Aftermarket coil packs

What is everybodys opinions on aftermarket coil packs on NA 2.0L? (i.e. MSD, ACCEL, Granatelli...) I am ready to change the plugs and figured if I can squeeze a bit more juice out why not? I know running the E3 plugs with Accel super coils woke up my Ford V8s. Do they actually help the NA 2.0? TIA

Have you guys noticed any +/- on plug brands? (E3 vs NGK vs OEM)

Funny how you have tested all of the brands he listed that arnít the ones you sell and claim they have a loss. And havenít tested your own plugs.

I like the Motorcraft SP463 plugs in the performance MK3 engine

I have never see any good from the NGK or Brisk on the Focus
