Re: coil pack

I've heard good things about Accel, as well as MSD. The question is, does it really improve spark intensity and produce more energy?

My guess would be yes, but not $108 worth (American Muscle's price)...maybe $59.99 worth though...that's my .02. Maybe someone who has one will chime in.

Re: coil pack

Had one on my old fox 5.0 & on the stock engine it made the throttle response a little better. That was with the accel coil, wires & plugs. Should do about the same on the sixer, but don't know for sure. I just bought a stock replacement for mine for $75.00

Re: coil pack

what would be the best coil pack to get, and would the install be something that is an easy do it yourself, or would it be something to take to a shop?

Re: coil pack

Not trying to be mean, but if you cant change a coil pack on a v6 mustang you shouldn't be around anything other than a econobox. That being said its about as hard as peeling a banana, 4 bolts and a clip. As for performance, unless you have a decent bit of mods and you're buying it to open up the gap, or your stock coil is on its last leg, and you upgrade the stock coil and wires you'll get "like new" performance but no real gains. Also performance distributors (the people who make the SD coil) A+ on customer service. I've been through 4 of these things (they have a tendency to go bad for some reason) and not once have they hesitated to send me a replacement.

Re: coil pack

what size does the 04 v6 for the spark plugs and wires? and the reason i didnt know about the coil pack is because i havent had to work on it before. and if i were to change the plugs and wires, what size should i get to get the best upgrade from it.

Re: coil pack

stock plug wires are 8 mm (millimeters) and i believe the stock gap on the motorcraft plugs are .54, whereas my autolites are gapped to .65 since i have the screamin demon coil pack, as well as some other mods. if you upgrade your wires most of them will be 8.5 mm.

Re: coil pack

I have the Accel Super EDIS Coil Pack and it was a definite upgrade from the stock one. I use mine with MSD 8.5mm Super Conductor Wires and Bosch Platinum +4 Plugs. I can really feel the increased throttle response and power, It especially helps at high altitude. I live in Colorado, and I drive my stang from Denver to Vail often, you can really feel the difference when passing uphill on the mountain passes. If you're going to do the coil pack you should go with the plugs and wires too. I chose the Bosch Platinum +4 because your gap will change a little with the increased juice from the coil pack and you don't have to gap the +4's.

Re: coil pack

i know this will sound crazy but is it possible to use 2 coils in the v6. that way the spark on the exaust stroke is eliminated, thus in return prviding additional spark power on the power stroke. i know thats crazy but i was drivin for a while and i think crazy $h% when i go on long trips.

Re: coil pack

I support the screamin demon coil pacs. U get better gas mileage and more torque at lower revs. Also u get to increase ur spark gap to .65 which is a LOT more than stock!!

Spark on the exhaust stroke?!?!?! Maybe I missed something when I was learning about engines one day?

Anyway to anybody else you may be feeling some increased acceleration from the coil but you're not gaining anything. At best your getting lost performance back from changing the plugs. And bosh platinum plugs are crap.
