I may be in the minority here, but most people agree that the ignition system we have is already overkill. I can make a 1+ inch spark from my pack with the plugs connected. I zapped myself the other day screwing around under the hood, lol, checking the coil pack boot while running.

I took the wire off and it was arcing back to the pack more than an inch and the truck never stumbled. I moved it a bit further, and it bit me, lol!

Personally, and no disrespect to those selling them, they are totally unnecessary.

lol. Thanks for the polite way of putting it. One advantage is sheer cost in a replacement issue. When I was experiencing miss fires, Auto Zone wanted $150 for a replacement coil pack. I did not check anywhere else. I just walked out a little surprised at the amount of $$'s. If it was blue I would have paid it and walked out with a big smile on my face.

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.
