    My OEM coil was blue. It also had a very low primary resistance of about 0.4 ohms (what I remember). I would think the DeLoreango coil would match the OEM coil specifications.

    So... The main problem was the distributor cap and rotor.
    Why my new coil does not work I have no clue...
    Can I have fried it somehow?

    And by the way, thanks for all your help!!
    COOL!

    I doubt you fried the coil too...shake it and if you here/feel oil sloshing, that's at least part of its problem...otherwise it sounds like it is low on smoke instead.

    This is not the first time someone had a problem with coils. It seems the Delorean ignition system is rather particular about them. Often when an owner puts a "performance" coil on the car it either won't work or fails very quickly. The OEM coil is a low failure item even though they are getting old. Caps and rotors do fail because of age or if the car got very wet. The original Bosch parts appear to have been of very high quality, often better than new parts!

    Look here at post #31 for the way I tested the primary resistance of the stock coil at 0.387 ohms.
