Are the square "E coils" any better than a plain Canister type? I have heard that the E-coils provide more current but less voltage.

They generally have a greater amperage output and creat more intense spark for a longer duration.

I dont really know for sure, but I am running a Blaster HVC (stands for High Voltage, High Current according to MSD.) On the other car, it picked up a couple of hudredths in the 1/8 when I switched from a Blaster 3.

I use stock TFI coils on everything now...they are small, light and compact and can be gotten cheap from wreckers. They seem to be all the same on any V8 and domestic Ford 4 and 6 bangers.

E coils are the in thing and all the developement is going that way. The only problem with them I've seen is they don't dissapate heat as well as the old oil filled, therefor fail about 100 times more often. Even in the coil on plug systems where the coil only does 1/8th the work, they fail all too frequently. Just had a Probe in with e-coil in the distributor. Would run a few minutes then die. The coil is not serviced as a seperate part, dealer OR aftermarket. Dealer gets $450.00 for reman distributor! Found a salvage yard "deal" for $125.00. NEAT huh?
