Seems like a good product.Has increased gas milage on my 1995 F150,5.0L truck by 2-3 mpg on the highway. My only beef is that the unit is made in [*].I would have paid a bit more for a made in USA model.Otherwise good value and performance for the money. Pop in replacement for the Ford coil which was rusted and deformed badly,but still working,though not at full efficiency it seems. Beware when leaving spark plugs in the 5.0L engine too long, as the plug holes tend to rust up,making removal difficult without the disaster of broken plugs.We needed to sandblast out the holes BEFORE removing plugs to allow a wrench to fit fully on the old plugs.So replace those plugs often!

coil does not have the notches on it to secure coil wire. Leaves the possibility of coil wire backing off coil. Leaving you without spark.
Could easily make your own notches if you wanted. That is what I did but it will probably void the warranty on it.

    Comments about MSD Ignition Ford TFI Coil:

    Replaced the original equipment coil in a 1989 town car with the msd coil. The car no longer misfires. It now idles smooth and never stalls.I would recommend this coil to anyone who has a ignition problem or who wants an upgrade over stock.

      Only issue that I saw was that it doesn't "click fit" to the ignition coil wire like the OE did. But that is not a huge deal.

          Comments about MSD Ignition Ford TFI Coil:

          I put this on my Ford F-150 Lightning. It sounds really good. I have only had it on for a few weeks so I can't speak towards the performance yet. It was a perfect fit & had good instructions as well. The price was right, I have spent 100+$ just for stock oem coils on a motorcycle.

            This was an easy 4 bolt, 2 plug installation. Took about 10 minutes. Engine feels stronger and I am consistantly getting .3 more MPG.

                  Again, the Streetfire line maximizes quality while minimizing the hit on your wallet. Great upgrade, well worth the extra money compared to a stock replacement coil.
