Default 5524 Street Fire Coil Mounting Orientation

Can the Street Fire 5524 coil (cylindrical) be mounted horizontaly?

How long has the 5524 coil been in production? I am just curious, I can't seem to find much about it on the web.

Thank you.

The 8222 cylindrical body would fit my existing bracket (mounted horizontal).
Would this coil be fine to use with my Street Fire ignition box?

What is the difference between the Blaster High Vib and the Blaster II?

Thank you very much for the quick reply. I was going to buy a coil this weekend and you kept me from buying the wrong on already!!

I have been running my MSD Streetfire box for about nine months now while using my existing FBO brand 12v coil. The coil seems to be running fine but I opted to buy the MSD #8222 (High Vibration coil per your above tech support because I am mounting the coils horizontally) just so I could have a "matched" brand set.

I made resistance checks on both coils and I am curious what these are telling me. Can you decribe to me what the differences in these resistance readings are between the two coils?

I assume that the "- to +" primary readings show that both of these coils have no need for a ballast resistor and can run on a 12v system. If I remember correctly, any reading above .7ohms does not require a ballast resistor.

But what about the difference in the secondary side of both coils? What does the different readings tell me, if anything?

MSD #8222:
- to +: 1.10ohms
- to center post: 5.07 ohms
+ to center post: 5.07 ohms

FBO 12v coil:
- to +: .80ohms
- to center post: 11.83ohms
+ to center post: 11.80ohms

I have not started up the car since swapping to the 8222 coil (last night), but I should be able to this weekend. I am just curious how much of a difference there is between these two coils.

Thank you.
