Whats the advantage to upgrading the ignition coil in my 86 gl wagon? Ea82. I was just curious, i was reading on the 'online repair manual' thing on the 80s subaru website and they had a section on the thing. I was looking on ebay and i can get one for like 10 bucks, so if it does anything worthwhile, and it seems like an easy install, why not. So whats the point?

Thanks

From what I have read on the board here,upgrading the coil is a complete waste of time and money. And, can actually lead to ignition trouble down the road. Best to stick with a stock one.

+1 this isn't the part to put any upgrade money into. you can search and read ALL about it on here, it's been discussed before.
