1. Is it worth the bucks?

I've picked three, but please don't limit your answer to these three. Thank you.

From what I have seen, changing the coil packs hasn't done anything for performance in the past. So "Is it worth the bucks?" the answer seems to be a consistent "No", since there isn't enough to warrant spending the money.

Nope, worthless mod that will typically render bigger headaches, due to failures or unreliability, than any psychological gain you could possibly get from them. Save the cash and invest in some real mods...

Has any independent people tested them? I'm sure people would be willing to accept a set for testing. Torque is hard to come by on coyotes, you just don't slap on 20wtq like that.

Default Independent test

Agree. Granatelli or one of the other manufacturers should send out a set, and let someone report back to this group. An extra eighteen horsepower would be nice.

I find it hard to believe and agree someone else needs to test it, like maybe horsepower TV/Powernation or one of the other vendors who sell the product.

Default Unbiased

TV shows are beholden to their sponsors. The only way it works is if Granatelli doles out the gear to someone who is a good mechanic. Before and after pulls on a dyno of the tester's choice. This would be great.
