As you can see a simple ignition coil change went south. I'm looking for suggestions to get the rest of it out. There's nothing to grab on to. Thanks for the help.

Can you get a pick to take it out?

Something similar to this but big enough when opened to grab it

If you have a little bit of time get something that will fit in there and put a nice bit of super glue on the end and pull it out. If that doesn't work, use JB weld. JB will take like 12+ hours to cure but it WILL get it out. Guaranteed

Also, you might be able to put a wood screw into it and pull it out with needle nose players depending on how much broke off. Pull another coil out to compare sizes to see if there's room to do this method.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I just decided to leave this one to a pro and took it to my local indy shop. I'll post back with the method he used to get it out. Kinda in a pinch to get this one up and running.
