spark plug wire

today i was driving home from wal mart. and my number one spark plug wire was poped out of place. i pulled over and pushed back in place. once i got home i check to see if the plug was torqued and it was. so im guessing i dont have an air leak that is pushing the wire up. i put my stock wire on the number one plug. and i dont get the problem. so is it a bad wire? (its a msd 8.5m wire) is there really an advantage to aftermarket wires or stock ones work just fine?

At higher boost levels the stockers will probably fail. But until the point at which you put a real demand on the ignition system the stockers should be fine.

I would have to guess that you had a bad wire if the stocker stays on fine.
You could take a screw driver and try to tighten up the connector on the inside of the wire. It could have just opened up over time and needs to be closed to keep a grip on the spark plug. Its pretty deep in there though. It could be a bitch to tighten.
