Best ignition coil for the 1994 5.2

I have a MSD 6a multi-spark on the stock coil. i was thinking i should upgrade the coil and was going to go with this
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/ACC-140021/
has anyone used this coil or any recommendations on an upgraded coil?

The Accel is fine too. Mine has been going for 10+ years.

One with a lifetime warranty. When it goes bad, you get one without charge!

93 red ZJ 190k 4.0. Spent more money than I should have ...

Isn't red the only color a vehicle should be?
If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

I'd match a MSD coil with your MSD ignition box, but not like it really matters.

How do you like the 6AL btw? How long have you run it?

ive had it on for a little longer than a year now, without a upgraded coil there isnt much gain.
i got it for free so i put it in, my buddy thought it was fried cause his 95 f150 wouldnt run with it installed. he had it wired wrong or something

The ignition box will work with most coils,

This comes from the manual-


COILS
The MSD 6 Series Ignitions can be used with most stock coils and aftermarket coils designed to
replace the stock coils. There are some "race only" coils such as the MSD Pro Power Coil, PN 8201,
that cannot be used with a 6 Series MSD Ignition Control. For more information on recommended
coils, consult the supplied Coil Application Chart or check with the manufacturer of your coil. If you
have any questions concerning coils, contact our Customer Service Department

I/we like the MSD 8222. We've been running them exclusively for 20+ years on all our race and street cars and not a single coil failure....
The road-race cars get the dog snot run out of them...Lots of vibration and high temps.
