Can anybody tell me what the difference is in the color configurations of the two wire leads of the HEI coil? The two choices I have found are red & white, and red & yellow. Are they interchangable? I've never paid attention to the colors when I've swapped coils before and never seemed to have had a problem.

The red and white wire coils came out in V6 gm cars and trucks and the red and yellow wire coils came out in V8 `s I have heard the V6 coils have more amps and are better to use for racing. The V6 coils can be used in a V8 HEI i have used them but could not tell any changein power..
