Question on Accel super coil

My brother in law would like to put an accel super coil on his 258. All of the ingintion is stock. His idea is with more power going through the cap and rotor there is less of a chance of watering out. My question is will it hurt anything or just wear the cap and rotor out faster.

It won't hurt a thing. Not even the cap and rotor. He will notice a power gain. However He will be much better off doing the TR upgrade and going with the TFI coil. It will only cost alittle more, but he will be much happier.

Re: Question on Accel super coil

Thanks for the info. He has never had a problem with the ingintion except for the stupid push on connector on the coil rusting up. I have the accel coil so it wont cost him a dime except for maybe dinner or something. I agree the TR upgrade is better but his idea is if it works leave it.

Re: Question on Accel super coil

Just my .00005 cents worth but I don't think those "super coils" are anything more that a standard oil filled coil with nice paint/stickers. I put one on my 304 w/stock ignition system in good working order and I did not notice any improvements or advantage, except my wallet being $35.00 lighter (I was much less educated than). Anyway, if it's free it won't hurt anything but don't expect it to do much other than add some color under your hood (mine matched the yellow color of my Jeep : )
I recently did the Teamrush/TFI Upgrade and saw almost a 30% increase in rpms when I punched the gas. Not sure exactly what this means but at least I saw a change. Sorry for the long-winded answer. Regards,

Re: Question on Accel super coil

i will say that i wouldn't pi$$ on an accel coil if it was on fire. i have had 3 and all three went bad. 2 were the standard super stock coils and the last was a super coil that literally blew up! i have used a standard coil, msd coil, and now a tfi coil and none have caused me any problems. maybe it was just a freak occurance that i got 3 bad ones but i doubt it. my opinion is stay away from accel coils.
