Default Are Volvo/Bougicord wires the suppression type?

Are the black wire, blue plug Bougicord spark plug wires used on Volvos a suppression type or not? The reason I ask is because I was going to drop in some non-resistor plugs, but then I wasn't sure it was a good idea unless the wires are a suppression type.

Default I believe so.

To my knowledge they are suppression type wires. If they are the Bougicords with the rubber ends on the plug boots they are made to be used with resistor plugs. The older metal style connector is a resistor connector and you don't need resistor plugs for them but they will work OK if you do.

My wires are the type with the rubber plug boots. I guess that would mean that I need to put some resistor type plugs in there instead.
