    They look nice under the engine cover :) I wouldn't spend my money on them, though.

    They work well, even smooth out those tiny "ripples" of roughness at idle. A tiny bit of increase in power too.

    Now that's the kind if info we need!
    If I wanted to spend my money on upgrades which would you recommend?

    From what I have seen. Pretty sure someone on here had a failure.

    That is not uncommon on older model cars with ignition coils as well. I have noted with anecdotal posts online over several years that OEM coils are usually best.

    I had an msd coil on an old car in the past, and after replacing that thing 3 times I would say stay far far away from msd products. I don't have any stats to back me up, but I've never heard of anyone having good luck with msd stuff lasting very long.
    If they weren't so expensive and swapping them out was a quick easy job, then maybe they'd be worth it.
