They're junk dont waste your time, but if you must have them these are the 90* boot ones 32799. If your on summit its msd-32799. These wires are junk though the stock delco wires are much better.

the msd wires are not junk, the stock ignition coils are best, but as for wires, there is nothing wrong with msd wires. I sell quite a few sets of them and guys always like them. Sometimes on dyno's guys can't get a tach reading from the larger wires but that doesn't affect how the car performs at all.

Just WHATEVER you do, don't get CarQuest wires. Those things ARE junk!

i actually prefer straight boots, then just convert two of the wires to 90*. That was best fit on my 00 3.8 with pacesetters. The 90* dont sit well on cyl 1 and 3 i think (the front plugs on DS and PS)

The MSD wires I had were junk, I had them on my camaro for 2 months before they dryrotted away and started arching.

Mine keep burning on the passenger side where they go around the egr manifold.

3.4s are famous for that. You have to put conduit around them, and keep an eye on it. It will REEK if it's burning, but you'll know it, so you catch it before it gets the wire.
