dunno if thats the best place to buy it, but u can get ur msd coils from there, btw, my understanding is that the coils on the s2 3.8 produce the same performance as the MSD brand coils, so it probly isnt worth the money if u have a 95+ na bonneville or a 96+ bonneville

Any "speed shop" that has not heard of MSD does not deserve a penny from you, nor the title "speed shop."

Try Jeg'* or Summitt Racing.

Mostly incorrect.

The MSD coils are HOTTER than the 97 and newer L67 coils SLIGHTLY. They are a slight improvement over all L36, S1 L67, and L27 coils.

But it'* not a performance upgrade. If your coils are in good shape, it'* purely a waste of money.

I have them, because I had one fail and another weak.

Two members in the last 4 years have run the Accel. Both failed within 60 days.

I have no knowledge or experience of the Jacobs. If they LOOK like the Accel, you can do the math.

Just get the S2 L67 coils, nearly as good output wise and more durable and probably cheaper.
