Year and Trim: 1993 ssei supercharged bright white
Hey all, in the past few months I've started getting some high performance parts for my 93 ssei, nothing crazy to up the horse power or anything, just stuff to let the engine perform how it wants with no restrictions, I have a cold air K&N filter I got 4-5 years ago, then recently I put in denso iridium plugs in, MSD wires, a performance oil filter and just started useing mobile 1 synthetic, and now my next step is to get some performance coil packs but have no idea where to start looking, can u guys give me some advice based on experience with ones that u guys have or have used, my price range is between 3-400$, but hoping to stick to between 2-300$ but since I'm single all my money goes into my baby so what ever is the best I want to know, thanks in advance guys

Stock used Series II L67 coils are all you will realistically ever need unless you are sinking $10k into the engine.

Dam, 10k? Well I do plan eventually to have the engine removed and completely broken down and rebuilt but that won't happen for at least 5 years, but for now I'm just looking for nonevasive way to get better performance, bc it only had 205 hp to begin with and I'm sure after nearly 21 years and 183k miles some of that hp is gone and I'm just trying to get back as much as possible so do you or does anyone have any ideas on the best performance coils, and an FYI I'm never sensible when it comes to my baby, she gets only the best and that's why I'm looking for the best coils

The best coils for you are stock Series II L67 coils.

MSD and other brands are no better, look around at the cars you see around here, very few people run anything other then stock SII L67 coils and even less recommend aftermarket "performance" coils. Go to your local salvage yard, buy a set of clean used coils for $30 or so then use the rest of the money somewhere else.

Yes, stock coils will do best. Apparently the MSDs don't even last more than a year.
