MSD Ignition

I'm looking to replace my ignition coils, spark plugs and wires. I'm looking to use MSD Ignition coils/wires, and NGK or E3 spark plugs. Has anyone had any experiences with these? Are they going to be worth the upgrade?

Re: MSD Ignition

If you're going to spend the bucks to upgrade the coils, why not upgrade to the 06> valve covers and coils? You'd also need the coil plugs, as they are different between 05 and 06>. I looked into this for my 05 Hemi LX and gave up on the idea because of the cost and no gain in power. IMO, lots of $$$ just to make it look nicer. I ended up just putting the Taylor Shorty wires on mine, and use NGKLZTR4A-11, Stock No. 5306 plugs. I also use the same plugs in my Hemi WK.

If you're set on doing this, you may want to do a search. There used to be an outfit that sold a conversion kit. Seems to me it was about $300 or so.
