how hard is it to change the coils? Are the ones you use the same ones as these ones?:

John, coils are two screws each. I wouldn't do it unless you had a bad coil.

PM me before you buy those. I have a proposition for you

Nice job cleaning under the hood. I have a 91 GMC Sonoma that needs the same treatment. Do you make house calls? LOL

yeah you wont see any performance out of them, the wires a bit thicker and are a tight squeeze in the stock holders. They do look good under there however. I bought them for my old bonneville when a coil pack cracked, and then i used them on my alero just for looks.

They are a bit hotter than OEM 92-96 coils when compared to 97+ SSEi/GTP L67 coils. A little better midrange power, but it'* very hard to 'feel'.

That engine looks great. I'll have to try that stuff when it warms up around here.

Looks great. Yeah, having a garage is sure nice. My little brother just bought a house and is moving in next weekend. The place has one 2 car garage (with plenty room to spare) and another single car garage. Both are unattached to the house, but a nice propane heater in the 2 car and we'll be in there all weekend long every weekend during the winter.
