A 355 platform owner contacted me off line - with an coil failure issue.

If this truly is a repetitive problem there are a couple of fixes that can be designed.

So before I do that I'd like to find out what the severity of the problem is.

It may be possible to remote mount the coils and get them away from the heat. The early engines would be a bit more difficult to seal the valve cover hole where the coil normally goes.

I'd be in for anything that gives us a solution outside of constantly replacing coil packs. Something that was upgraded for better performance and control would be even better.

ETA: for clarity, there are like 3 threads a week here and on cfans talking about members replacing coils to address misfires.

Anything is an upgrade vs OEM.
