If it were me, I'd look more closely at the suppressors than the wires. I've seen a lot more bad suppressors than wires. As a tech I don't normally check the actual resistance of these components unless the symptom/complaint warrants it, so I can't say what the acceptable range is. What I do know however, is that if there is a problem with wires/suppressors, you'll have a definite engine performance problem. Usually, you'll have a dead miss on acceleration or an intermittent miss at idle. The symptoms are unmistakable. It's completely different than a fuel injection problem, for the most part. If you find that you have a bad suppressor or wire, check the cap and rotor as well(I'm sure you will). The higher voltage needed to overcome the increased resistance can damage these parts as well. Keep us posted.
