Why? You would need a pcm as well to run the coil drivers, new cam sensor etc.

Coil packs have a stronger spark and are higher in the motor . They are have less moving parts too .

Yes you can do it, but the pre 2000 don't have the threaded holes for the coil packs, and you will need the 2000 sensors/pcm/and harness.

Yeah I'm thinking of and HEI too and I might go that route. My 97 is hard to start and I'm going to go through the motor soon. So I was thinking of updating to a newer ignition system.
Thanks guys
