High performance ignition coil

I've searched with no luck. How much would an accel or MSD ignition coil and MSD wires help out ? Would they be worth the $120 it would cost for parts ?

depend on what mods you have done or are going to do...............totaly stock .............you will gain more from a clean air filter, or a better air filter system. for probably close to the same price.

I just went through this backchannel with someone else - not 20 minutes ago...

Short answer - No. The OEM ignition setup makes all the spark energy a production engine would need, so spend the money somewhere else (opening up your intake and exhaust, for instance.)

If you were doing a stroker, it would depend on how much you upped your compression - if you got silly, then it would help. However, there are many strokers out there running with OEM ignition setups, and not having any trouble (even a few passing the Air Police out here!)

If you were going to add a supercharger, I'd suggest upping your ignition as well - more air = more fuel = needs more spark.

A "blown stroker?" I'd consider an igntion upgrade mandatory.

However, if you're still a stocker, there are better places to spend $120.
 
From voice of experience, No, it really doesn't make that big of a difference. I have a '97 with the MSD coil, MSD wires, and a Firepower Cap/Rotor, think I have the plugs gapped to like .06, stock is like .035 for mine. I noticed a bigger mileage and power difference from my intake system than my ignition system. As far as quality parts go I would say go for it, can't beat MSD or Accel, I work at a parts store and these parts are worth spending the little extra cash on. Reliability in harsh conditions is what you really want to aim for.
