      I put the MSD coils in back in January of '08, and posted the results back then. Ran them until last July for over 28,000 miles with no issues. In a moment of weakness and bad diagnostics, I went...

      You can ground the coil cases, it shouldn't cause any problems, just don't ground the trigger wire.

      Adhesive for the coils or insulation for the wires & terminals? The terminals need insulated because they're so close to the bolts & bracket. I used Permatex Right Stuff to insulate the wires from...

      If you have a volt meter that checks diodes you can test the ICM like it's three transistors. Check each trigger wire against terminal 15 and ground. I don't know what the numbers mean but all...
