DUI’s S.O.S. coils provide 56,000 volts more spark energy. That means more power, better throttle response, and improved fuel economy. Like baseballs legendary Sultan of Swat, Babe Ruth, the Sultans Of Spark (S.O.S.) LS ignition coils pack a big wallop. Each coil produces 7,000 more volts under load than OE coilsa total of 56,000 volts more spark energy versus a stock ignition. That extra voltage allows you to open spark plug gaps up to .065 inch. The larger gap exposes a hotter spark in the combustion chamber for an increased burn of the fuel mixture, resulting in more horsepower, better throttle response and fuel and smoother idle.
The S.O.S. coils are potted in thermal epoxy for improved heat transfer and vibration resistance. They have brass terminals for improved conduction and resistance to corrosion, are fully compatible with flash devices and programmers, and fit in OE coil brackets for easy installation. Coils come in sets of eight.
Most 1999-2013 GM trucks and SUVs with LS engines (including Flex Fuel vehicles) and 2010-13 Camaro; The coils can also be used on LS engines in street rod, classic truck, musclecar, etc. engine swaps.

Question by Mic B : How do you exactly “talk to a lawyer”? I hope this isn’t too dumb of a question, but I’m sure I’m not the only one that feels this way. So many people say “talk to a lawyer”. Does that mean just searching the net for a random lawyer to pick their brain? Is talking to a lawyer free? Is it possible to just get consultation from a lawyer without actually having them representing you on some kind of case? Best answer:
Answer by lahockeyg
when someone suggests you talk to a lawyer you need to find a lawyer who specialized in your issue. Best to call the state bar or local bar in your area and they will refer you to the correct type of lawyer you might need. Next, you call the lawyer to set up a consultation…many will do those for free without making you sign a retainer agreement.
