Default Fried coil pack! ***!

So I park my car at work this morning, turn it off and, since i was early, listen to the radio for a while... when all of a sudden I see smoke billowing out of my hood... ***?! i scream... pop the hood and my coil pack is startin to melt! I just had it replaced about 1 month ago too.. I am running the perfectpower piggyback ECU but no other electronics that would have anythin to do with the coil pack.... so what is going on?! faulty coil pack or... HELP!!!

Check to see if that ECU increses dwell time on the coils.
The Utec does, and I have seen many coil packs fail. Check all the gounds to and around the coil, a bad ground will kill a coil quickly.
