Just wanted to see if any one has used these yet. Summit has them 105 a piece. Are worth it

Not unless you Turbo or supercharge not needed.

And while we have them on the supercharged 12' it's more for looks, the standard coil packs are fine, but you know what they say, some is good, more is better. ;)

I was looking around at pricing the other day and can think of many other things I'd rather spend nearly a grand on before coil packs.

I've actually heard on many forums, where the MSD coil packs produce less energy than the stock coil packs. I also hear the same for their wires as well, actually quite a bit worse than the stock wires in many tests.

However, I've heard nothing but great things about "Magnecor" wires. http://www.magnecor.com/magnecor1/truth.htm

Absolutely no performance benefit over stock..actually as said stock are as good or better. Simply a costly cosmetic improvement and I've read of many failing as well..

I heard that painting the stock ones with some red Krylon is worth 2hp at the wheels.

Paint does absolutely nothing for horsepower. Paint + stickers on the other hand...

Now JC Whitney claims 30 plus hp with paint, stickers and windshield decal. ;)

The 1908 Model T Ford had MSD ignition which is now claimed to be the latest and greatest thing.

I don't think the drivetrain can handle stickers
