I would go with some 4 1/2 tons if you wanna get up. Or go with the 3 ton MACH 3 from Pro Hopper, those always did me good

3.5 OSC coils worked great on my boys 95 when they were new but once they broke in some they were a little too soft. I think a set of 4 tons would be a good size just try not to cut too much off. We tried 4.5 ton ProHopper coils but they were too stiff and just wouldn't break in. We were running 72V to the nose and got around low to mid 30s on the 3.5s.
