As for the rough idle, could it be something else? Vacume leak or whot not? You can see if it is one particular cylinder thats causeing the problem. Leave the engine idle, and pull off the plug wires from the dizzy one by one. If you pull one off and the engine smooths out, you've found the problem cylinder, if none of them make a difference, then you've got a problem somewhere else. Also make sure you check the gap. I've pulled some out of the box that had very little gap, and others have had huge gaps in them, so you should always check the gap first.

I didn't re-gap mine because the SuperStock coil allows you to gap them up to .050.
Everyone recommended the new coil (Accel #8140), since they're only $30-$40, and does a better job than the stock one.

If you have a bad plug, pulling the wire won't show it. Try moving the plug to a different cylinder.
A dirty fuel filter can cause a miss.
