Re: Coils

I run an Accel in mine and have found it great, fixed up a rough idle problem I had (probably because the stock one was stuffed anyway). Accel advertise 35% more energy and 20% more voltage than stock, all the other major brands should be similar I would think.

Re: Coils

Im using a MSD blaster coil, cost me $100 from Online Performance Autos, cant say i noticed any gains in performance though.
If I changed the plugs at the same time and made a back to back comparison between the old and new coil I might have seen a positive gain in performance.

Re: Coils

You need electronic digital electronics to supply higher voltage to coil in the first place like msd, from memory they supply 500 volts to coil.But 45,000 volts still seems about max otherwise coil life drops.But with higher volts to coil sure makes a healther spark actually lots of them!!!!Sure gets your attention when you get a zap I tell you, adrenalin rush !!!!
