Question for all you power gurus

I am looking at this package ’05-’08 Mustang GT Parts and Accessories at RPM OUTLET.com - Free Shipping! (the E package).
Since this is my first mustang:
Are these coils better than the stock ones?
Is the power they claim to get out of this realistic?
Is it worth the investment?

Thanks
Helmut

the coils are nice but not needed near stock. Do other much better mods first.

Re: Question for all you power gurus

Thanks for the heads up on RPM. I guess I'll start slow (intake & tuner) and go from there. Now where is the x-mas bonus??????

Re: Question for all you power gurus

exhaust is a must even though on 05s it doesnt make nearly as much difference in sound or performance as the older mustangs. Since you have that intake/tune and maybe a pulley while you are at it would be next. I would get it dyno tuned though and you will pick up a bit more power (from a GOOD tuner not just anyone).

most 05+ gts dyno around 250/270 stock~

Re: Question for all you power gurus

You guys taking about X-pipe etc. on the exhaust? I already have the Magnaflow axle-back's. I live in the nanny state (NJ) and have keep that thing somewhat leagle.
Besides, my kid has the SLP Loudmouth with no cats on his 02 GT and that's too loud and did not give him that much more umph.
