NO. It's usually easier due to the mfgs wiring and plugs matching but any good high output performance coil will work. If your using a multi strike box like a MSD unit it's best to use the larger finned heat sinked coils to deal with the extra heat generated by the extra coil cycles. I wanted to go electronic with my 74 Vet but wanted to keep the mechanical tach drive distributor so I used a Mallory conversion kit, Crane epoxy finned hi po coil, MSD 6al Box, MSD cap & rotor, Taylor 8mm wires and Accell plugs. The motor doesn't know the difference and is happy.

I guess that I should have been more descriptive in my original thread because I'm using a msd ready to run distributor. I'm not sure if that makes a difference between a "box type" unit or not.

Any 45/50,000 output coil will work. I would prefer using the MSD just for ease of instillation but I'm a happy MSD customer. The box units are an add ons that are not necessary for normal operation. If you use a Blaster2 coil and later want to use a MSD 6 series type box the blaster would still work fine. The big finned coils are for higher output racing type ignition systems. Sorry for any confusion that I may have created.
