Open...Bill is misunderstood sometimes.

What he means in his above post is to really get across the point that the Accels are poor in quality and not worth the yellow coloring.

OSG has the only set I've seen last more than a month on this forum. Probably because his car isn't a daily driver.

I have about 300-400 miles on them, though.

But I know, if I didn't get such an incredible deal on the coils [$30 for all three], I wouldn't have bought them.

400 miles is nothing. The average american puts 1,200 miles on their car a month.


voodoochild, I noticed in your signature you put "superchared" instead of "supercharged." Nice pun.

Lol...I saw that, but after asking him to add something since his car could be either I figured we'd let it slide

So in the midst of all this hurricane drama goin on in my area, I desided to visit the junkyard and pick up some coil packs. I put the new(used) ones on and changed out my O2 senser and now my car drives like a DREAM. My idle is beautiful and im awestruck at the acceleration these [huge] cars have when in good mecanical form(was never able to floor it before).

I did what you said as well Bill, and check all my wires and piddled with everything. Hopefully the coil packs will last a while....


Ahhhh, finally done with car maintenence(for the time being). Time to work on performance, then apperence.
