    Msd coil pack?

    My car currently has MSD ignition system. It was installed by the previous owner. I have been having a misfire issue that occurs randomly. after changing the plugs and wires it got alot better but still occurs intermittently. I am pretty sure it is a coil pack because one of them is split open, exposing the electronics to the air. I want to know if I should bother replacing all the packs with msd ignition coils (they are $100 apiece) or the oem coils which are $40 apiece. If it is just a small difference I would rather go with the oem as $800 is alot to spend on coils. Does MSD coils make a big difference in power?

    OEM coils will work just fine.

    Unless your engine is fully built(Heads/cam/intake/forced induction), then just go with the OEM coils.
