HI,
I am assuming you are referring to the ignition coil that the ignition cables go to. As long as you do not change the order of the cables going to (where they plug in) and have it bolted to metal to ground it, you can move it. Also, you cannot have the ignition cables going to it lay on anything hot or they will melt and short out, causing misfires
