So an S12 would use 2 coils then right?

A CA car would, a VG car uses one.

BoostedVG (in regards to people hating on the VG) - Me thinks they were not the mechanic they thought and blamed it all on the engine.

Im running MSD Blaster 2 coils on my ca20. No complaints at all. got my buddy to put one in his supra after his new acell coil died in 3 months and its not giving any troubles
I keep my car cleaner then my room
Fuck you then, I'll take my movies, box of chocolates, bottle of wine and chloroform somewhere else.
Adding an SSD to that is kinda like strapping a 3 inch stainless HKS exhaust on a geo metro.

SOME of the CA engines... as in ONLY the CA18ET. The CA18ET has two independent coils from the factory on North American market S12 Turbo cars. There are 8 spark plugs on those versions of the CA18ET -- 4 intake spark plugs, and 8 exhaust spark plugs. That was an emissions feature not found on CA18ET's in other markets. Anyways, the twin spark coils are for that reason, to provide spark to each of the two banks of plugs.

An MSD Blaster SS coil:



On a CA18ET with 8 spark plugs, you use two of these Blaster SS coils to replace the OEM coils.

I thought all the CA motors had 4 intake & 4 exhaust plugs, each set powered by a seperate coil

Not in the UK for example... they have the one side plugged up, and just have four spark plugs/wires along with a different distributor.

But I just realized what you meant... all the CA SINGLE can motors in SOME markets... CA20E and CA18ET. In some markets, one side of the head has the holes plugged up and they only run four plugs. The second set of plugs in the 8-plug versions of the CA SOHC engines is an emissions thing, not a performance feature.

I only run on my intake side plugs,  runs absolutely fine.  I'm using NGK plugs/wires,  with a new coil.  8 spark plugs on an in-line four is 4 chumps.

Word bro,  word.  Nevada is pretty strict here on emissions regulation too, but in at the beginning of 2012 the state passed a new classic vehicle exemption for 25+ year old cars that allows a smog waiver if the car is driven less than 5,000 miles a year.  Needless to say I was one of the first in line for that deal!  Then I said bye-bye to some needless things on my CA20E!

1979.

Not "anything 25 years or older". Anything after 1979. For the rest of eternity.
