im thinking of getting some of these as my car started missing top end and i have refurbed the coilpacks and sparkplugs but i think they both need changing after a very long life.
the thing is i don't want standard packs and plugs as they are rubbish and don't want to spend loads of spitfires so the driftwork wastespark coilpacks look to be the ideal thing as they are under half the price of the spitfire packs.
also whats good cheap plugs for a stage one r33 gtst?

we put a set on my girl's cefiro , rb20 , made a huge improvement in responsiveness and it feel's much smoother right through the full range!!!

our only issue was the length of the ht leads , they are hoooooooge!!

DW's are good, but they create unnecesary spark. instead of one spark every 4 cycles on the tdc of the compression cycle, it sparks on the compression cycle and the tdc of the exhaust cycle... creating more heat. but it burns off access fuel.

yeah it sounds a better setup than standard but not quite as good as spitfires but with the price to match the upgrade.

i was advised not not fit the drift works kit by a friend he had a bad experance with(the coil pacs)not driftworks... i ended up fitting a second hand std coil pack to cure mine then i gaped my plugs to .8 and it cured my problems i know its a quick fix but it will do till i can afford spitfires

Personally i dont think even the std coil packs are bad, on both my cars they've had the std originally coils on them at 14years old and only needed replacing because i asked them to do more and run more power.

On mine i've been running new std coils for just over 3 years and over 400bhp and there still going strong, i'm sure i will at some point upgrade to splitfires but not just yet.

any more thoughts on these/
waste of £145 or not as i don't want to spend loads and spitfires are double the price!

Splitfires are £267 delivered, which personally i think are worth that little bit extra over the driftworks set up, but if you really dont wanna spend it then i'd go with them.
