Mustang Cobra ignition coils

So ive heard on a few threads here that you can run Cobra coils on the 3.0. Im interested on upgrading to them on my upcoming tune-up. How hard is it to install them? do they just bolt on? What year/model Mustang Cobra do i get the coils from? Thanks.

What he said! I'm running them on the wife's '04 6S 3.0. I made some brackets that use the OEM coil hold down bolt. They work great.

There are more pleasant options. Use a longer bolt and stand off instead of chunk of twisted metal. These are available at most hardware stores. Also bolt with nylok inserted in it will reduce the chances of it coming out.
