Coil Pack Question

I've been told that if you swap the coil packs from the lsx truck motors onto the the ls1 motors, you gain 15+ horsepower. Is this true?

How would one go about getting these coil packs. Dealer? And I assume I would want the same year coil packs as my car.

There's no reason at all for coil packs to add horsepower. Save your money.

Yea. I don't understand how they add power but "reportedly" they do add power. That is another thing I would like to find out.

It sounds like it depends on how built the motor is. If you are running a stock ls1, then you will probably won't see any gains.

Does this sound correct?

It also sounds a bit more difficult to do the swap to a 98 than the 99 and newer. Unfortunately I have a 98

98 ls1's Arent really much different than any others. They just have a few problems that are easily fixable.

D585's are what you're looking for. I put them in my build and they are HOT. All kinds of fire come out of those things. Doubt highly 15hp...a few maybe. Hard to quantify some of the claims. Most experience smoother idle and better spark at high rpm. Dwell should be adjusted too.
