[DML] Re: Bolt On Performance.

Cap and rotor already had been replaced.
Old wires and new wires (factory type) would not have made much 
difference as the resistance would still be higher than that of the 
cables provided by John.
You may be aware of the fact that a higher output voltage of the coil 
improves the quality of the spark.
A standard 18 kV coil is no match for a 40 kV coil.

The original coil worked, but did not provide the spunk as the higher 
rated coil from John does.
In such cases it also matters that you do not want to wait until the 
thing gives in (like buying a new TV often happens before the old one 
dies on you).

This also goes for the suspension (spring and shocks). If you are not 
content with their behavior, you consider replacement even if they 
still work.
