    Have you tried the one you have, the heat sink changes but many can be used with only one screw. I have replaced soooo many aftermarket ignition components a few weeks after they were purchased. This is one place not to skimp. Food for thought.

    It's not fucking up you coil. It is not uncommon for the same things that cause the igniter to fail will cause the coil to fail ( if it is an internal coil). That's why when I worked for the dealer they replaced them together. If you still have your original coil, and if it was an internal coil, pry off the metal cover and inspect for hot spots. they will look like a toned down version of the blueing that happens to metal after it's heated ( think headers or metal that has been welded. ) this will be indicative of an electrical problem feeding back through the system and smoking your coils. Like I said before, I have seen Auto Zone parts take out 600.00 worth of ignition components because the guy wanted to save 100.00. If in doubt, go OEM.

    Scuse the fuck out of me. I guess all of that training I got from Honda was for naught. Alas, I have seen the error of my ways. Rock on rice boy. AutoZone forever. See, the difference is I do this for a living and you are soliciting the advice that others pay 70.00 an hour for. I cannot see your car, I am only trying to help you with an EDUCATED guess. P.S. I saw the otherpost. Since you are so smart I do not know why you would consider an opinion from fools. Hey, I'll buy ya an APC decal if you can tell me how a motor works.
