Picked up 96 L67 all coils and ICM on mounting plate.

5.64
5.64
8.24

Odd the 8.24 is a replacement that looks exactly like the one we took off Randy'* old 93 and that one also tested 8.24 as well. I find one more and I have a set of 8.24'*. No brand on them.

Default Accel Coils

Interesting... almost all the MSD readings here are higher than the MSD coils I got from Comfycar. And, I've noticed a lot of square MSD coils lately, but the ones I have look just like a stock coil, but red with a MSD sticker. Mine were really matched, though, which I am happy about. These Accel readings are way higher than any readings I've seen before.
Well I have been with my Accel coils for over 5 years and I did test them and got the same results mentioned above. I was going to use the MSD'* but found the Accels to put out 45,000 volts and has a much higher Turn ratio of 75:1, Primary resistance: 0.500 and also Secondary resistance of 8K ohms. So I will stick with my Accels since I have had never had any failures such as the MSD have in the past and MSD'* life expectancy is about 2 years.
