here you go, to the 4 of you who asked me...
what a difference $168 well spent! no brainer

estamated time 30-45 minutes

step 1 make a map of fireing order /wire location ( see picture one )

step 2 remove all plug wires, on the passenger side theres a bolt that holds the radiator hose frame on , remove this bolt to get wire number 1 out (see picture 2)

step 3 unplug all wires from coil and plugs.

step 4 remove 4 bolts on top of the old coil, do not drop them it took me 20 minutes to get it out behind the fuel rail, i dont have grabbers or a magnet.

step 5 set on the new coil, put all 4 bolts in, dont forget to put the ground wire you took off back on!
(see picture 3)

next replace plugs or leave the old ones in ( gap to 0.65 )

next apply your live wires. or old spark wires in to correct positions useing the numbered wire to the correct cyl and coil position.

useing the supplied protectant, coat the plug porciln and wire boot.

plug boots in to plugs and your off to the races!!!!

(see picture 4)

coil map.bmp is picture 1 dunno why its diff :) good luck guys

I wonder if it's the coil or the wires or both that give the improvement.

Anybody try just the wires?

I read on some other forums about people having problems with the Screamin Demon, but still looking into it.

you have to upgrade your wires to handle the higher voltage of the demon to get the benifit :bigthumbsup

just a suggestion,,,dont take all the wires off the coil at once, if you can avoid it. Transfer them one at a time. Might reduce the possibility of crossing the wires. Same with the plug end.
Just a thought.

how expensive of a mod was this? I am looking for mods that don't break the bank but that do add more ponies

*edit* must have overlooked that in your first sentence :so

But i am going to look into this one. I have seen a lot of adds in magazines that these add some more power but i never really hear too much about it on the forums.

hey hot shot, if i`m not mistaken,and thats your car in your post, the v8 is totaly diff setup. you dont have a single coil pack like the v6. the v8 has seperate coils for each wire.:scratchchin the coil and wire setup in this post is for a 4.0 V6

i just pulled all the spark plug ends loose, out of the wire looms, and removed the 4 bolts, and the wire harness plug from the coil, lifted the coil with the wires still on it off. laid it on the bench, matched and plugged the new wires ( that are numbered) into the new coil, applyed the electro lube to each boot and set the new coil and wires in place on the motor. then it was just routing the wires back to the plugs. you could allways take a couple pics before removing. in my case i had my g/f`s car to reference.:)

The lube, do you want to apply it to the wires or the plugs or both? I plan on doing this tonight, my parts have been sitting in my garage eyeing me for far too long :shigrin

How hard of an install is this for someone who doesn't know a whole lot about cars? Are the instructions that come with it pretty detailed? Sounds like an awesome upgrade on both the performance side and cosmetics. I had never even heard of this item till I read this so thanks!

hey where di you find the kit fr $168? I'm planning on getting one...
