I love being deep into 10's....

What's the purpose of the way the coil plugs are mounted?

I'm guessing since they are running an AEM management system, those are AEM universal COP's that are designed to be mounted to a firewall, since not all COP setup's bolt to the head the same way. And it probably just makes it easier to tune using an AEM setup all around.

how much of a shot are u guys planning haha. im prepared to watch a piston fly into orbit. especially running a stock block lol. im excited for the 2.5 though!
