OEM would probably be a small fortune and since I am at work I can't look it up.

I had to modify the cable from the coil to the dizzy but it fitted like a charm otherwise. I never measured resistence of the coil, so I recommend you do so before permanently fitting it in your subaru.

I used what subiemech85 recommended in his post re: engine health.
"check ignition system for proper performance, change cap and rotor to napa premium made in japan, switch to accel 8140c coil -- but keep the old one, and the #1 thing to do is put in NGK BPR6EY-11"

What brands are ok what brands do you stay away from?
Do a search on "jegs coil" and go to my post under the thread "Coil problems..what's going on?". It will give you good info on what coils to get and avoid.

The new Accel coils are terrible quality. I had one in my XT Turbo... lasted two months before giving up the ghost.
Whats wrong with accel?

i'd stick with stock. aftermarkets aren't as reliable. at the very least, get one and keep stock in the trunk. or just keep a spare in the trunk. if a couple work for people convinces you, then go ahead and get one, it's not like they all fail. but in general the aftermarkets don't have a good record. you can search here for lots of info, i've done it before and it's always convinced me to stick with stock...eventhough i want something new.
I've been using my coil from Jegs' for a while now, but I keep the stock coil and the necessary tools in the trunk to stick it back on, just in case. I've been burned by the yellow Accel, the red MSD and the Pertronix. All made overseas, I found out later. The Jeg's (part #555-40105 red $19, 555-40100 chrome $20) is made in the USA. They also sell MSD, no mention if made here or elsewhere, for $39 - $50 depending on model.
