Default Need a harness recommendation

I will be installing a Surefly e mag in my RV10 with an IO540. I currently have Bendix mags so I need to replace the one harness to accommodate the Surefly. Any good sources where I can order a single harness and is there a specific harness I need to order (Other than just a generic 6 cylinder Slick harness), i.e. a specific Parts number I need? ThanksÖ.

I am planning on using a G3i Ignition harness with my SureFly ignition system.

So here is a question auto plugs vs aviation. I’m running Tempest fine wire plugs. Since I need a new harness I have also looked at getting an auto plug harness for the Surefly by G3i. I’m running an io540 in my RV 10. I have been told that the auto plugs are not durable compared to aviation plugs, which are beefy. Also an auto plug set up does not do well at higher altitudes i.e. 10k-14k. I’m on the fence if I should stay with the fine wires or switch to auto. And thanks for the info on Maggie harness.

Suggest Denso 5003 M22 plugs and G3i harness. Make sure you use red loctite on the end threads and not get any loctite on the shoulder for good contact. I just ordered a replacement fine wire plug for a customer who dropped one which cracked the resistor. $160 for one fine wire plug with tax and shipping. Crazy!

Got an e mail in to G3i, there is no phone number. Is there anywhere else to go for a slick cap with an auto plug set up ?
