coil, coil packs????

What does that mean?

What MAF did you put on it?

Did you bleed the cooling system?

You either have a coil or coil packs, not both. Does it have a CEL? Any codes? Like Dwayne said, need to make sure the cooling system is bleed good. Air in the system will cause the overheating.
