My FMS wires didn't last very long either. The boots stick out too far and my down pipe eventually got them. Even with DEI sleeves on them and the down pipe wrapped. I'm using Taylor Spiro Pro's now. The much shorter boots make the wires hug the block better. Still using DEI sleeves as well.

I have morose ultra 40's sleeved with the heat sleeves on the boots also.

I did not have a good experience with the straight MSD's, they are a pain to get snapped on.

I went with accel ceramic boot plugs. Love them so far. The ceramic boot also helps with routing.
