It won't pedal as well. Coil shocks aren't designed for climbing and efficient pedalling. A coil will make it more plush and give more adjustment though you might find you are limited in choice because it's a relatively short shock. How about a BOS air DH shock? Cane Creek make an air DH shock but it really doesn't live up to the hype.
Another alternative is getting your shock Push tuned.
