you can end up blowing your distributor since the wires may not be the correct resistance...its like putting a 25amp fuse in for a 15amp...sure it will work but you risk frying your wiring

I would use the correct length wire for specific engine, even though the plugs are interchangeable.

i understand what you guys are saying but i had to rebuild my B16 dizzy and all i did was buy a used D16a6 dizzy and swap all the guts for it into the B16a1 case.......i've had it on the car for like 4 months

so isnt it the same power if its an si dizzy inside the B16 case so whats the need for a set of B series wires
