Well, as Big Scott said
Ignition systems start getting tested the more power you make, the more RPM you turn, more fuel used, boost etc, etc. The stockers are relatively good and most don't have a problem with them.
But some of the cars/engines on this board have had to upgrade to handle the ignition chores. There is no set of rules dictating when/how much power etc that might be. I don't have the factory coils and mine runs better than with them so they were either bad or just not up to the task. These have also been on the car for several years now and so far no problems, again not saying there couldn't be.
Just my 02. for information purposes.
