    Pencil Coil Packs

    Anyone have any good or bad luck with them? How about relocating the coils to go under an earlier model application. Any do's, don'ts? Suggestions?

    for most applications the stock coil packs on the lsx motors are more than enough...id stay stock and get good wires

    I'm trying to go for a more traditional looking engine compartment, so I'd like to hide the coil packs. Is there a better way than the pencil coils? Can I simply relocate original style coil packs somewhere, or does someone offer a kit? The motor is going in a 66 chevy II.

    It would take longer wires and splicing extra lenght in your harness but yes you could move them to anywhere you want. just remember the longer the plug wires the more resistance you will have.
    if you were just trying to make it look cleaner, you can go on ebay and they have some cheaper carbon fiber covers that will go right on top of coils to really clean up the look of it. they look cheap but I would get them, scuff them down and paint to match your car

    Jegs sells these coil covers, I don't think they'd look good on an f-body but would be right at home on a classic...
