Screamin demon coil pack and live wires
 
Well about 15000 miles ago I bought the screamin demon coil pack, live wires and some brisk spark plugs.[burnout] And actually, I think I may have gained some power, Engine felt more peppy.(I have a mac shorty header, flex tube, ud pulleys, and the above). But 2 weeks ago my car died a horrible death that ended up costing me $175 for the new alternator and the cost of new focus sport wires to fix. [scream] My alternator died and at the same time the coil pack melted itself....destroying the live wires... Has anyone else had this problem? Or even heard of this problem?

That sucks....I've heard bad things about the screamin' demon coil pack, but I have the msd coil pack and wires that massive speed system.com just came out with and no problems with them. I highly recommend them. The stock coil is a POS IMO, it fell into pieces when I took it off, and I was extremely gentle on it.

That's the MSD system, remember that ONLY their wires fit with it so no quick replacements available.

2007 thread, loudfocus01 WAS still active through mid 2016 but I wouldn't hold my breath for a reply.

Stock type in working condition performs as well.

Yeah I figured. I put about 100miles a day on my car and just wanted a beefier set of wires. Everywhere I look it seems the only way to do that is to go msd.

What does how far you drive have to do with wire size?


Stock and even the cheapest Autozone replacement wires will work just fine.
FYI, the jacket size has nothing to do with wire quality or EMI suppression ... Silicone has no EMI suppression properties.

Why not stay stock. Spending money not gaining anything.
