Re: coil pack

Why do you think you need to change the coil pack? The stock coil pack is fine, and the others don't really do much.

And don't believe the sales hype. A coil pack is not going to give you 18 hp.

Re: coil pack

I went 170,000 on the stock coil pack with the supercharger on it from 90,000 miles. I swapped to a stock coil pack I had in the garage when it seemed to be acting up (a friend blew up his car on the dyno pushing 25 lbs of boost so we scavenged parts that I might need some day off his 4.0 when he put the V8 in). I sold the car with 203,000 miles on it and the second coil pack - no problems at all.

The plug wires may need replacing. How many miles do you have on yours? They will give out long before the coil pack

Re: coil pack

Not likely any problem with the coil pack then. The wires could be ready for replacement. The plugs are supposed to last 100,000 miles. I swapped them more often, but that was because I was running nitrous on the car for two years and then the supercharger. The plugs were only $2 each (no need for the expensive plugs by the way when you get ready, the stock plugs are fine, even with an engine on forced induction). With the forced induction I wanted to check the plugs each spring, and since I had them out already and they were so cheap it was just as easy to swap in new plugs. But the plugs I pulled with about 30,000 hard miles on them (daily driving and weekend racing) were good enough that I could have gone another 30,000 on them easily.

I bought the sreamin demon ,with street thunder wires and iradium plugs, aftermarket is always better than stock, the coil puts out 40.000 volts, it helps with quicker starts, it helps burn the fuel more efficently, but unless u have a tuner i wouldnt get one, also i noticed that if u have dual exhaust, it helps to take away that tinny sound u get at the higher rpms, im glad i got one, but no ur not gonna get 18 more hp out of it
