Default Coil Pack interchangablilty..

In a local junk yard is many late 80'* early 90'* Oldsmobiles, pontiacs, and Buicks with the 3800, as long as its not the magnavox setup, i should be able to snach one from one of those cars right? I need it to put inplace of one that burnt out, im takin my MSD out when the car sells.

The coils will swap, but the ICM may not.
