As far as I know, the coils are all interchangeable. I've swapped out with my 92 Grand Prix 3.1, no problems, ICMs are different though.

WOOHOO!!!! It is alive...it is aaallliiiivvveeee....muhahaha. lol

Found my old coils off of one of my first cars, a 1988 Beretta GT with the 2.8. The looks are just slightly different, but you know what they say, if the shoe fits...
Well it did. Started with the top coil and was going to switch them with the beretta coil one at a time until I found which one was causing probs...got her on the first try, top one. But now, all of a sudden this morning when I first went out to go start it, the temp gauge doesn't work Man, one thing after another...lol

Time to go search the threads to see if I can find where the Temp sensor for the gauge is located...lol

Thanks all for the help!

TIP: On looking for failed coil(*)
I found that, while doing the "plug wire pulling" at the coils, w/IAC unplugged (2 min. Max) & idling that:
  • Pulling a wire off a good coil terminal will result in arcing back to the coil body
    While pulling from a BAD coil terminal will NOT arc back.
    Also, one side of the coil secondary can function, while the OTHER side (different cylinder) is failed.
    I choose to use rubber handled pliers and some rubber gloves to reduce the tickle when plugging wire back onto coil. Cheap thrills
Hope that makes sense.

OOPs.. clicking the wrong buttons.
That temp sensor for the gauge... It should be near the TB, but facing the rear of the engine.
The one nearly under the TB, facing the fender is for the ECM. I have a drawing, but my Photobucket is not liking my browser blocker this morning.

Got a little bored yesterday after the post, and found the problem with the temp sensor. we, uh, kinda snapped it, as in broke. part of the sensor is still connected to the pigtail on the harness...lol, good thing my cost is only $14 for a new one.

Thank you...will keep the info handy for checking coils, I have always done the plug and play option...lol
