  • ignition help

    i was informed that my ignition coil on my 96 sl2 is going wires are corroded.
    trying to find new wires plugs and coil that will give me a little more hp doing what i can till tranny is paid off than porting and polishing block
    also is the big bore throttle body worth it?

    There really isn'y any plug wires or coils that will give you a HP increase. Either replace with stock or get something as good a stock that looks better, like MSD or SPS wires. For the coils people "alledgedly" have issues with aftermarket coils on OBD-2 systems but I've never heard first hand accounts and I personally have had Accel coils for years without any issues. YMMV though.

        you're port and polishing you're block??? or you're head?


        cuz if you do the block u got issues



        and the throttle body is worth it if you do the P&P you're self, it will only take you a couple of hours, the gains are better (way better as tested on the single cam of fury) throttle response

        On mine I got to 0 on vacuum quiecker

                why does everyone think mileage=engine health? lol

                before I sold my red coupe, at 145k it read 210psi in all four and only burned about a quart every 3k.

                    A quart is normal.

                    My first engine popped at 130K, and it was like that. Never burned alot of oil, and it ran really good.

                      207psi across the board on mine, CLT is less than 7% leakage on all cyliners. 154, 500 on it. Anyways. Get stock coilpacks nad some MSD wires (if you want plugs too go with the NGK bkr5e11's.)

                        yeah aftermarket coils and wires wont add power, unless they were so bad that they knocked hp down a little, in which putting new parts in place will bump power back up to stock.

                        im using msd wires and coils and have come to find ac delco rapidfire plugs are the best to go with. wish i didnt pull them out [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/sad.gif[/img]
