i would imagine so long as its a healthy engine theres very little difference in them. ive pitted mine (dizzy) against a pals coilpack xe corsa and it was pretty much neck and neck etc

I've always preferred coil pack engines, because never had any hassle electrically wise on the 3-4 I've had, my mate had two dizzy ones and had hassle with coil, amps, and dizzy caps.

Coilpack engines are smoother and better on fuel. Iirc 94-96 was coilpack.

I'd go for a dizzy engine just so it's easier to whack carbs on

Iv seen a coilpack engine running carbs with standard ecu. Can't remember how it was done. Think it had the injectors cutout and resistors in. Worked well.
