I have read that before. I put my stock coil back on today. With new wires and plugs. How come the stock coil is better ? Besides the cost of replacing the MSD wires.

People have done datalogs of the MSD coil and shown that it provides very poor spark. This thread, however, is not about the MSD coil. It's about the MSD DIS2, which is a "stand alone" spark system. I've never heard of anyone running it. It seems to me that more people would be using it if it were that good. I figure people are making 600whp on stock coil...so I really don't see the need to spend the time and money to make it work.

Look at it like this.... you can program the stock ignition through the tune to do anything you want it to do.

Not sure if everyone is blind or just bias. But the ford 4 post coil pack and a dis-2 are two different types of ignition. They're not even comparable in real world situations. By far, regaurdless of what your doing with your engine, the dis-2 is a better ignition then what the stock coil pack can do.

I didn't know the stock computer with a tuner, can tune items such as dwell time, inverted or low spark, ignition latency etc....

Now wether its worth it or now, thats a entire different story. I know everytime I've gone to something better then the ford 4 post coil or a better ignition set up my powerband and fuel economy as improved.
