Nah, something else happened. Did you unplug the coil wires themselves. Or accidentally pull on the pig tail that plugs in. Or it was just a coincidence that the coil took a crap right then. But running it with a plug wire off wont kill it. A lot of guys , check for spark this way. ( not with the spark plug out of the head)
Use a spare plug.

yeah i know ive done it hundreds of time ive built a good 4 motors now i know what im doing but yeah just the one channel on the coil died .. i checked it with my spark plug tester all worked but the channel that wasnt pluged in right .. .. but the car was running really slow and gett bad mpg sense i bought it so maybe the coil was already crapping out !

Yup. That would be my guess. Just a coincidence . Coil was on its way out. And you pushed it over the edge. LOL Murderer !![gunfire]

Nice !!! How come I never come across deals like this. Its in great shape. And if the dent in the sub doesnt effect anything, I wouldnt even worry about it. You could drive that 2k $ car for a long time. Good Luck with it...
