it wont hurt it though. if it hooks up, use it, but if you would have bought it, it wouldnt have been a good investment.

the only prob is the wire from the distributor to the coil wont go to the accel coil because the stock coil has a post and the accel needs to go down about an inch to make contact is there some kind of adapter

Go to your local parts store and get a coil wire for a 85' Mustang 5.0 it will work with that coil. However that particular coil wire is fairly short and you will need to get a coil mount for that coil and mount it to the the cylinder head or the intake. Long coil wires for this application can be purchased through summit racing so that the coil can be mounted on the inner fender or shock tower. You will also have to do some electrical work as the TFI coil on your car now uses spade connectors you will need some eyelet connectors to mount the +/- to the coil studs.

If it were me I would save up and buy an aftermarket TFI coil which plugs right into your application. After you spent all your time and effort buying a coil wire and electrical connections you could have just bought the aftermarket part thats plug and play but you decide

I'd keep the stock coil. The factory Ford TFI igntion system is a good system.

My daily driver has 16 cylinders and 4400hp @ 1000 rpm....

If you want the car extra reliable and easy starting. Do a complete tune up on your car, plugs, wires, cap, rotor, check codes for any errors and correct the errors. Buy a battery with high cranking amps this will alow for easy starts in any climate.

I totally agree with Darrel here keep the stock TFI they work very well as a matter of fact the TFI is popular swap for people running older cars with stock ignition.

Also, the hotter sparking ignitions like MSD only help burn fuel better at higher rpm's
