I would not touch any Accel product with a 20 foot pole. They have historically given me nothing but trouble. Caps, wires, etc... ALL GARBAGE IMO. I've tried them on two separate cars with the same result. Garbage. In my current car, the cap failed and it wouldn't even start. Drove me nuts.

I'm not alone. I know that carsavvycook has had the same experience.

Go with Standard brand components or stock.

Is your current module bad, or are you having ignition problems?

If not, you know the old saying: "If it ain't broke,..." :p

BTW, I've only ever used Accel coils (one came to me in a trade, one of those huge "Super Coils", the other was on a V6 GMC w/4.3L engine). Had no issues w/either.
