Default Another question about the Delco Ignition

I read and reread the threads on this swap, and didn't catch it, my question is: The swap requires the mounting plate and new coils, but what about the ICM? I have a '90 Bonneville w/3800, do I need to swap the ICM as well?

Thank you,

Yes, the Magnavox and Delco ICMs are two completely different modules. That is the heart of the system. You can get a Delco ICM off of any H-Body from 93-99, however 97+ with the Supercharged Engine has hotter [better] coils. If you don't want aftermarket coils, those are the ones to get. 92 also had the Delco, however it also had the Magnavox. So be careful if pulling from a '92.
