Which setup would you choose? The Accel coil upgrade with Accel Thunder Sport wires or the Screamin' Demon coil pack and Livewires?

The Accel setup would run about $140, while the Screamin' Demon setup is about $145.

SD and live wires!!

They are a great way to smooth out a rough idle, smoother acceleration, and get some better MPG while your at it.

Can you only use the livewires for the SD coil pack? or will any sized aftermarket wires (say magnecors 8.5mm) work?

I had Magnacores on my SD coil, you just have to order the right ones b/c the conectors on the coil are diffrent from the stock ones.

what's the advantage of replacing the coil & wires rather than just wires? does it really make any difference in our cars?

side note; I refuse to pay 25% of the product's cost to ship something, so FocusSport is not getting my business on their spark plug wires ... any other recommendations under $60?

The high performance coil pack will deliver a more juice to the plugs, creating a larger spark, and resulting in more horsepower. You need the bigger wires to handle the larger amount of electricity that the coil produces.

Accel ThunderSport wires run about $60 at Advance Auto Parts.

Thanks dazada, I have to see now if I can afford to go with screamin' demon setup ... but I'll keep the Acell wires in mind just in case.

I couldn't figure out what the recommended replacement rate is on these higher performance wires though ... are they still 30,000 miles? I would assume that with the silicone jackets and all the heat and cold they withstand it should be at least double the factory set-up ... but no where had it listed in terms of longevity ...
