Supercedes to 12-4191.

The second generation 300ZX was the first Z to change from a traditional distributor ignition to individual ignition coils, also known as coil packs. In a distributor type ignition, a single ignition coil is used to generate the spark for every cylinder, which is sent to the correct plug by the distributor. In Distributorless Ignition Systems (DIS), each coil sends its spark direct to the plug. If you are noticing backfiring or poor fuel economy, it is possible that one or more of your coils have started to go bad. Power loss, misfires, stalling, rough idle, and hard starts can indicate that one or more coils have completely failed. Genuine, original equipment (OEM) ignition coil packs such as these have proven themselves to be the best replacement option for the 90-3/94 300ZX. Sold individually; 6 required per car.

This part number is 'superceded'. Most of our supercessions originated with Nissan. A part made for a Z31, for instance, may actually be the same as the part made for the Z32, but it was given a different number. Nissan would then later supercede the number, so that if you ordered the part number for the Z32, what you would actually get is the original part number for the Z31 (or vice-versa), as they are the same part. Other times, supercessions can exist between different parts on the same car, as is often the case with hardware of the same size. These supercessions were Nissan decisions, where replacing the 'superceded from' part with the 'superceded to' part results in identical performance. The vast majority of them are simple numbering changes, where the parts are literally identical. In some cases, the two parts are identical in fit and function, but the finish is slightly different, or the non-critical overall dimensions are slightly different (like one starter housing being '' shorter than the other on the non-attached side). They do not affect the function of the part, and in many cases, the 'superceded-to' part improves upon the 'superceded-from' part.
