Same idea. And honestly, I'd return that or sell it. Many many issues people have had with that SD. What others mods do you have? If needing a new dist. an OEM replacement will be fine.

A coil pack is pretty much a distributor and ignition coil rolled into one. It works from signals from the car's computer(s):









The other type is Coil on Plug (aka - COP, COPs, C.O.P. etc.). You'll hear this term thrown around in the V8 section sometimes. It's a coil "pack" on each individual cylinder:

Too many problems with that. OEM is always a good replacement. It's made to work with your vehicle.:)
