Bluegrass 7 has a good reputation on FTE.Bluegrass 7 has a good reputation on FTE.
Do not use any coils but factory originals.
The ACCELs' are made in PRC and will fail and may cause more issues that you want to have over time.
There is a horror story behind the 8 I tried and lost them all one at a time over a year's time and cost a big bundle to learn just how bad they can be.
There is no one to stand behind them, with the warrenty of only 30 days that is offered from the vendors.
I know they have a large number of complaints but still sell them.
A coil that is faulty usually does not only cause an issue at idle but at other times as well.
A 'specific issue' with coils is a studder or missfire at cruise with light throttle over 45 mph.
It usually is one coil with shorted turns that has low output but not a hard failure and does not set a code or CEL.
Good luck..

I thought you already bought the accels?

You can get Motorcraft for the same price as you fist link and the advance auto part ones are cheaply made.

Rockauto has Motorcraft for 45.99

And this place has Motorcraft for 43.99 I think.
(DG-508)Motorcraft DG508 Gasoline Ignition Coil-DG508. - Diesel Filters,Additives,brake rotors, and brake pads for Chevy, Dodge and Ford Diesel Trucks
