Exclamation Coils closer to Plugs?

i dont know anything about this, but im getting ready to do some remodeling in the engine bay and i was curious if any of you guys have moved your coils closer to the spark plugs persay mounted the coils on the side of the left strut tower, MY MAIN question is, CAN YOU SHORTEN THE SPARK PLUG WIRES??? or will it mess up timing or ressistance ect...?

Yes you can shorten them. No it won't effect anything. The shorter the better really.
