    Not sure. I got them off Ebay. They were supposed to be AC Delco LS2 coils but they came in plain brown boxes so I'm counting on having to replace them LOL.

    Oh ok. The D585 truck coils are the best as far as durability and output. They have the same mounting pattern as the 581's but also have an external heat sink.

    I went to the boneyard this past weekend and found the exact coils you have, which seem to be called the LS2 coils or D581.

    I seem to remember when the TR6 first came out that he specifically said you cannot run truck coils... not sure if that's changed

    Maybe, just a thought. I'll be running MS3 Pro, anyway.

    4" intake tube. All the tubes came polished but I chose to give them the "brushed" look with WD40 and a Scotch Brite pad.

    Realized I haven't updated in a while. Car is running and driving. Shifter and clutch feel good. Haven't really gotten into too much boost but it feels like it wants to eat. No issues with spool up. Still have a ways to go with the interior and finishing touches.
