I've had nothing but problems with high perfromance coils from both Accel 
(2) and Pertronics (3).  I'm back to running stock Corvair coils and they 
seem to fire my 0.040 gap under all conditions.  I think the tempertures the 
coils sees in the stock location breaks down the something in the coil and 
they start missing big time.
