I've never had an issue with Eagle leads. When I order for LPG cars I actually ask for Eagles.
Bosch are ok, I wouldn't touch Topgun.

If they're carbon core, the resistance of a good lead is anywhere up to 15K. Only solid core or spiral wound leads will test OK on a low range like 2K.

By the sounds of it you have maxed out the stock ignition system.. I reckon you will need to fit a magneto system as run by Pro Stock vehicles running gas.
If you want to pick up one on the cheap try www.racingjunk.com

Agree with comments about top gun leads. I was a sucker years ago and bought a set that just fell apart. Then I bought a set of eagle leads and they fell apart around the plug boot. Very p****d off for the same reason Hans, just money down the drain.
So I bought a set of ICE 9mm leads over 4 years ago, with the 90° boots and kevlar sleeves for the GT40P heads and they have been operating 100% perfect since purchase.

had the same problem,pull the plug boot and strip my clothes off,my supplier carries them,so get another set to fix it.4 sets later you may get 1 set.my ice arrived today and i just made a set up,changed Ho's yesterday,raining all day,so we will see.THE resistance is very low,as said before,wack the core.

Are you 100% sure that your problems are purely ignition related. After talking to a few people with E Series V8's. They reported the same issues you are having after their hego's died.

Surely you haven't been dudded with that many ignition leads. Something just doesn't add up. Either you are buying complete crap or second hand without realising. Sure you haven't got the Bossch or eagly chinese rip off's (be very wary of the spelling)? I know you love to harp on about getting stuff for dirt cheap but you can't be a tight a*** when it comes to this sort of stuff.

Something is definitely a miss here.
