of custom wires for them while i finish up the fuel system and wiring on my 5.0 and then i can give a driving impression of them. they clear mac equal length headers, so i know they will clear any other 5.0 header, as mine are the tightest fitting ive found. i ohmed them out and there is minimal resistance... about .3 ohms which is neglible when you look at the 40-50 ohms per wire on a good set of msd wires. i ohmed some fms wires and they were in the 1000s and 2000s. i couldnt believe it. these raise the wire connection point about 1.5-2" (or more if you adjust them differently). that is well away from header heat and probably a better, though more expensive, option opposed to running them under the headers. changing plugs isnt anymore complicated, they go on and come off easy. i will bring more reviews when i drive the car soon. i have several pics for anyone interested.
