If your a gear head who'* at the races every weekend, go for it. But if its your daily driver and you're just a street junkie (not a negative term, just my own term, lol) don't worry about the modules and DIS-4

They look cool....

Oh performance wise? LOL! Stronger spark and slightly more midrange power.

I already have the MSD coils and I notced a slightly better idle and better response.

As for the whole setup? I have the adapters and DIS4 on order and will hopefully be shipping soon. I can let you know how they work once I get them in.

where are you getting the dis-4 for $199? I'd go for it just cause its $130 cheaper than summitracing.com

My preference is the Taylor Spiro Pro wires and NGK TR55 V-power plugs. I'm running this setup with the MSD coils.

I just recieved my DIS4 and adapters last night. I think I might try installing them this weekend. I still need to read over the manual to make sure I know what I'm doing...or atleast think I know.
