I am wondering if anybody knows what the coil output voltage of the ABA style coil and the canister style Bosch "Blue" coil are? I am currently running the standard style Bosch coil, but I have the ABA one available.
92 Corrado OBD2 ABA Powered by MS3Pro
M & L EFI Performance
My MS is setup for spark control, but I really haven't looked at it too closely to see if it has the BIP in it, since I am using an MSD box to fire the coil. And the one I have already has a bad ignitor, so that is no real problem. I may try it and see if I can notice a diff. As it is a dd and not a high performance setup, there may be no noticeable difference.

Went out the the garage and removed the ignitor in preparation for install, looks like I need a newer style of wires, as mine will not connect to the coil, the terminal is different than what I have. Then that would mean a new style cap and might as well throw in a rotor too. It'll just have to wait. And I was thinking of mounting it on top of the air-box where the CIS fuel dizzy used to be. (Won't that confuse people!)
I installed the coil (with a neat mounting location I think) and the car runs no worse and it might possibly be slightly better. It seems to pull a little better when lugging at low rpm's in second and third gears, from 1200-2500 rpm when I just don't feel a downshift is needed. I have a road trip of about 5-600 miles to do in the next couple of days, so I'll see if mpg's change much.
And I'll post a picture when photobucket finishes site maintenance.
No, not really, but I'll take it if there is any improvement. It feels like there is some, but that could just be all in my head.
Here are some pics of where I mounted it, some of you might get a kick out of it.Others might just be confused, as some have thought I had some weird CIS/MS hybrid going on. This location keeps it away from the high heat of the exhaust to help prevent insulator cracks and easy replacement if ever needed. Although the canister one has been on the car many, many years.
