351W Plug Wires..Opinions?

Hey guys im just doing the small upgrades on my bronco and just wondering the opinions of wires..
Should i go:
8MM
8.5MM
9MM
10MM

Im honestly not sure which would be best nor if i would have to upgrade the ignition module and cap/rotor. Would 10mm be an overkill or just right?
Thanks guys!

Hi, is this a hot rod / high performance engine or a stock engine? No need for monster wires on a stock engine. [my opinion]

Re: 351W Plug Wires..Opinions?

Then you will need a flow test to see if the carb isn't to small and it could be. As i said before to another poster building an engine. You don't just throw parts into it. you have to KNOW what will work with all your parts and if they work together to get optimum
performance. Exp. Putting in 10mm wires over 8mm wires will do NOTHING to improve
performance. They just want your money. Three angle valve job will do nothing to improve performance unless you are burning alcohal at the track at 1000 H.P. a waste of
money if you are running on the street. You are running a 351W. don't expect too much.
Cleveland yah. There is a hell of differance. A 351W is a 302 on steroids.
