EL's don't come with coil pack

But all dizzy cars still have one singal coil that supplys spark to the dizzy

That's what I am talking about.....not a coil pack but the one that hooks up to the centre plug on the dissy

All you need is the leads with the 90 degree boot.....if i get a chance i'll have a look and see what ones mick webb put on mine, I know they are 8mm ones, i'll go and check

I needed a custom length coil to dizzy lead when I upgraded to a full Crane HI6 ignition system, was late Saturday and needed to get the car going again, so got a long Bosch lead, cut it and recrimped it. Worked fine.

just off topic, would there be any advantages over using 30lbs with maf over 24lbs FMS injectors? as ive got 186rwkw with 19's and stock maf, anyone reakon i could break 200rwkw with 30's and matching maf?

Got a generally stronger bottom end (important as I've got a highly strung cam that doesn't com eon til about 3000rpm), and 3 or 4 RWKW up top. Throttle response is much quicker.

Excuse run 15 as I had the chip in economy mode.

Run 13 started highe rup the power wise, but peaked earlier and lower.

16/17 highlights the quicker acceleration offered (by the steeper start).

I'm now doing better with a free flowing intake.

I reckon it would be hard to break 200rwkw with the setup you have, the heads probably aren't quite up to the task.

If your thinking of going supercharger, I would sit on the 186rwkws with the 19lb injectors and wait until you get the blower and go straight to 42lb or even a little bigger cause at the moment it doesn't look like your injectors are holding you back cause that is about the power figure you should expect from your setup.

My car is going pretty well, no issues yet but need to increase low down torque, she's a little slow off the line so i'm chasing up a stall converter as we speak. I went the Trickflow Track Heat stage 1 cam, very nice and lumpy and when it comes on song you definately know its there. Also thinking of a unichip just to get it right in the tune department. It goes on the dyno in two weeks so i'll let you know how it goes.
