Exclamation coil pack upgrade question

ok so i been changing out a lot on my old 1992 Bonneville SSE i basically resurrected it i spent a good 1800 on parts and labor like changing out just about everything on the belt side water pump, idler, assembly alternator, etc shocks, most of the ignition system rims, (about to change again though) replaced the hood about to repaint the car again (paints not bad i just want black)

my question now is that i saw this for sale i think my other coil packs are going out becasue im having a hard time keeping my engine from going past 20 and 40 after driving a long distance (e.g. 200+ miles in a day) i remember it did this before i switched out my top coil pack) so im just figuring there all going out at same time. so i found these

MSD Blaster Ignition Coil Packs: 3800 Performance

and i might change these too at same time

PRJ Performance Ignition Wires: 3800 Performance

now my question is can i put these on a series 1 engine?
(website says series 2 and 3)

i have a series 3 engine in my grand prix and i know i can use them on there both engines are almost identical i know theres differences though

awnsers and if i cant use them can you redirect me to ones i can use?

Ya you can put coils off of a Serries II on it. From there you can upgrade to the MSD'* or what ever you want.

The L67 cars have a direct bolt on set up for older series 1'*. There are a lot of write ups on swapping these, and what cars to get them from. Here is what I did.
