Default Coil change to MSD

Morning Guys, I have finally got around to working on the coils for my car. In an older post I asked about MSD coils and someone brought to my attention that in 92 there where 2 different kinds of coils, magnavox or the standard delco coils I believe. Well I have checked and I have the standard delco coils and am looking to upgrade to MSD.I need to change 1 coil anyway because one is bad and not firing, so I figured just change them all. I was wondering what the part number would be and how hard these are to change. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

That'* the part number fo rthe ones I bought for my 99, should be the same for yours. And they are stinking easy to replace. Just do one at a time so you don't mix up your wires.

the MSD will give you no performance advantage over the regular stock coils

They are about the same price as new stock coils. They technically do have a bit hotter spark than stock 92 coils, and are very similar to 96+ L67 coils.

Well thanks for the info. Maybe I don't need them then, since I am not boosted anyway, and if it doesn't make a diff. then I guess there isn't much point.

Given the similar price, they have a more efficient spark. If I were buying a new set of coils anyway, it'* what I'd get.
