I've heard the the ICM is something you don't want to skimp on. AC Delco for the ICM. As far as pickup coil, I think any will do. I just put a put a pickup coil called a "Standard T-Series". It was about $4.00 and my car runs like a champ. A pickup coil is just composed of copper wire.

The genuine American AC delco was the best. Its hard to find a genuine AC delco part, even if its in a genuine looking box. Also most places you can still get them from (online) dont seem to honor any kind of warranty.

I used BWD from Oreillys and its been in there a few years, just make sure to use a good heat sink compound under the ICM, not the clear stuff that comes with it.
