Now im running on 7 cyl and ran a 8.7 in the 1/8th. this is really starting to suck. The exhaust is so hot, it is burning up the plug wire almost immediately. I wrapped the exhaust and put boots over the wires. I don't know what else to do. any ideas on getting the exhaust temp down?
What ECT's are you seeing, and have the EGT's been measured?

When you say "boots", are you refereing to plug wire sleeves(Nomex)?

If so, and you're still burning wires, then try re-routing them?

Sounds like EGT's are off the chart.
