Stock coil packs are more than adequate, very reliable, and cheaper. Save your money and put it towards something like gears, the 4v motors scream for 4.10s or numerically higher rear gears.

not really cheaper.... scp has them for just under 100 for the pair and stock replacements at autozone are only a few dollars less.

Per RobertP do not gap them to .065 . Done the same with mine and it had a misfire at WOT. I think that Robert said to gap them at.051-.052 . did that and it ran much better :)

well from a business perspective, its a great line to use....there are just so many clueless people out there who can't do any research that they just buy into it and end up spending money needlessly because subconsciously they think that anything costing them a good amount of money has to be worth something

well being as how the stock coil packs are nearing 100k i figure its time to replace before they go out and i've heard that the best aftermarket coilpacks were scremin demon, that msd was junk for our cars. these where only a few dollars more than stock replacements. i did not nessessarily purchase these for performance gain as i know if any gain is acheived it won't be much, i more bought these because its time for new ones.

My original coil packs have been on two motors, have 165k miles on them, and are still going strong. The factory units are very reliable, I'm sure there are people out there with many more miles on theirs than mine. However, I'm not saying your coil packs will not fail.
