My friend has this ignition coil, i cant rmemeber the brand, but he said 
that he payed about 4 or 5 hundred for it, and would give it to me for 
50.   Apparently it gives  MUCH hotter spark.  What do you guys think, 
would this make a difference on an 85 4kQ?  Would it do damage?  If i 
were to advance the timing and also use this thing would it be noticable? 
 and also, which wires would be the best for this application.  I assume 
that the higher performance ones would be able to deal with the larger 
current better...
