is it possible to convert these cars from having wires to having direct ignition?

and still the question remains.. WHY are the wires so dang expensive.. i am having an extremely hard time trying to swallow the fact that i have to pay around two hundred dollars for a wire set... and the worst part is that i NEED new ones..

Honestly, I have no idea and find the thought totally ridiculous. However, you can get regular replacement ones for $122.79 for Denso, $136.79 for Bosch from Rockauto. True story- look it up ;)

why is the thought of that ridiculous..? i mean i wouldnt buy the stuff new, of course (if at all) but rather find some junkyard parts.. just thought that the stuff might plug in.. there are benefits to having direct ignition like the 99+ ones all have

wow thats nuts... and as for conversion, It might be possible but how on earth do you wire up the coil packs to the ECU...? I guess you cant... I would try autozone, those guys always have stuff for less then expected...
