Aftermarket coil that fits and looks stock

Gid day all

I'm getting pretty good mileage from my EFI 86 5.0 litre but figure I can do even better with some aftermarket ignition parts. On my Mopar I use an MSD blaster II coil, plugs gapped out to .055, Accel 8mm wires, Jacobs extra thick cap and rotor and an MSD-5 (cause I'm close to stock and too cheap for an MSD-6).

My question is; does someone make a coil for the EFI 5.0 litre that looks like a stock one(not like an old tube style coil) and mounts in the stock position ? Any suggestions or comments on cheap alternatives to an MSD-5 or other ignition components that up'd mileage for anyone would be great too.

Thanks kindly

Malcolm

Hey thanks Gustafson

That's exactly what I was looking for and the price looks right too. MSD doesn't seem to list a MSD control unit for the 86 EFI 302 engine. Does the old system not accept control boxes like these ? I was kinda set on using an MSD-5 unit.
