Time for a tune up

So, it’s come time for my cars tune up. I am planning on convincing the wife that I need to get the MSD Coil for my car, but if it’s not going to last a while and I'd have to replace it come tune up time next year, so my question is, is the power gain worth it and how long has it lasted for you guys/gals.

Also I want to try to convince her for the 8.5mm wires as well. But again, if it’s not going to last me a while and they too would have to be replaced, then I can't justify paying the extra $50 over the regular stock wires.

Finally, About a year ago I blew a spark plug out of the head, I didn't have the money to buy a new head so the mechanic just tapped out the hole and put a helicoil in it so we could still use the head, then he proceeded to tell me that I should never have to remove it again and that if I did I could risk it blowing out again and there goes the head. So the question is, has anyone else had this happened, I really can’t afford to buy a new head, and I'm sure that’s something that you'd have to replace both sides at a time anyway, and I damn sure can’t afford for someone to do it, so what is the risk if I actually change my plugs because I know I need it.

Project pony recently upgraded to the MSD coilpack. He says great things about it. He switched from a brand new stock one too.

I have the wires on my car but I'm not sure about the power gain because it came like that. I'm pretty sure they last the same if not longer

I am very happy with my MSD Coil pack. I replaced a brand new motorcraft one with it. Throttle response is better, idle is smoother, seems to have more pep, and I've gained a couple miles per gallon on the last couple tanks. According to my records I've gone up 3.2mpg.
