Re: After market ignition coil

Depends on what ignition system you're running, but assuming you're using a dizzy pretty much any single coil system coil.

Stock coil will be more than enough.

I just want a normal looking coil to mount on firewall and get rid of the one that mounts above valve cover.

Re: After market ignition coil

** You can fab a bracket for the stock coil and mount it, or modify the stock bracket to fit..

My 2 cents... aftermarket coils for a stock system = waste of $$.

You won't notice any difference unless you want the "look" of a goofy red/yellow/blue/black unit.

The only time a high output coil makes a difference is when you have continuous high RPM operation - as in racing.

I remember wanting the HUGE Accel yellow coil.
That thing was almost as big as a FOOTBALL!!
I bought one and thought it looked cool on the firewall of my 66 Chevelle.
What a DUMBAZZ.
I've learned a little since then.
