Default Coil On Plugs & Whipple HO

I have the Whipple HO kit installed on my car and wondered if the COP's are worthwhile upgrading?

Is there a real difference between the 3 of these brands?


***Accel Super Coil On Plug Kit


***GMS Ford 3V Pro-Series Coil Pack


***MSD Blaster Coil On Plug

It seems as though the GMS are much more expensive than the other manufacturers.

Hey guys, I'd love to hear thoughts on COPs for N/A cars too. Especially long term perceptions. I've heard mixed reviews: some place these in the TB spacer category while others rave about them.



2006GTMike, did you purposefully leave the Weapon X coils off your list? They advertise being a direct coil on as opposed to the other brands coild near design.

Yeah, the difference is that the GMS coils WILL fail on you eventually. It will be annoying at first. One coil will fail, and GMS will happily replace it for you. Then another, then another... until you want to stuff them down the throat of the first Granatelli employee you can get your hands on.

Save your money. The stock COPs are good to at least 490rwhp.

Nine..hit it right on the head, I also have not heard good things about GMS COPS or products, I sorry but not going to apologize. Anyhow, from I have read Weapon X cops are the best way to go...

I put the Granetelli Hot street coils on mine due to suffering from spark blow out after the Whipple install. To answer your question, YES, a worth while upgrade.

Only COPs ive installed were GMS's motto blue was the model? Not sure it was 3 years ago, anyway they have had no problems but I agree there is no need for them on an N/A car and very rarely needed for a blower car.
