Yes. Change to a Blaster 2 coil. I'd get the one that you can set in any position, i.e. upside down.

Did you wire it right? You have to make sure you wire it right to the distributor.

Courtesy of Steve Weiner:

Me: Since the Turbo uses a magnetic pick up type distributor, my question is which wire does the MSD violet wire connect to and which wire does the MSD green wire connect to from the wires coming out of the distributor? Does the MSD green connect to the coaxial center wire or sheathing wire? Or does it even matter which one I connect to?

Steve: ANSWER: You are right in that the violet & green wires conduct the trigger voltage to the MSD. This is phase sensitive and must be connected correctly otherwise the car will not start or run poorly. Connect the center conductor to the green wire and the shield to the violet wire.
