E-Coil vs. Oil Filled Coil

Is anybody using an aftermarket E-coil & is it better/worse for a mildly built street motor than the old style oil filled? Any brand preference?

I like MSD coils, I think there are pluses and minuses to both types of coils.
Personal preference is the old style oil filled

I have had good luck with the M.S.D. and Pertronix coils. I have had good results with the e coil and the oil filled coils. As a good rule of thumb, always match the coil and distributor if possible as per the manufacturer's recommendation, you will have a lot less hassles to diagnose a problem or facilitate a return with a defective unit or sub unit. The manufacturer will always fault another manufacturers part as the problem until you change it to their recommended part! I rarely see coil failures at all within the 1st 30,000 mi.!
