A coil would tend to cause a misfire at all rev speeds and mainly at low rev's. Sounds like you may have a fuel blockage or a bad fuel pump not supplying enough pressure at WOT (wide open throttle) ! Start by checking fuel pressure @ WOT. Does the vehicle have the MIL showing on the dash display?. Have the car pluggged into a diagnostic computer !
