Screm'n Deamon, yea or nay??

As usual I bought a Scream'n Demon coil pack with there recommended lightning 10mm plug wires and a box of Brisk plugs and promptly put the package on my bench while I contemplate installing it all or sending it back.
I must say it's a pretty nice looking package and the plug wires seem well made. For $80 they should be.
My question is . What will this really do for the performance of my ZTS. I got ton's of replies on my Pipercross question. A few replies here would be helpful.
It would be great to hear from other Zetch enthusiast who have done this mod.

You're not going to really see any performance gains from it, but it will really help smooth out your idle.

i put the screamin' demon coil and the 10mm wires on my svtf and gapped the stock spark plugs to the recommended gap. it seems to respond a lil better and it seemed to have a lil more get up and go (not a lot but it felt like it did something). they did put them on an svt in some magazine and they got 1-2 whp and 2-3 wtq (i think) increase. its worth the install, esp. if i u plan to do future mods.

a lot of people are running stock coil packs and FR wires for their HIGH HORSEPOWER setups with turbos and superchargers...they run them with no problems...so i don't see why you would really want to get the demon coil packs if even those who shelled out lots of money for hp gains don't even bother with them.

Indeed. In reality, you don't need more spark unless you're pusing quite a bit of boost or a heavy shot of nitrous. The extra spark won't do anything to mild/moderate n/a setups or low-boost setups because there's no extra fuel to need the extra spark to ignite.

I know people putting down 160whp with the stock injectors. Injectors won't make your car faster. Neither will the simple stuff like pullies, plug wires, plugs, etc.

Let's go back to the basics: Cars use air/fuel mixture to make it go. More spark and fuel won't do shit unless you can get more air into the combustion chamber.

I'll let that thought sink in.

yea but the way it was explained to me is that the stock ones sometimes do not fire but these do and that is why these are better. i dont know but i would put them on. you bought them already so you might as well. i might be getting this mod soon so let me know what you think about it.

That's nice. Now back to my original question. If I give my combustion chamber more fuel via upgraded injectors and then torch it with a hot coil pack you say I'll need more air right? If I give it more air with a performance intake will I then make a difference in H.P.
