    Your Mustang ignition upgrade isn't complete until you replace your weak Fox Body Mustang Ignition Coil with the PPerformance Distributors Screamin' Demon coil. This ignition coil will enhance the performance of your 5.0/5.8L Mustang by replacing that stock ignition coil with a coil that was designed to produce exceptional spark throughout your entire RPM range. Your stock Mustang Ignition Coil begins to fall off as you continue through your upper RPM range.

    The Screamin Demon Coil features a brass terminal for your coil wire to attach to. The brass terminal is more conductive than the stock aluminum terminal and will resist corrosion longer. Plug gaps can be widened to .060" due to the energy of this coil. The wider spark plug gap will allow more spark energy into the combustion chambers providing more power and improved mileage. The Screamin' Demon is too "hot" for stock plug wires. 8 mm spiral core wires are highly recommended

    Save time and money by buying our Performance Distributors Ignition Kit:
    This kit features the following parts:
    * Mustang Livewire Plug wires
    * Mustang Screamin Demon Ignition Coil
    * Mustang Hot Forged Aluminum Distributor
    * Mustang Taylor Wire Looms
    JONATHAN MCDONALD: The Performance Distributors Screaming Demon ignition coil has a tiger winding and a more concentrated winding for increased spark energy. This increased spark energy allows you to open up your spark plug gap to about 65 thousandths on a naturally aspirated car. It also features a brass terminal for better conductivity and increased corrosion resistance.

    Replacing the coil on your '86 to '93 5.0 Mustang is extremely simple. First thing you're going to want to do is remove your coil wire, then unplug the electrical connector. Grab you a nut driver with a swivel and a 7/32 socket, and remove the four 7/32 bolts that retain the coil to the bracket.

    Remove the stock coil. Put your new coil into place. Reattach the four bolts. Plug in your electrical connector. And reattach the coil wire.

    Now, the Performance Distributors Screaming Demon coil is so hot it's not recommended for use with stock plug wires. You'll want to upgrade to something like their Live Wires ignition wires. Plus, you get to open up your spark plug gap to a whopping 65 thousandths on a naturally aspirated application. Now, for more Mustang ignition components, check out
