    Default What Coil

    looking to replace the coil on my VP. it has a canister style one atm(MEC718), just wanting to know what to get to give it a bit stronger spark such as a newer style coil, HEC716, GT40 etc etc...

    car has a yella terra charger making 215rwkw's and runs great but a little extra spark can always be good. car has new leads, cap, rotor and plugs too. I don't want to go for a full ignition system, just a coil.

    thanks

    Luke.

    I run a crane ignition system with matching coil in my commy and just a crane coil in my zook, both work well.

    I've got the MSD Blaster 2 coil in my 308 with the standard electronic ignition.

    I like the canister syle look and thats why I went for the MSD coil over the bosch hec716. Theres stuff all difference between the two performance wise.

    My 2 cents.
