Unless your coil is bad I would stick with the stock coil and get the Ford Racing wires

thanks for not answering his question... but anywho it will raise your rev limiter, and the more spark and larger wires help keep power at higher rpms instead of losing it , and when i dynoed my svt with stock wires and coil it was still climbing at 7250 then topped out . so if i did it now with the rev limiter at 7600ish i could be making more power pass 7250 just havent
dynoed it yet, but adding more hp it doesnt, just lets you reach hp that is already there. if that helps

there is no way changing the wires and coil will raise your rev limiter.

Yes I have. I've also drove/dyno'd a car with the Screamin' Demon and Jay Racing COP conversion. There is no measurable difference between any at any RPM. Which means the stock stuff is just fine and will support anyone's goals, RPM or otherwise. And I'm not the only one who'll say this,,, and this is beside the fact I am currently running the Jay Racing COP setup.

If you have some proof to otherwise I'm sure we'd love to see it.
