Default Touched my coils, got shocked!!!!!

OK So I have MSD coils (non-COP) and when I touch the coil pack while leaning on the fender with the other hand I get shocked..... I thought it was my plug wires last time so I changed my wires. So I do it again and shocks me again.... Are there any gounds off the wiring harness I should be looking at? Is it supposed to be doing this?

Not sure about why the case of the coil would shock you. That should never happen. Funny story though.

It happened to me once. I had a bad wire. How old are your wires?

LMFAO Now that's funny! You may have a issue with the coil itself. I'd call MSD and ask them about it.

Mist your running engine with water at night in the dark and see if you've got electrical leaks.

Make sure if you work with it use one hand and stick your other hand in your pocket or something so the shock doesnt go through your heart.

Doesn't go through your heart?? Dude, when electricity goes through you, most of the time, it always has a way out.

Um yeah, it's not voltage that kills you it's current that kills you.
