[DML] Re: stage II



I did change those parts, not bcause they were worn out, but because 
they are old! Besides a 40kVolt coil delivers a stronger spark than 
the standard 18kVolt from Bosch.
Stronger sparks give better combustion, thus cleaner exhaust gases, a 
smoother running engine, probably also a more fuel efficient mileage 
and a little improvement in performance. That's why I changed those 
parts.
All little things adding to a better performing car.
A performance car is something totally different(ours ain't a muscle 
car).

I wonder why you mention those parts not to be performance parts? 
Maybe not what you would use in racing, bot all that helps to improve 
performance can be called performance parts IMO.
Even a free flow manifold and beter muffler can be considered so if 
it helps improving the car's performance!
Or do you consider performance only true when adding over multiple 
tens or hundreds of hp?
