MSD 8245 Coil packs

Anyone have any experience, pro's and cons on these pieces for the LS2?
What did you pay for them and from who?
Open for suggestions on a good set of A/M wires too.

At $80 a pop x 8 = $640 for coils! That's alot if you ask me for an "unkown". I bought the MSD wires and they at least killed alot of noise on the AM band while listening to Rush!

We had a dyno day back on the 3rd and a guy there had the MSD coils, he made one pull with the MSD's and one pull with the stockers, no change in hp or tq. Might as well flush $600 down the toilet.

Buddy of mine has it on his 04 GTO. The idle is better as well as throttle response. This car makes over 430rwhp also.

They might not gain numbers on a dyno but real gains in the way the car responds is much better.

look at it this way, when lingenfelter made 800rwhp on a twin turbo LS1, he used the stock coil packs.

WASTE OF MONEY!
