Coil Packs for 2000 V6

Car has just under 114k on it, probably the original coil packs. Just curious as to if these are worth the money, Theres a Screamin Demon coil pack for like $90 on AM, and my car feels like it has a tough time starting up early in the morning. Do you guys think this coil pack may resolve the issue, or at least help it a bit? Anyone who has used or has experience with them? Also if you guys have any suggestions on different brands, and where i might get them, that'd be appreciated too.

I just installed my screamin demon coil pack 2 weeks ago. 2000 v6. 105k miles. It idles rough and starts hard in the morning. After the install it idles smooth and it starts quicker now. That's my experience.

So worth the $90? Mines alright at idle, not too bad, but i'm really interested in the start, mine sort of starts, then it seems to slowly start firing. Was it a real noticeable difference in the start?

From what I've read our stock coils have been known to fail so I would bet good money that your switch would be immediately noticed. That being said the screamin demon isn't the only aftermarket for our cars. MSD makes a street/strip coil that actually puts out more volts than the screamin demon for around $85. Only prob right now is theyre on back order. I ordered the MSD coil like two weeks ago and they said it won't ship till the 20th

I was kinda thinkin' along those lines. 114k is quite a few miles on a part. Where can i look at that pack you're talking about? Have a website i can check it out on?

Kingmidas is correct, alot of them says that the msd is throwing more power and it's a good coilpack compared to scmn dmon, I think AM carries them now. I bought mine for 75 includes cpon code they sent me, it's the cheapest one compared to accel when they dont hve the msd yet. It's worth it!

Yeah i didn't even notice the MSD coils, right next to the screamin demon. I must be blind lol. But the review says MSD puts out 48,000 volts compared to Screamin' demon's 45,000 i believe. It's the same price so i think i'll look into MSD coils a little more.

I herd they won't do much for a stock engine, but do help once you start modding

I decided to go with the MSD coil packs, says they're called "Street Fire" or something. So we shall see if it was worth the money. Not expecting 500 added Hp, just want it to run a bit better. Lol

Alright, took me awhile to find some time, but had my dad show me how to install it.Haven't had a chance to start it after having it sit overnight, BUT i feel already that it does infact start up a bit easier, and the idle has significantly improved. No more slight vibration. So that is my first impression of this product. Price could be a little better, but it does seem to really help the car. But i think i might have a slight miss, it had started doing it prior to installation, but i'm going to check into it.

Re: Coil Packs for 2000 V6

if you upgrade your coil pack make sure you upgrade you wires. I ran the MSD coil pack with MSD wires. the car felt great. I have ran MSD on all my cars.

Thanks for the tip, i didn't think about that. I'll probably upgrade them in the future, but unfortunately i put new ones on less than 3,000 miles ago lol. Next time i'm definitely going msd.
