    FS- MSD 8239 Ignition Coil, w/bolts & mounting adapter

    I just bought this from 99gtlimited, but clearly I missed something when I researched it for my car. This is a 3wire coil that will work on Phase1 2.5 motors, but not on my 4wire Phase2 2.5 motor.
    Included is:
    -MSD 8239 coil (clearly new/unused)
    -original box & paperwork
    -CARB exemp sticker
    -MSD stickers
    -thick aluminum adapter plate
    -new coil bolts(4)
    -new adapter plate screws(3)
    -3wire pigtail from Dodge Neon

    Link to original FS thread

    I only want out what I put in, $100 shipped to lower 48 states.

    You could make it work with a separate ignitor, but you would have to modify wiring harness.



    But why even bother changing coil? Is yours bad? I never heard of subaru coils going bad... It is a constant problem on some VWs but not on Subarus...

    It was a consideration, but Im not wanting to hack into the harness and such. The MSDs produce a bit stronger of a spark, which can help with complete burn. I will probably just meter the coils soon to determine its health and possibly change out to a newer OEM coil, just to feel better about it.
