    What happens if the coil wires were swapped and the coil wires were connected to the wrong coil on a stock QV and someone tried to start it. Would it take out one of the coils or harm the digiplexes, or ?. Any info would be appreciated.

    I was told by a mechanic that it could potentially damage the engine in that the spark/ combustion would be all out of proper sequence.
