Bought the Livewires kit...

Is the install hard? How much hp will it add? 8-10 at the wheels, I hope! I've got some ricers to smoke!



...anyways...

I hope this pack holds up better than my last S.D. When I took it off to do some troubleshooting, I found that one of the barbs had fallen out at some point. Anyone else have this problem on aftermarket coil packs?

Also, for those that have the livewires, how "beefy" are the sleeves? Seem like they'll hold up pretty well to heat? Real fricken' intense heat?

Thanks!

Only two? Oh snap, what's the good then?

Will this setup at least help my intake sound better? I want it to sound like a turbo...

Seriously, you MAY see 1-2 HP from the wires. Maybe none if your old wires were in good shape... It is a cheap easy upgrade, so put them on. EASY easy easy install. oh yeah, for the ricer in us all..... They look good , too

I would say very little horsepower increase 1 max, but will definately stable your idle and spark will increase making a more complete burn of the fuel, i really didn't notice a difference in horsepower with this install, but don't plan to be spanking any ricers any time soon...

They REALLY have no clue, do they Tin? Sometimes I just sit back and laugh.

Back on topic: The Accell sucks ass. I went through three before I went with the SD and Livewires. So far, no problems whatsoever. Heck, it even came with new screws!!
