Default Coils same as series II GP motor?

I have brand new coils from a Series II GP (98 GTP)
I was wondering if these would work with my 95 SSEI.
They look the same but i'd just like to see if anyone knows.

Thanks

All series 2 3.8 coils should be the same. Many other coils will be as well, however you need to be careful and doublecheck part numbers to ensure that is the case.

yes, and you will also benefit from better spark -the coils for 1997+ supercharged cars are supposedly as good as MSD coils .....which is why I have them on my 1995 SLE SC.

1995 SSEi? Those have the Series I L67...

Would that still work?

Coils are the same design and mounted from 92 1/2 to current.

Other than the 'hotter' 97 and newer L67 coils.

Right, so they not only work better, they fit also.

OLBlueEyesBonne stated the 1997+ cois are as good as MSD coils. Is this an accurate statement? If so, why would one buy MSDs vs the factury replacements (such as GP Sorsen @ Advance Auto)?

Because the MSD coils:

MAY be hotter yet.
Are cheaper than AC Delco coils (not sure what coils you're talking about).
Look cool.

Especially if you laser etch your cylinder numbers on them.

the only advantage of getting the MSD'* are that they would be cheaper than a 97+ L67 coils,

Jwikoff has a couple sets of coils and is testing them
