Default Getting ready to install new spark plug coils

I have a 93 Buick PA Ultra ( supercharged ) and will be purchasing 3 new coils in the next week or two. Accel Yellow or MSD Red ?

I had the MSD coils and I had misfire problems. Heard of several others that had the same problems with MSD. Stock coils are the best.

Upgrade to the series II */c coils, you'll be glad you did. Look for the blue plastic tab on the base to be sure.
