    I haven't dyno'd since I installed them but I will tell you this; The throttle response is Great and the fuel economy while street racing and at the track is Unreal!! I ran all night on less than a 1/4 tank. Believe that.

    They are really expensive. I would have to see some good dyno number's or something of that nature to see if they are worth it.

WELL guys there ON hold right now, because the wife made the mistake yesterday of making me choose between her or my baby{SS} and now that I sold that forged Ls2 and D1SC, I finally got enough $ to roll and start over fresh with a chick that digs rides period,Right from the get go, that i dont have to try to convert.Somtimes that pussy just blinds you to the truth,ya know? I told my wife the other day, when she was snapping about all the time i spend on these sites and my ride.I looked her straight in her BLACK EYE LOL and told her,I know why guys TURN gay LOL And for you lucky basterds who's chicks dig your ride,You get 2 thumbs up from me guys

    On a mostly stock car...the stock wires are perfectly fine.

    So little distance to worry about...

    Stock wires are fine unless they're really spanked. The MSD coils haven't showed any dyno gain that I've seen on the boards...
