Default engine spark?

What are your thoughts about these coils. It is a one coil one plug setup with short spark plug wires.

4 of these cost 250€ which is kinda cheap because if you run your car with these you newer have to update ignition system.

That's expensive for what we pay in the US.
Those are just LS truck coils, they're cheap new, even cheaper when purchased used.

Many people here have run them, they work very well.

Maybe? Without having a part number, it's really hard to make an educated guess.

Just stock LS truck coils are pretty awesome, you can even get aftermarket replacement ones that don't suck for cheap ($50 each).

This is what people commonly use in North America:

Thank you for the yoshifab link.
I was planning to design a bracket with cad and then make it with a cnc machine, but this is a lot easier and cheaper route.

Aem coils was 30-2853 part number.

Not that exact brand, but LS style coils... yes.

There are at least 2 different mounting styles, so make sure you get the correct coil bracket for the coils you are ordering.
