Wondering if that is my issue on my cobra and looking to see if anyone else had this experience.

Thanks in advance

Yes, I have. Years ago I restored a Triumph Spitfire and the first coil I used did this exact thing. I had o wait for the coil / car to cool down before I could make it home. I don't remember what brand, it was too long ago. Seems as though I figured out the cause quickly, but again, I don't remember why.
