I was wondering if there is a simple way of firing a coil on plug outside of the car. The coil in question is just a two wire coil on plug and I don't know if its possible to just hook up a 12V voltage source to it to see if it will fire. Any ideas on how to do this would be greatly appreciated.

If it is a coil that connects directly to a spark plug, then I believe that they need a higher voltage than 12v pulsed into them. They are not the same as the old fashioned large coils that were found on engines with points, where a large current at 12v was used to fire them.
