Well, they will make a special outside of the range of their normal Tesla caps, but they really
don't want to. What that means is that they will cost more. There are a couple of other
companies that will make exactly what you want. They are more expensive however. It is my
feeling that the .1 uF -at- 15,000 VAC RMS (TC104-25-225, $350 US) would be the best choice. You
get a higher voltage rating (15 KVRMS vs 12.5 KV RMS) for only $5 more. However, if price is not

I think that getting a bulk order on capacitors that large might be a problem. I'm don't think
too many coilers are going to want them that large. I would still be willing to export them to
you, as I did for the fellows in New Zealand. CP won't export directly.

Wow! You really want some large capacitors. If you really want them and can afford them, let me
know exactly what you are after and I will lay the groundwork. I am going to buy another couple
of "standard" capacitors soon anyway.
