Default Ignition Coils problem...

I replaced my ignition coils about a year ago..I recently went through one of those garbage car washes at the gas station and my car started shaking again..like misfiring or stuttering...i know its my ignition coils and spark plugs because i have had this problem b4..They probably got wet some how....I was wondering if I should spend the xtra $$$ to get MSD ones or does it really not matter.....

I'm about to buy a set and the MSD I'm sure are nice, but for over 100 bucks more than the Granatelli, I don't think its worth it. You say that after going threw a car wash your car started missing? I wonder if thats the problem I'm having with mine. I didnt take it threw a car wash, but I just bought the car so im sure someone has.
I'm pretty much set on ordering these. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/GRN-25-2001/

The weapon X coils seem to get good reviews and are priced right.

Engineering is, at its base, making what you want from what you have.
At its extreme it is making what you want from what you can get.

Nitrous is like the Hot Chick with STD's. You wanna hit it, but you might regret it.

Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary… that’s what gets you.

WHY DON'T YOU GO PRACTICE FALLING DOWN, I'LL BE THERE IN A MINUTE!!!
