Coil pack

Is getting a performance coil pack and new wires a worthy investment? Will I see any gains? Or should I not waste my money

I have a screamin' demon coil pack. No noticeable power gain but the idle and acceleration are smoother. Fuel economy is marginally better too. Be sure to open the gap on the plugs. Mine are opened to 0.065 as specified in the literature that came with the coil pack.

I read somewhere that you really don't feel power gains until you get at least a 10% bump. I'm sure that I have a minor gain, it just isn't enough to notice.

Agreed on the idling and acceleration. From what I've read, combined with the plugs, and wires, I SHOULD be getting a noticeable difference.

I'll let you know.

That's cool. I got new plugs also, but we'll see! I mean, people are saying its one of the best mods they've done, so there's definitely something there.

yep you'll never notice a performance gain from just a coil pack unless we are talking old 5.0 motors.

Haha I drive an auto and MAYBE the throttle response is better but it's not enough (if at all) for me to say it is. And I don't have a tune with it, that's the next step right now. Maybe that will help!

I'm sure the tune would help. But any gains you'd notice would be from the tune haha maybe with the coil pack, plugs and wires something could be noticed? Who knows. But a tune is definitely the next step. I gotta save up haha

with the coil pack you'll have a much faster engine start if you've done the battery relocation. this is why i'll get one too very soon

Yeah that's one thing I'm not 100% certain on. I'll have to ask them. What does that do exactly? The gap.

More spark equals a more complete burn and more power and efficiency.

For sure. Just be very careful threading the plugs back into the heads. It's very easy to screw up the threads on them.

to the trunk it's for weight distribution to get closer to the 50-50 ratio. also i added a switch on the way because for some unknown reason, my stang runs out of battery after not being used for a week.

Oh that's a cool idea! What replaces the battery in the front? Nothing?

well, you move the battery to the trunk and you wire the + back to the front and you add the - of the battery to the car ground it took me one day and it wasn't expensive at all and i did feel a change when i suddenly turn you can find some kits over the internet but you can also get the parts you need yourself and it is cheaper

still it's better if you get the parts yourself if you need some tips if you want to install it, you can ask me
