There is seldom info available,especially on electrical components on Ford oem-parts AFAIK!

Here is a good article on the Msd ignition coils when compared to the stock (COP) with Dyno results! I hope this helps any. Z

I have the documents somewhere, but itís a small difference... like 7-8% more energy...

But itís enough to help with spark blow out... specifically at the higher RPMs.

TY sir,  I was hoping for a tiny bit more .. i'd like to test gapping only to .029 and see if the tips last any longer with better coils.

Currently running 0.028" gapped NGK Rutheniums on my car with the MSDs and they're performing great, no noticeable difference from the stock coils with plugs at 0.026"

After I let a garbage mechanic replace my injectors, I took it to the track and ran the same times I normally run. The following weekend I changed my plugs and was shocked to find one of them gapped at .014, overall I'm pretty impressed with the MSD coils.

I am really impressed with them as well.  I keep my stock coils in the trunk just in case.

I haven't installed mine yet but I've heard so many good reviews I can't wait.  Plus that GearHead dyno test with them speaks for itself.

There is a guy on SHOForum that works for MSD that offers employee pricing

Even being a dealer myself, a loophole I found a while back (since I get crappy pricing) is to go to CJ Pony Parts and pick them up, then use coupon code CJSOCIAL6 for an additional 6% off.

Idk. I'm really on the fence about these... They have mixed reviews and QC seems to be the primary issue. Failing after a year or sooner. The OEM Denso coils don't cost much more either. 🤔 The oems still perform great @ 50k+ miles. Gonna do plugs again and was considering this upgrade/under hood eye candy.

Mine seem to be going strong... a bit over a year at this point with several dynos, several days at the track, and a lot of data logging.

I did notice a smoother overall pull through the RPMs and smooth idle.

I gap my sp-542ís at .026 as per Mattís recommendation.
