    Bad MSD Blaster coils LS1?

    I installed a set of eight LS1 blaster coils on my 01 Z28. Within 600 miles and two days of each other two have gone out. The engine has mods including cam, intake, TB, headers and a few others so it has been custom tuned as well. Does anyone have an idea on what could be causing the coils to go bad? I think it unlikely that MSD has made a product that would perform so badly so I figure there must be a root cause somewhere else. Thoughts?

    I don't know bro but am glad you posted that because I am/was thinking about getting a set of them and wondering if they are worth it. Anybody else have them installed?

    Can you feel any power difference after installing the blaster coils or just added it for turing?
