Ha ha! Well, thanks for the way you put that as well.
Yes, it's absolutely a cost effective replacement, and there have been some problems with our coil packs with internal arcing and other failures. An improved replacement that is cost effective is for SURE a benefit.
Also, engine "dress up" is a big part of modding for many truck build ups and I understand that. From that standpoint it also makes sense.
I really don't want to imply it's a bad product at all Wayne -- I respect your business and I know you wouldn't sell it if it were junk.
I've watched the launch of this product but I wasn't going to "kibitz", but in this case the question was asked and that's my honest opinion: that suprisingly enough the Ford DIS is a powerful ignition from the factory.
But that doesn't mean that a replacement coil doesn't make sense for some folks.
