Default Re: wrong coil

If by "coil" you are referring to just the coil pack, then it should work.

If you are actually talking about the complete unit (coil pack AND the ignition module), THEY ARE WIRED DIFFERENTLY and you need the Casper's Adapter to make it work correctly. You probably smoked some of the wiring/sensors.
