Hypertech 4052 - Hypertech Power Coil Kits - Is it worth purchasing?

Sup guys. Im thinking of buying a Hypertech 4052 - Hypertech Power Coil Kit because Im having trouble starting up my IROC. So is it worth buying? Is there any noticable performance gain? And most importantly, will my Dizzy cap cover fit with this large cap dizzy?

Re: Hypertech 4052 - Hypertech Power Coil Kits - Is it worth purchasing?

I had one on my 85 Camaro. It's just a slightly hotter coil and a high quality cap & rotor with brass terminals. Will not hurt to put on some high quality ignition parts on but do not expect any major performance gains from it. Usually better idle quality and throttle response is the most you can expect from stuff like that.

I have not owned that car in a long time. I really do not remember if it improved starting. Sorry

I kind of lost interest in buying it. So I canned the idea. About 2 weeks ago, I bought myself a small cap hei with a remote coil. It was a better purchase too. MSD cap, MSD rotor, MSD coil, oem distributor and Taylor Plugwires for $80 shipped.
