Default Neon coilpack

Hey guys. I was wondering if a coilpack from a 2.0 dohc would work on a 2.0 sohc. I was at the boneyard and all I could find that were good were from doubles. THANKS!!

I called the local dodge dealer and he was good enough to lookup the part numbers for a 1997 SOHD and DOHC. They are the same part number.

I used to build the Neon coil packs... they are exactly the same. In fact, if you pop the hood on a Dodge Viper built between 1995 and2005, you'll find the 4SP Neon coil pack mounted side-by-side with 6SP Caravan coil pack feeding the V10 (only with different cylinder numbers molded on the posts of each).

Just make sure to get the Flat or Round terminals on your connector as required.

... but be advised that even if you wind up with a connector mismatch, the internal guts are the same and the pins still line up the same way whether it's a pin connector (newer) or a blade connector (older)... so in other words no matter which coil you use both of them use the same exact pin positions in the connector to fire the same cylinder #'s... and if you get coils that don't look the same because of the metal on the secondary posts, don't worry about that either... we quit making the coils with brass terminals in 2001 and made them with steel terminals instead after that (steel was much cheaper than the brass; no electrical difference with high-frequency voltage between brass and steel, and steel is stronger to shock). But anyway just letting you know that on the inside, they're exactly the same no matter what.

But if you are able to switch wiring harnesses too, go with the flat "blade" connector coils (the newer ones). The reasons we changed to the blade connector over the round "pin" connector was because the pin connectors sometimes had a high failure rate and would block the current running into the coil pack... it was a molding defect that would come up that we got sick of throwing away money on it so we changed it to the blade connector and voila, problem solved.

I know that no one has mentioned it, but just in case, the MSD coil has the exact same output as the stock coil for those thinking of upgrading their coil. The Screaming Demon is the only one I know of that is an upgrade as far as energy output.
