i think you will notice a difference over stock but 45$ each is pretty expensive. last time i checked summit i think they where only 35$ each there and they give free shipping!!

From what I understand, this is a knock-off MSD product.

I guess it is supposed to give you a small gain in power. However, stock coils provide PLENTY of spark. Some of the fastest 3800 powered cars use stock coils.

These coils will give slightly better mid-range pull on anything BUT 97+ SSEi'* and GTP'*. And those coils can be bought elsewhere for cheaper.
