The scr will just act as the firing mechanism -- dumping the power of your capacitors through a coil.

If you want more oomph, you need a bigger coil and/or bigger capacitor bank.

true! -- bigger scr = higher current = dump to coil faster. There's a lot to be said for raw unadulterated power at the source :)
