ICM wouldn't hurt. It'* not necessary though.

Wires.. What do you prefer? Many here like the big three. AC Delco (Advance/Parts America), Autolite Professionals (Advance/Parts America) and Napa Beldens.

All three are free lifetime replacement. Although recently I found out that Napa is strict about having the box and receipt to return them.

If you use Napa for any parts.. use a AAA card if possible.

SSEi

The difference in the wires is length depending on year aka engine style. The S1'* had two plugs that opposed each other on the head and the S2..they are all consistently pointing the same direction.

So...not to threadjack...

but is there any notable benefit from running say...S2 L67 coils on ANY series one? or just the S1 L67? Would it benefit me at all, or should I just leave it alone.
