I've ordered a couple things from Jegs before and I got them pretty quickly. I would expect it shouldn't take too long. They are a fairly big supplier and will probably be getting a shipment from MSD fairly soon.

BTW: Did you get a chance to test the coil packs yet or are you just going with the upgrade anyways?

The MSD coils have been on back order for about a month or so now! MSD dropped the ball & didn't produce enough for the spring demand. More are due off the line this month or so.

I have had the MSD coils on back order from JEG'* for almost 3 weeks. Talked to them on Monday and they said I would get them before the end of next week. SUMMITT RACING told me the same thing two weeks ago.

how do you test to see if your coils are any good?

Techinfo. I posted a procedure. Pretty simple, really.

1. Stand in a bucket of cold water.

2. Run a new cable from the negative batter terminal to the ground about 6" from the bucket.

3. Pull the #5 wire off the coil.

4. Lick your left thumb, and touch the #5 terminal while a buddy cranks the car.

If your hair stands up, it worked. Repeat 5 more times.

Oops. Wrong procedure. Check Techinfo.

Wasn't that attach one end to left nut, while holding another cable to right nut?
