Help with coil

Hey everyone, so today I got a screaming demon could and Taylor wires, I installed them on my car and it's running like crap.. Misfiring a lot, I drove around to see if the car's computer needed to learn something but still misfiring, when I'm I'm a steady speed it's fine but accelerating and idle it's bad... Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

well screamin deamon coils are commonly known for being junk at least for 94-04 models...wouldn't surprise me if they are for s197s as well.

I read reviews about it and I heard good and bad things, but I wanted to try it and see if it works or not, well i guess it doesn't ..( I know dumb idea) But I'm sure it's something wrong with the coil, Am might be able to help me out ( I hope)

I've had a Screaming' Demon coil for over a year now. No problems. I've put around 20K miles on it. I kept (and still have) the stock coil just in case.
I guess that I'm one of lucky ones. I had read many good reviews and very few bad ones. Did you use the provided dielectric grease before putting the wires on the coil pack?

That's good to hear! Yes I used the grease, I just swapped out the SD and put the stock back and I'm waiting for an email from AM.

So I put all the stock coil and wires back and it's still bad.. Now I just had a new fuel pump put in, could it be it? Fuel pressure?

I wouldn't think so. Are you sure you got the wires properly seated and in the right order? The firing order isn't a straight 1 through 6. I think it's more like 1,2,3,4,6,5. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong.

Goes on the metal. It keeps the two surfaces from welding together and from corrosion

It should run even if you didn't put the dielectric grease on the metal part
