Exclamation Screamin demon coil pack and live wires

Well about 15000 miles ago I bought the screamin demon coil pack, live wires and some brisk spark plugs. And actually, I think I may have gained some power, Engine felt more peppy.(I have a mac shorty header, flex tube, ud pulleys, and the above). But 2 weeks ago my car died a horrible death that ended up costing me $175 for the new alternator and the cost of new focus sport wires to fix. My alternator died and at the same time the coil pack melted itself....destroying the live wires... Has anyone else had this problem? Or even heard of this problem?

That sucks....I've heard bad things about the screamin' demon coil pack, but I have the msd coil pack and wires that massive speed system.com just came out with and no problems with them. I highly recommend them. The stock coil is a POS IMO, it fell into pieces when I took it off, and I was extremely gentle on it.
