I have a coil pack with a badly corroded terminal. What is the best thing to replace it with? Only mod it a 3.4 pulley.

Steel wool works too or sos pad.
You can 'tweak' the plug wire connector with a pair of
needle nose pliers if it feels weak after you clean the coil terminal.

Put your yr and model in your sig, and a 3.4 is your only mod?

I agree with cleaning that coil post. But use dielectric grease on it before installing it again.

And if that 3.4" is indeed your only mod, let us know. That might mean problems down the road for you.
