the Zetec never had a distributor... did it? those started to get phased out when OBD2 started. I know my 01 came with a coil pack stock...

As far a coil packs go they can allow for a "cleaner" spark so it will idle smoother in some cases. but you don't get a performance improvement when going with a different coil pack. Stock vs scream'n demon vs MSD are all the same until you start getting into the high boost applications. i think its safe to say the JRSC even with the boost kit is a boost application but is not a "high" boost.
