Unless you give some more air and fuel for the high performance plugs n assembly to burn, there isnt any use of 'em...Give 'em some rich mixture to turn into smoke, with free flows then you will feel some debatable difference...You can also try some high power racing coils custom made for your car...

If you use a stronger coil(higher voltage output) on a normal car with a good timing setting you can defn increase the torque of the car on lower revs and it would also lead to better burning of the fuel and lower emmisions. Have used the OE ignition setup for way more than just normal driving and it holds well enough. The replacement wires are also good as they tend to outlast the OE wires and give you a consistent spark.

However looking at visible benefits I really dont think you would notice them excepting for the emmisions part of it, and the costs usually outweigh the benefits. (However would defn suggest for a race setup)

Hi,

They both use different products and technologies. I personally feel MSD is a better product than Spitfire and is also more popular the world over. You don't have to change anything. It all depends on what you want though as a package it is better.
