Fiat Punto Coils on F4

Since i decided to make the new spark plug leads, i might put new coils to go with them.

Question is, has anyone of you used the 1.2 litre Fiat coils on the "old" style MV? I mean the twin coil setup on a bracket.

Today we will see, i bought a new Punto coil for 10,5 euros.

It has roughly the same values, so why not! I will let you know....

I believe they are compatible, I was recommended to go for one that would also fit an Alfa.

If they work sling the part number on here as MV don't hold them anymore and they are 180 each NOS

12 volt ignition coils are all pretty much the same other than packaging.... we used to get hotter coils for our 1970's Yamaha race bikes because the OEM were weak. Automotive coils hose clamped to the frame with a ballast resistor so the points wouldn't burn too badly. This was pre-CDI/TCI ignition.

If the packaging will allow mounting then I will wager they will work just fine.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

In the stage of building the leads, but the first one i made has a resistance of 3.7K. Manual suggest 4.5 - 5.5K, not sure if i can install these? What do you think guys?

Other than saving money, is there anything else you're trying to accomplish by using non-MV spec parts?

Yes. The oem coils are not available, and the oem leads are crap even when new. And you cant get them either...
