Is the coil on your car (MSD) one of those "high vibration" coils?

I just want to make sure that everybody here knows that you have to mount these oil filled coils vertically, otherwise you can expect them to burn up. That means that you can't put them in the stock location because the stock location mounts them horizontally. If you want to mount the coil horizontally then you need to get a high vibration coil. Those coils are epoxy filled so that they can be mounted in any direction.
Whats your source on that info? So does that mean the factory coils in cars with coils mounted horixontally are epoxy filled?

1) go to http://store.summitracing.com/
2) click on "Ignitions & Electronics"
3) click on "Ignition Coils"
4) click on "
MSD Blaster 2 Ignition Coils"
5) click on "More Details >> " and a new window will pop open.
6) in the new window, click on "TECHNICAL"
Then read and you will see that it says "Do not mount these coils horizontally or upside down. The oil will not sufficiently cover the windings for cooling purposes and the coil may overheat."
I also called Summit Racing to verify and it is true that you cannot mount these coils horizontally. So I paid $10 more and got the high vibration (epoxy filled) coil. I am pretty sure that the same goes for the accel superstock too because it is very similar to the msd blaster. I think I also remember reading about this in the instructions for my coil. Check your instructions and it will tell you how to mount it.
