My black anodized Tial EWG has sort of turned purple when I was running it without coolant flowing through it.

According to the megamanual for the d585 truck coils dwell = 4.5ms and spark duration = 2.0ms
is that what everyone is running?

You use your MS to drive the tach. Been doing it that way for years.

Im also doing the upgrade to the ls2 truck coils and here is my attempt. It was getting dark outside and i messed a bit of cable up. So i need to order one.

I think it looks pretty nice already. Engine bay looks nothing special, but then again the outside is stock with a classic carrier so a little bit sleeper style

So my setup is finished now, havent driven yet but idle it runs good as normal,

Only weird think is i had to lower the VE table a lot, PW and Duty Cycle and AFR is now the same as before, but the VE table at idle is much much lower now.

If anyone needs a bracket for D585s as well as custom ignition wires, we are now offering them for all NA and NBs!

Can someone confirm if my diagram for a 1.6 is correct? I'm not 100% sure where to splice pin 26 to get tach.

(sorry for the shitty MSPaint drawing)

Another option is the "IGN-1A" Coils by AEM, part number 30-2853 . They have enough juice for about 250hp per coil and can be run in wasted spark if needed. I'm running very high boost on a built engine with .036 plug gap and no spark blow out. The main reason I got them is for the 1 year warranty and they're $80 a piece.

Would some one be willing to make a pnp harness for my 99 nb?

I can mail the pigtails and oem plugs, and compensate for parts/time/labor involved.

I tried to have fab9 do an ls coils pnp harness for me, he said sure we can make it, just order the plugs for the coils. so i ordered plugs, and called to place an order 10 times, left 3 voicemails, and sent 5 emails, over a period of 2 month's. and fab9 still has not picked up the phone, nor called back, nor replied to my emails.

This thread was pretty helpful during my D585 install but it lacks some information on Dwell settings. I have seen a few other threads mention nominal Dwell being around (4.2-4.7ms) but nothing on cranking Dwell (currently set to 8.0ms). I made a video on installing these into 90-93 cars using the factory harness, SADfabs bracket, D585s with factory pigtails and connectors, and DIYPNP MS2. Very easy to set up for wasted spark but I don't have any tach signal the way I did it. Easy to fix running from tachout in MS to the back of the cluster but there are also other ways, just depends on your setup.

+1 on the video (unforutnately the still-shot of the YouTube video makes it look like you're doing something "unholy" to the car)

Ha! It does. I looked at it like I was representing my local autocross region but, it totally looks like I'm trying to figure out how to biologically make an NB.

Now that I've got them working (see GM D514A CNPs Mystery for my moronic problem), here's my coils mounted on my DIY bracket (mentioned in this thread):



The brackets are surprisingly solid, 3mm aluminium, you can put your hand across the CNPs mount and rock the whole car.

The popular video for this is great, but I'm unclear on what I should be doing with my igniter. He took the cover off and soldered a few of the pins together. Any more information on the what and why? Thank mr skeltal

Edit: got my answer, it's a cleaner way of joining the wires proximal to the connector. I r smorter
