Thanks for the info! After I get the standard coils from boost and make sure thats my problem I will look into MSD, also since we are on ignition, I wanted to ask if there are any other plug wires that are good besides the napas, I don't have a napa near me.

Also just to confirm, I want to run a NGK TR55 plat. tip plug correct? I am going to the store this afternoon to buy parts so just want to be sure.....

NGK TR55'* are V-power plugs (split electrode) and are not platinum tipped. Which is why so many L67'* here run them. We can't run platinum. They are a standard copper plug.

Try Autolite wires if you can't get the Beldens.

MSD'* are available from Jeg'* or Summit. Compare pricing and shipping charges. If you're going to buy NEW coils, these are the cheaper, better alternative to OEM.

Well I did find a NAPA way on the other side of town so I took a drive and got the wires. Plugs and wire are in along with new coils. What plugs should I run? Is it ok to run TR55 since they are already in?
