Default Part # for MSD coils?

I think I fouled my plugs because two of my coils are seriously corroded, and probably not flowin' power to the plugs like they should. I called Summit, but they only listed them up to '96. What part number are they, and should I get MSD wires to go with them?

I don't think you need the wires but they sure look nice with the coils. But the p/n on the MSD packageing of my coils is 8224. Your could always order from pyfc.com thats where I got mine from.

Jegs has them cheaper, and probably summit too. Compare prices and shipping between them and PFYC ( www.grandprixstore.com ).

That part number is correct. 8224:

http://store.summitracing.com/egnsea...5&autoview=sku (cheaper than PFYC and faster shipping, free shipping if I recall)

https://www.jegs.com/webapp/wcs/stor...tegoryId=17379 $44.99 each. Also cheaper than PFYC.

Thanks Bill. I pulled the plugs out last night, and they're fine, but the posts were so corroded (again!) that spark wasn't going to them, so I guess I better get the new ones coming pretty soon! What wires do you reccomend?

Belden Premiums from NAPA. Taylor has a bad rep here, and the monster MSD'* only offer increased insulation, not better performance.

If Belden is good enough for INTENSE'* cars, they're good enough for me. I have them on both cars and am very happy with them.

PERSONALLY, i would not wast the time or the money on coils Pratt....i would invest in a good set of AC Delco, or Beldin Wires

The Accel YELLOW replacement coils for ours have a BAD reputation here. Of the only three sets I know of used here (in the past), two of those sets failed at least one coil in the first 30 days.
