I like the "dumbass dunk test" I came up with. My thoughts are if the coil is bad you need to replace it anyway so who cares if it ruins it during the test. If you have the money to immediately replace them, go for it. Pull your coils and slowly drop them one by one in a bucket of water. See bubbles? Got problems. No bubbles = at least you know condensation isn't causing your problem, they may still have too much resistance but you can rule one thing out.

I'm not sure that the wires would look any different but the coils are MSD-8224

will are u sure it was .411 ohms? i got .419 but i was on the 2k setting so i think that is 411ohms right? taylor is supposed to be 350 ohm/foot. So my wires are good. I test the delco and the resistance is much much higher. ON TO THE COILS. ughhhhhh.
