Wow is all I can say! This coil made an extreme difference in performance and economy. I gained about 57 miles per gallon WITH my foot in it. The car also gained 1500 horsepower. This is the best coil ...

Will these ignition products (msd coil, 9mm plug wire set, distributor cap) work in my 5L 1984 Thunderbird also?? I can't find performance products for that engine anywhere else.


  • Unfortunately the MSD TFI Performance Coil will only fit 94-95 5.0 Mustangs. All the parts we carry will only fit Ford Mustangs.


Helpful (0)

what is the voltage on stock coil? what is the voltage on msd coil?


  • The stock coil voltage for 86-93 5.0s is 38,000 volts and the peak voltage for the MSD TFI Performance Coil is 44,000 volts.

Is it necessary to change the spark plug gap when installing?


  • Hello! With this MSD TFI Performance Coil it is not necessary to change plug gap. Simply unplug old coil and plug in new coil!

Do I need any accessories for it. Do I require a hardness or will this msd product go over the factor coil once removed?


  • The MSD was a direct connect. However, I did not keep the stock spark plug wires. The electrical wire harness fits. I did not find any improvement with this coil. The stock coil gave a better and noticeable performance.

Do I need to change my plug wires with this? Will it melt my wires if they are not performance wires


  • I've heard that if you don't have a minimum size of 8mm wires, theres a good chance you will cook the wires. this coil produces a little more spark. I bought 9mm wires for my 331, no issues

    Wow is all I can say! This coil made an extreme difference in performance and economy. I gained about 57 miles per gallon WITH my foot in it. The car also gained 1500 horsepower. This is the best coil ever! EVER! God would put the coil on his mustang. If David Caruso had a mustang, he would use this coil. Seriously, it's not that big of a difference and a lot of the reviews are full of crap. HOWEVER, it is a great buy and does what is says and a little more. I'm very happy.

    91 5.0 msd coil

    Love this coil. i combined it with the msd wires and E3 spark plugs and wow. Instantly felt a difference in throttle response and has a smoother idle. My car also gets better gas millage(17mpg on avg and thats including me letting my foot down often). It also sounds louder too. great stuff. Shipping was a little slow buts could be cause i live all the way in Vegas. ha

    great spark... short lived

    I bought one of these coils last year and it was great, car ran way better, but then it ran worse and worse and worse, test the coil and it was barlly making power, swapped it out with the old one and its back to normal. I just bought a new coil connector and a new msd coil, if it goes bad again then I would only recomand this coil for track cars... and make sure you don't throw your old one out, I'm not the only one with this problem

    Stop reading the reviews, and buy it! Installed this in literally two minutes! And could immediately notice a difference! While your at it, purchase some ford racing 9mm wires and an msd distributor cap. The combo will add a little color under hood, and pair well with each other.

    Easy Installation - Does what it should

    My old coil was ready to go. The installation on this product was extremely quick and easy, and it definitely looks better than stock. Definitely a must when looking at upgrading your ignition system.

    Great ignition coil for the money!

    It actually really helped with my idling issue that I had before and I can feel a bit more throttle response. It's more snappy but I like it! I would definately recommend this product to a fellow Mustang owner looking for a tune up.

    Great product. Woke up my Mustang!

    I installed this, and the MSD cap/rotor, as a replacement for my stock coil. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I'm pleasantly surprised at the increased responsiveness! It also solved all of my misfiring issues that I would experience when cruising at 2000-2500 RPMs. Highly recommended!

    Great item - definitely contributed to better acceleration

    My '89 Mustang GT convertible is red with less than 70,000 miles, but it was time for a tune up. I installed the MSD coil in less than an hour. I also installed NGK Iridium plugs with yellow Ford Racing 9mm wires, and an MSD distributor cap and rotor. (That combination took a good amount of time.) I cannot say that I gained horsepower but I can definitely say the acceleration is more positive and smoother, throughout the RPM range. Prior to these improvements there was always a definite pause between stepping on the pedal and the motor accelerating.
