Re: ok lost here

A coil on plug is a seperate individual coil that sits on each plug. You will not need to replace wires, just remove the coil and replace the plug.

Re: ok lost here

You can install MSD equipment with adapters (replaces box and coil packs), but it's too expensive- you don't need to upgrade your ignition unless you're running forced induction or nitrous.
