Unless you have a need for it, i.e. Turbo, high compression, don't waste your money. put those hundreds into something a bit more worth while.

yeah, i agree with vince, the only reason i got mine was b/c my coil went, my cap was bad, and wires were old, so i figured i'd just get the box while i was at it. i did notice the car runs a lot smoother, starts easier and a stuff like that, but nothin too major

you will get NO noticable power increase if that's what your after....it's mostly preventative, or "just in case"

The stock ignition works great with mildly modded cars. I would only get it if I was turboing or had a serious na setup. Otherwise it really just helps out with gas mileage and smoothness but not power. So I would put the money towards something else.

yeah if you feel like paying out the ass to get a gray cover rather than a red one go for it, b/c thats the only differnece, a diff. cover and a bigger price tag.
