Default Ignition coils

I'm going to get new ignition coils for the car, not expensive, to hopefully get a little more performance out of the car, just to get it running smoother really, maybe a little renewed pop. Any ideas on what i should get, i've gone to SPSwebpage.com, saturn performance specialists, and they have a few on there. thanks in advance for any advice....

Coils unless faulty don't lose the "POP".

I would spend my money in other directions.

Clean your terminals and call it a day.

you will be dissapointed that your idea and money netted you nothing.

I would pull them clean them and reapply dielctric grease to all the connections and then your good for another 30K

Blackbird is right on here. Unless you are thinking of upgrading to a "tuneable" aftermarket ignition (I think MSD sells one that will work on a Saturn) the factory coilpacks are actually VERY good provided you properly maintain them. (Keep post metal contacts clean/bright and seal towers to BOOTS with dielectric grease)

not to much dielectric grease because it is not a conductor, it's an insulator
