not quite certain what you mean exactly Ramon "Coil ignition over heads"...why is this failing? too much power? How old are the ignition wires....left over from 87 could be your problem there, 'cause containing the spark IS fussy, with high-resistance to carry the high-voltage (straight wire would not work). over-heads? gambin' alot lately?

Because when the car turns off I touch the coil and its burning hot

somethin' weird...bad ground on that one, you might check with the ohm meter battery negative to coil negative to see how skippy the ground is~

Long time since I owned a Starion, but had a problem where the car would just cut out when driving. Eventually it would restart - sometimes hours later. Clearly it was ignition related, but after replacing wires, caps, and coil with no effect, we narrowed it down to the igniter box. The fix was finding a used and compatible igniter box - the box itself if memory services was a little bit bigger than a box of cards, black and bolted to the side of the engine bay - shock tower maybe. 1 or 2 bolts, swap the connector from the old to new, and good to go.
