I would go with a new or even used stock coil. The current draw of the stock unit is matched to the power transistor on the mounting bracket. The added current required by some of the aftermarket ones can actually cause a failure in another part of the ignition system, at least this has been my experience. The stock setup is hard to beat for function and reliability.
....and a stock ignition is perfectly adequate for anything that you can do to a EA81 engine...i had a stock coil etc on my LPG EA81 and it worked fine... and if anything is going to show up a weakness with an ignition system its LPG
keep it in good nik and you won't have any problems with it

My existing, original coil is not bad at all, but I was troubleshooting starting issues and purchased a few additional parts in case... Will install the new one and keep the original as a spare. However, universal recommendation here is to stay stock.
