See if this part fits a specific vehicle.

Check Vehicle Fit

The blaster coils share the same special windings and high voltage output but do not include a ballast resistor. When you are using an MSD Ignition control, the ignition is responsible for delivering the voltage to the coil so a ballast resistor is not necessary.

Product Features:
  • Low resistance and improved turns ratio produces a powerful spark for improved performance
  • Special windings and high voltage output; does not include a ballast resistor
  • Sturdy metal housing is finished in red
  • OBD II and CARB approved; legal for use in all states; D-40-37

JUNK

Comments about MSD Ignition Blaster 2 Coil:

THIS PIECE OF JUNK DIDN'T LAST 6 MONTHS ON A TRUCK THAT WAS DRIVEN LESS THAN 1000 MILES IN THAT 6 MONTH TIME FRAME. I HAD TO PUT THE 3 YEAR OLD ACCEL COIL BACK ON THAT THIS MSD JUNK REPLACED....THANK GOD I SAVED THE OLD ONE. NOW THE REAL KICKER IS THAT THERE IS NO WARRANTY FROM MSD...HMMM...WONDER WHY? MSD, YOU HAVE LET ME DOWN ONE TOO MANY TIMES OVER THE YEARS. NEVER AGAIN WILL YOU HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO LEAVE ME STRANDED.

        Comments about MSD Ignition Blaster 2 Coil:

        very easy to hook up. no problems what so ever. i got it very cheap too. i was just gonna get the msd replacement coil from msd to mount in the stock location but i got this one for such a great deal i couldn't pass it up. along with this coil i am also using a msd cdi, msd wires, ngk g-power plugs and for a blazer xtreme thats supposed to get 23 mpg hwy back in 2003, i can get 27-30 on the hwy with 231,000 miles. i have never had any problems with msd products. sometimes they can be a little bit expensive but very worth it.

          Comments about MSD Ignition Blaster 2 Coil:

          First of all, examine the coil carefully before leaving the store. Unfortunately,my coil was slightly damaged so I returned the original for a refund, but purchased another locally. I've bought two, the first one used on a project ride-95 Geo Tracker with a Chevy 4.3 V6 swap. The Blaster2 made all the difference in the world on this ride. Second Blaster 2 I purchased was used on an 87 Toyota SR5 Turbo pickup to replace a bad oem coil, it worked great & this was the only part I replaced. Got 5 more MPG's on the last 2 tanks of gas and there is a noticable increase in acceleration. Seriously considering replacing the other ignition parts with MSD parts to increase the power even more. Also, compared to OEM coil/ I saved over $60 buying the MSD from Advance. Plus, I saved even more by ordering on-line using one of the promo codes & picking it up @ my local store and didn't have to wait for delivery..

            Comments about MSD Ignition Blaster 2 Coil:

            I installed this coil about 2 months ago, replacing an older MSD coil that I had lost oil and was getting VERY hot. It performs better than the old coil did when it was working properly, and stays fairly cool. I've bought the cheapo type coil before, and can say that there is a big noticeable different in spending the extra $25 for this coil. I bought a cheap coil before buying this one, and there was probably about a second difference in 0-60 time. With the MSD Blaster 2 coil, my 1973 Ford 460 engine will pull my 5400 pound pickup 0-60 in under 7 seconds. If I remember correctly, MSD rates the Blaster 2 coil at 45,000-50,000 volts.

            I started to tighten down the nut on the terminal and the stud broke in half...not at the base...half way down the stud. I did not over tighten it and it was not cross threaded. I was shocked...no pun intended. MSD products are not what they used to be.

                    I have a 1991 Dodge van with electronic ignition. Do I need to install a Ballast resistor with this and can I mount it horizontal or does it have to be mounted vertical? I do plan on adding more at a latter date.

                      Hi Chee, good question! This Blaster Coil Kit is intended to be used with an MSD Ignition. If installing on a stock, points style ignition system, a 0.8 ohm ballast resistor or resistor wiring must be installed.
