Default Maximum length of spark plug wire 8,5mm

To use the coil MSD 8202 has a maximum length of spark plug wire to be no voltage drop?
I will go use MSD 8,5mm Super Conductor Spark Plug wire ( PN #31939 in VW bug and distributor #8485). I think use more or less 1,5meter of spark plug wire ( for connecting the distributor and the coil), have problem?
I know that the cable has some resistance, and the farther the distributor he can lose tension....

i personally would not go pass 3 feet ...butm some of our pro-mod racers have used 4 to 5 feet...what you have to keep in mind is...that coil wire gets hit 4 times as much versus the cylinder wires on a vw....
