Magus2727 I think he just wanted orange ones. did not care about the size or was expecting performance gains. My guess is he has an orange color scheme that he is going for.

1turbofocus Aftermarket plug wires / coils on the focus do nothing for performance or lasting longer , the Ford wares are just as good and cheaper , if you need the clip on ones just order then for the ZX2 or Contour

Janefer007 Obviously there'll be a compatible issue. I don't understand why you ordered the 9 one but first you are satisfy on 8.2 mm. Should something has change your mind at the last time.

JFrye I talked to Massive, and they said they will gladly get the order corrected before they ship it out. Im glad I caught that in time, and didnt have to deal with the hassle of sending them back and waiting longer. I hope they will be in this week.

amc49 Longer bolts on incorrect bracket screams coil breakage, the corners will break off........get a Contour bracket and you can mount any coil on it.

FYI, I always slot the bottom bracket hole to open, that way all you have to do is slightly crack the bottom bolt loose and leave it in the head when removing bracket to say work on hoses or PCV. Sucks getting a rachet in there.

This is true. If you nab one from the junkyard, you'll need to get the bracket as well. Or just get some longer bolts.

JFrye I just read Massive's website again. They offered the 9mm Orange plug wires for either MSD or stock coil boots. They are both the same price, so I dont think it will be a problem. I just wanted to say thanks to all of those who have pitched in with information and advice for this.

JFrye Thanks for pointing that out. Hopefully Massive will be able to exchange them out for me, and get me the right ones sent.
