Mercury Marine Coil packs is what they were intended for orginally. Now alot of aftermarket companies are using them as well as race teams. I know Huber's Mustang is or was running around 40psi with them and had no issues at all. They are something like 17amps each, I have two 25amp breakers running them out of sequential so they won't pop.

As Tom has said , I'm running a standalone. I can individually trim spark and fuel per cylinder, and with 4 widebands I can tune it very well.

Thanks, I'm using megasquirt. I was orginally using ms2 on a modified 3.57 board. I'm now running ms3x with a expansion board. The expansion board is for these widebands, VSS, oil pressure..etc (misc inputs). Although I had it installed before, I'm in process or re-doing the entire standalone install. I wasn't happy with how I had wired it previously. Made my own engine loom and all.

Here is a picture of the header installed.

and the engine loom I made: (clear isn't shrinked yet, need to label wires then shrink them)
