    What coil will work for 717?

    Hey guys, I have a 1997 GTI that needs a coil. I have a 787 and 587 coil in stock, and am wondering which one will better work for my 717?

    787 coil is a completely different ignition system, requires a digital handshake from the internal CDI in an mpem to even fire it you'll have to use the old style coil pn#278000586 will work on most 717's except the GTI models you'll need a #278001130 for those models

    Hmm What's the difference between the GTI and the older GTS coils?

    You need the 717 coil body with dual spade connectors versus the single on the earlier ones

    Isn't the 2nd connector just a ground? I think the early coils were grounded at the base. Wouldn't that be the same thing?
