SHOULDN'T HAVE TOUCHED THE 18 YEAR OLD BOSCH COIL IN THE 1993 SAAB 900 TURBO CONVERTIBLE.
WHAT A P.I.T.A!
PLAN TO EXCHANGE THE ACCEL SUPER STOCK COIL AT LOCAL STORE. THEN RETURN IT IF THAT DOESN'T WORK & PICK UP ANOTHER BOSCH COIL.
IT'S TOO BAD ONE OF THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS CRACKED ON THE ORIGINAL BOSCH COIL WHEN REMOVING IT.

          Installation was simple, my gas milage seems to have improved a bit. Before the new coil, my engine was pinging, it seems to be fine now. Perhaps it is just coincidence, but I would recommend it.

                The coil is a very good product. Installation was quick and easy. The instructions are very well written and easy to follow. The company makes very good products, I have been using Accel products for many years. I used the product in my son's 87 Mazda pickup truck. He loves how his trucks performs and his gas mileage is slightly better.

                      I have a stock 383 Plymouth Sport Fury. I need to replace the coil. Will this work for my application? I've read some reviews and I see something about a ballast or a resistor?? Wouldn't my car be set up for this if it is a replacement coil?

                      • A:

                        It depends:

                        If you are running Points, then YES. It will work as is, but you will find that your points need to be replaced way to frequently. When used with this coil a ballast resistor will extend the life of the points significantly.

                        If you are running Electronic Ignition then it depends on the brand / model. For example: distributors made by 123Ignition require over 1 Ohm of resistance, so this coil with 1.4 Ohms would be fine (and NOT need a ballast resistor).

                        If you are running a different brand (Mallory, Accel, Pertronix, etc.) then you need to check the requirements.

                    • Q:

                      Why is this called a points coil. My 351 was updated to a unilite model distributor that has no points. Will this operate as would a coil that put out over 40,000 volts like the big square yellow on by accel on my car. I wish to open the plug gap to .48 to allow for a better burn. Thanks, Bob

                        I do not believe this will. This is a universal performance coil for points equipped vehicle with a canister-type oil-filled can coil like stated in the description. I do not believe this will work since you have a distributor with no points.
