Question about spark plug wires

I barely failed my emissions test in CT last week 13ppm of HC at idle 
(passes everything else with flying colors).  The mechanic asked me when 
the last tune-up the car had was, and suggested that all it may need are 
new plugs and wires.  I ordered the Bosch F5DP0R plugs and the Bosch 
09268 wires that Autohaus Az listed for the 3B engine.  When I went to 
install the wires, they were noticeably shorter than the wires that I 
was removing.  I didn't have time to test fit the new wires, so I threw 
the old wires back on for the time being.  Will I have a problem with 
these wires?  Did I get the wrong wires?  Should I return them and order 
a different set from a different place?  Any help would be greatly 
appreciated.  Thanks.
