Default Coil pack--01 SSEi

Hi all,

Does anyone know what types of coils I have on my 01 SSE9i? I have found a Delphi ones and an AC Delco ones.....I know both companies make GM electronic 'stuff'....Don't see any markings on the original ones on the car..... Any thoughts?

Either should be fine, just steer clear of the MSD coils. Overpriced and known to have issues on the SSEi'*.

So, then the MSD issue isn't just limited to L67'*, the issue will crossover to L36'* because they both have the same ignition system. Correct?

Not sure. Mine worked until I started getting the boost up there. Then I got real bad misfires under load.

Default Thanks Dan---

always good to know little tidbits like that..... I'm a bit surprised though that MSD would be problematic.....always had a favorable impression of them.... But I learned a long time ago that all parts are not created equal and sometimes they just aren't a good fit on certain applications.....That'* one reason I try to stick with OE electrical parts.....I've seen too many issues with aftermarket and electrical.....

In the 10 years that I have owned a 3800, I have only replaced 1 coil pack. But I have replaced more engines. LOL. Aint that right Dan. What engine you on now?
