Hasn't been any benefit of upgrading ignition coils on a Ford engine since they introduced TFI, unless you just wanted a different color coil. I bought a Ford Motorsport one once upon a time for a...

Drive up on a ramp to change the oil and it will all run down the back funnel of the tray without making a big mess. A quick burst of brake clean gets rid of the residue.
