Coil pack mounts cracked
I was looking around in my engine bay today, and noticed that every single one of the holes that attached the coil pack to the metal mount are cracked.

This means the coil pack is just sitting there, free to do and move wherever it feels like it.
I think I'm going to get a new coil just to ensure nothing will go wrong in the future.

Which one would be advisable?

I have a 2001 ZX3 with a KN SRI, header, and mild exhaust work.

Is the MSD or Accel pack worth the dollars?
haha, thanks!

Could a mod move this to the Zetec section? Thanks

It's advisable to go with the Motorcraft coil. I tried an ebay coil recently and it was a piece of junk. It was sold as a Motorcraft, but it was a Chinese ripoff.

Um, MSD? MSD Coil pack and Massive 8.5MM MSD Wires..... for like 140? Cannot go wrong if upgrading your coilpack might as well do the wire also and get a nicer engine bay

stock coil and wires work very well , MSD hasnt proved to make any better power

Alright, Motorcraft coil it is then, and maybe upgrading to some Taylor plug wires down the line.

I had an MSD coil pack and the terminals corroded away to nothing after a few years. I got a cheapo Airtex Wells coil pack for like $40 from Rockauto and it's been working fine for a year and a half now. Bosch wires for I think $18 and they're fine.
