Upgraded coils

Does anyone know of a manufacturer who makes coils with a little more juice for these engines? MSD/ACCEL don't seem to have a fitment for the 2015 or 2016 F250.


Or am I wasting my money?

WHY, the stock coils can fire .070 gap while pulling 12,000 pounds..... how much more do you want...

Assuming there is a COP out there that delivers more voltage to the spark plug, what would it gain you without a plug designed to handle the higher voltage?
You'd simply end up with more metal transfer between the anode and the cathode, resulting in shorter sparkplug life and decreased performance.

Really, when you think about it, these engines represent a system designed to convert air and gas to mechanical energy. Any time you change one component of that system you are going to create an imbalance.
Meaningful improvement requires systematic change, not merely component change.
