I have a question for all you guru's. I have a 2010 JKU, at about a 120,000 miles my ignition coil went out. I got a P0301 fail and rough idle. I had already swapped the spark plugs and wires. So, I swapped out the ignition coil with one from O'Reilly Auto parts. https://www.oreillyauto.com/detail/b/bwd-3123/ignition---tune-up-16776/ignition-coils-19690/ignition-coil-12493/90c5da72ae86/bwd-4-terminal-ignition-coil/e887/2597566/2010/jeep/wrangler?q=ignition+coil&pos=3. After about three months I get another fault code pulled off the ignition coil pack and the epoxy on the back side was cracked. So, I went to O'Reilly's and replaced it and everything was fine. Well, I drove from Montana to Washington D.C this past week and when I got into Pennsylvania I get another code P0303, so I pull off the coil pack and the epoxy on the back side is all cracked. Luckily I was near a O'Reilly's in Penn. I swapped it out for a replacement since it was under warranty. After I installed it the Jeep ran fine again. Then when I drove back to Montana and got into Helena, my Jeep spits out another P0304 fault code. I pulled the coil pack off and the epoxy was cracked again. So, I swapped it out with another one from O'Reilly's. It is pretty annoying. I have swapped out this coil pack 3 times granted the coil pack was like 57 dollars.

My Question is this, is the Screaming Demon worth the money and upgrade https://www.quadratec.com/products/17610_610X_PG.htm. Oh, by the way on the last two times the ignition coil pack went bad the outside temps where 110+ degrees.

I've been running the Screamin' Demon coil pack and LiveWire setup for a few months and it's been doing great for me.

I appreciate the response. It has been a pain in the you know what. The factory one lasted 7 Years, 120K. I figured I was either going to get the Mopar one next or the Screaming Demon. I figured why not just upgrade it.

It's been working well. Use OEM Champion plugs with a larger gap

I just figured if the Screaming Demon one was better quality, then I would go with it and put my mind to rest.

So, my screamin demon ignition coil and live wires came in. I removed the current ignition coil on my Jeep. It was just replaced 3 weeks ago for the forth time. Here is the difference in build quality and how cheap the Orielly’s brand is. You can see where it keeps cracking. I also did new spark plugs and gapped them to .065. Man the difference in driving is definitely noticeable.

Nice! I think you'll be happy with it. I've been running it for almost 9000 miles now and my MPGs have averaged about 2.5 higher. 👍

Well, so far so good. I have noticed an increase in mpg. Also has a little bit more response.
