    The stock coils will begin to break down under extreme acceleration. Thou shalt invest in an ignition scope! The MSD coils deliver complete combustion which becomes more and more important the more horsepower the engine creates. This is mainly due to the fact that with more horsepower yields more fuel requirements. Ditch the stock coils, you can sell them on ebay for around $90 and the $90 can go towards a set of MSD coils. You can get the coils brand new in box on ebay for about $470 including shipping. This puts you out about $360 for the MSD coils. You will enjoy better throttle response and way better fuel economy specially during racing! Good Luck in whatever choice you make. Thanks. -Tom.

    Tom- I'm not calling you a liar, but I've seen too many 600+rwhp LSx cars (my own included) running stock coils to believe that the coils "break down" under acceleration. The MSD coils may smooth out the idle a little...I'll buy that, but show me some dyno or trap speed evidence that the MSD coils offer better performance.
    You can buy a dry nitrous kit for $360 (100rwhp).
    You can buy a set of Pacesetter headers for $360 (25rwhp).
    You can buy a LS6 intake for...well $375 (10-12rwhp).
    I just can't see buying the MSD coils that have yet to be independently verified to show a 1rwhp gain...
    If you have proof otherwise, I will gladly eat crow and apologize. B

    The only advantage I have heard with the MSD coils is throttle response.

    True or not?? I don't know.
    I make 531 at the wheels with stock coils.

    Yah. I hear that Jenro's is still happening. I've never been, tho... Check out tidewaterracing.com and ask around. I'm usually out stirring up trouble on Saturdays...

    Stock coils aint red. And they dont have a cool logo on them. The logos worth, like 25 HP at the wheels right?
    Seriously though, the stock coils are good for just about anything most people will throw at them.
    The Coil Near Plug ignition system took care of alot of issues that earlier ignition systems had. Primarily coil saturation. And now with coil dwell time being adjustable via tuning software, you can now "jack up" the ignition output too!
    The MSDs will/can smooth out the idle a bit, especially with a really big cam. They will also decrease emissions slightly due to the multi strike @ idle.
    At some point, the stock coils will be insufficient. But at that point the coils are the least of your worries.
