Default MSD COILS

I on my 93' I am planning on getting MSD coils, 8mm wires, and I'm not sure what kind of plugs yet. What I need to know is which coils i need to get. I have the JEGS catalog, I'm just not sure which coils I need to get.
UPDATE!!!

I have decided on the muffler I am going to get. I am taking everyone'* advice and getting the single in/ duel out flowmaster 80 series muffler. I got the sound clips I needed so I could figure out what I wanted. Thanks everyone.

Are those the same ones that PFYC sells for the GP?

I picked up a new set of 8224 MSD from JEG'* back in July when they were all on back order, both at Jeg'* and Summit. Since then, I have had to send them back to MSD in El Paso, Tx. twice, am waiting right now to get replacements back! They take forever. They wouldn't admitt to having any kind of quality control problem, but, like I told the guy at MSD, from now one the OEM ones and a 5.5mm wrench will be in my trunk, to put them on when one of the MSD'* goes bad the third time! It is a pain in the --- to drive home from work 30 miles in rush hour traffic when one of these goes out! Needless to say that I'm not at all impressed with the way that Jeg'* or MSD has handled any of it, one more failure and it'* time to get the cash back! Good Luck!

Well, two of the 3 coils sent to MSD (autotronics) showed up last night, and had the usual test stickers on the bottom, obviously, (i hope) the third one was bad and a replacement is on the way! The included paperwork says nothing other than two coils tested good NOT A WORD mentioned about a third coil! Got to say one thing the customer service is consistent, disappointing! If anyone knows any MSD reps, remind them that if someone has the GM replacement coils that they should keep the OEM coils and a 5.5 mm wrench in the trunk, so they can change them out when the MSD ones take a dump!

There was a rash of bad coils from MSD during their last inventory crunch. I think they were rushing things a bit much. Take comfort in the fact that many of us have good coils.......and have for some time. Good luck!
