    Do you have a good block to frame to body ground (4ga minimum)?

    Yeah, I've added like 4 extra ones too, a couple braided cables and a couple stranded, both from the intake and from the block

    HA! HA! I'm a damn genius lol! It's not caused by any wiring issue, it's induced voltage by proximity to ignition sources, probably because my old plugs weren't resistor plugs and the new one are I'm guessing? I wrapped my radio in aluminum foil and it sounds great. I'm gonna look into remote mounting my coil I guess. Thanks for the responses!!

    I tried...
    Where is your coil?
    Don't wrap the radio; it has an amplifier and needs to breathe.

    It all sounds so strange. I've never had ignition noise from an HEI.
