Coils

My stock coils are getting weak and wanted some input on what to replace them with. I will not be replacing them with oem plugs for 2 reasons. The stock ones are WAY to expensive and I'll be putting these replacements on a built, bored, and supercharged engine running 25psi on the track and stock coils simply won't do.

My cars got 80k on it now and It's right around their expiration point

Re: Coils

Stock would still be my choice. But if you are determined not to run stock then MSD would be the way to go

The oem won't provide enough spark for what I will be running. Plus they are ridiculously expensive. $800+ for replacement oems is alot. I was looking at the msd but the accels are alot cheaper and that's my big point right now

Yea they obviously aren't as good but if they really do a decent job I'm happy with it.

Where are you getting 800$ for coils? i just got on late model resro and a set of 8 original ford c.o.p are only 10$ more than accels but personally building building a engine to the specs you are you are better spending the 400 on msd

Hell yes. You have to look for it. They changed how the layout was but it's still on there. I found it since.

Do coils lose strength? Like just get weak? A buddy of mine was telling me they can't get weak they just go out and I wasn't sure.

Re: Coils

They just go out. And the stocks are not 800 for the set. And if you are building a motor why skimp on possibly the most important/most common failing piece?? The stock ones will put out plent of power. Guys running 800-1000rwhp still use stock ones. If your dead set not to then like I said go with MSD. If you buy excel you will be disappointed. As stated above they are cheap for a reason. I wouldnt put them on my car if they were FREE.

Re: Coils

$42.99 at Carquest for stock replacement. I sell them all the time that are as good if not more reliable than the originals.

I've got a bad coil right now, but its just giving a weak spark causing a misfire,.but its very inconstant. It didn't always misfire. A buddy (who owns his own shop) and I checked then yesterday and you can see that the one in cylinder 5 is producing a weak spark compared to the other 7. so yes, you can have a coil that had just gotten weak and not produce the spark need consistently.
