Find out which pack is bad, and replace with stock. A performance set may use higher voltage, but it won't help you much with a stock car. See this thread:

It's hard to answer your question. I'm still trying to research a bit about it myself. Everyone that has them says yay. everyone that doesn't says nay. I see a bit of a bias... lol
I suppose everyone tends to find ways to like things they invested in and its hard to distinguish between performance gains and the power of suggestion, ie. marketing

I'm guessing you need to replace the coil soon so for now, i'd say just get the OEM coil or perhaps a less expensive after market coil like Wells (can't go wrong with a lifetime warranty)
