what? I paid 50 through summit racing.

Review I love them. Throttle response is better. last tank I got my best highway mileage yet 31.7 mpg with a wicked cross wind at 70 mph.

I got black said they would not be shipped until the 10th of april they arrived on the 6th so much for their info.

coppers gapped to .060 with thundervolts seem better than Sd coil and Live wires.

I will try to dyno both setups on the 18th of May.

maybe I will bite the bullet and buy a set of stock wires to see if any setup actually makes power.

Be sure to dyno them all new. It will require you to use the SD coil with the Live Wires.

They're on back-order from Summit now. Popularity has apparently increased. WD, you should send a Taylor rep the link to this thread so they can check out your review and maybe get the wire length to be the same as stock.

I'll be glad to donate my stock coil, with the stock plugs i have sitting around for that. The wires only have like 300 miles on them. Let me know man-

I don't have the money to be buying a new SD and Regular coil and New taylor wires and Live wires. My SD setup only has 5K on it.

I think the Stock wires would be a good thing to dyno as well. I'll take those wires if you don't mind.

hey SVT-sage there is a Focus nation meet at my place in Naperville if you want to come you are Invited. Send me a PM and I will send you the info.

i just got rid of my sd lw setup because my sd coilpack cracked where it gets plugged in at and was meesing my car up somethin fierce, so i replaced it with stock coil and taylor thundervolts and to me it runs about the same slightly better response and maybe a pinch more power - but def better start up and smoother acceleration- just my 2 cents

That's funny, they're based within the metro area where I live yet I can't drive there and pick some up.
