Some Bling for my Range Rover

Got a little performance upgrade for the range rover today! I'm going to be testing this set up out on the 4.6 Thor engine in my Range Rover.

I got everything installed. Took about an hour. plugs are gapped to .055 now.

Took it for a quick spin.

WOW! what a difference. i'll post a write up and more info tomorrow. the truck feels like new. it actually has a full powerband and accelerates like a V8 should.

Ignition upgrade on my Range Rover. PICTURES

I thought I'd show some pictures of the parts I got. I've had them in for a few days now. The increase in mid range power is really nice. My intown mileage has gone from 10 mpg to almost 13 according to the onboard computer. Not sure if its really accurate or not. I played off road a little yesterday and noticed on really steep climbs I hardly have to push the throttle down. Its a very nice set up. As with all experimental parts, 4 wires will have to be lenghtend a little bit on the production versions.

This is what I got in the kit. 8-Live Wires (link that explains what they are: http://www.performancedistributors.com/livewire.htm), 2 high performance coil packs, and 8 Autolight double Platinum Spark Plugs gapped to .055, and a tube of dielectric grease.



Here is a quick comparison photo of the old plug wires verses the new ones.



Old Coil packs vs. new.
