Smile Demoncoil Pack and Livewires

So I was wondering, my car has not been... well, racing right. I seem to not be as fast as i should be. ST's with an Exhaust sytem can either hold with me or beat me... 2.0L duratecs give me a good run, I barely beat em (like by a half car length)

Its got 60k miles on it and I was thinking of putting some new igintion stuff on it. I was planning on the Demoncoil pack with Live Wires and maybe some new spark plugs (probaly motorcrafts).

Do yall think that'll liven the car up a bit? Im going to gap the plugs a bit bigger. (whats a good gap?)

How many horses should I expect from this, I saw on some site that it'll give around 3hp. Sound right?
Also, are UD Pullies a pretty good buy?

Skip the Screamin Demon stuff, it's mostly crap. The stock ignition coil is very good. I would go with Taylor plug wires, Motorcraft copper plugs gapped to .055 to .060 depending on how the car feels, and..... a new fuel filter.

Downfall is that the stock coil pack is excellent in the first place. I just put some taylor wires and AZFS22C's in the other day. The idle is smooth as butter, pulls very nice through the rpm's. I cant say it's markedly improved anything, but I can say the wires are VERY high quality build, and the plugs needed a change.

Do you have a part number for those Taylor wires? I searched a bunch of sites and couldn't find anything for an 03 SVT

Thanks

well i have the screamin demon coilpack and livewires and i can say first hand it is excellent and ive had no problems in the 30,000 miles ive had it on my car - it runs very smoothly and get better gas mileage and better/stronger response from my engine than i did before- i also have denso iridium spark plugs- but i wouldnt recommend them just based on price - i am switching to copper motorcrafts shortly

I have the screamin deamon coil pack and live wires as well. They are nice, easy to install and have never given me a problem.

How hard/easy is it to install new plugs, I know wires a new coil pack are easy. Also, if the stock coil pack is fine, would going to bigger wires be benefitial? Steeda's wires or Ford Racings or OBX?
