Default DIY: External Coil (no Aftermarket parts required)

For all you people who cant (or dont want to) get hold of a PowerTower. This method uses only OEM parts, a bolt and some resin. If you can spare some time and a Dizzy cap, you can do it!

It allows you to upgrade your coil to a more powerful external coil. Like a bosch 55.000 or sumthing.

This is also an option instead of replacing the standard coil when it goes. BTW REP boy, if you do it right, you wont get your ass zapped. And why would you get zapped, if youre dumb enough to play with live ignition components, you are asking to get fried. MSD is more money.

I think one of the import mags did a write-up not too long ago on this. Used the same mod to wire up an external MSD coil. Looks good when done right.

Yeah they did. But that used a special part that not everyone can get hold of. But i wrote up an option on how to do this with no aftermarket parts.

I did this last year before that article.
