The stock coils are more than hot enough even up to 700HP on these engines. As for the Taylors, be sure to check the resistance on each one before installing.
So MSD is just a waste of money? No Real Benefit?

Umm.. Rogue, the 97+ */C Coils are good for 700hp. Those are the coils that you aren't going to see MUCH of a difference from MSD [or any other aftermarket coil manufacturer]. Lakeville, you will see a boost, since your coils aren't as hot as the MSD'*.. Especially if you have the original coils.

Your right, for some reason I was thinking he had an 00 car. Good catch.

MSD are cheaper then stock replacements. Might as well use them.

My 8mm Beldins are 99% the same as my old taylors, but have a lifetime warranty.

And cheaper too!

Of course you could use the junkyard 97+ */C coils.. but I know MSD'* will out perform a junkyard piece. And like it has been stated, the MSD'* are cheaper [amazingly].

Not really, I see you live in MI, not sure really where you are at tho. In MI you can get coils from GM junk yards with 0 miles on them for less then $40 (all three). Ryan got some for $20 brand new.

the coil packs are the same (as far as I can tell) from my Bonne to my Regal, matter of fact when I was trying to trace down my ignition misfire I even swapped the old stock coils from my Bonne onto my Regal (because they were known good coils....MSDs I bought were more for bling and "upgrade" than purpose) As for internals they may differ but they bolt right up and dint change anything with my ignition problem (which turned out to be a bad plug!!!!!) But I have been told that unless a coil goes bad (somewhat uncommon) you dont really need to replace or upgrade them.
