ignition?

OK so I have another question. What's the best ignition for the spi? From plugs to wires to an actual ignition. I'm in the market and would love your feed back.

Screamon Demon makes a nice coil for us, and Magnecore makes a wire set that is top-notch. I personally run an Accel coil for the Escort, and Accell wires for the 2.3 Ranger. I do this because I'm a tight-azz.

I had a set of FS wires. I'm a FS bitch. Loved 'em. Can't beat a lifetime warranty, either.

Not really heard too much about it. Now the ignition switch goes out a-lot, but not really the coil or wires. Interesting.



www.performancedistributors.com New product available just this week. Look under the Escort setup. You can get the coil, wires, and looms for like $165.00
