Default Anyone interested in VVT COP conversion bracket?

While working on Morpheus we decided to switch to VVT COP setup on the BP4W.
Yes, I know, the MSM valve cover works great for that but I already have my valve cover powder coated and didn't feel like having to do that again.
So, we programmed a bracket that bolts the VVT coils onto the BP4W valve cover (might fit 94-97 too, I haven't checked yet) and here's what it looks like -





The only modification you need to do in order to fit this bracket is to tap the 2 holes for the plastic wire brackets into M6 thread using a bottoming tap.
If there's any interest I can make a few more, so let's hear it.

PM me a price. I was planning to buy parts for Toyota cops this week but I'd rather just use one of the three sets of VVT coils I already have in the garage.

Toyota COPs are wear items too. Ask me why I have 8 in my spares box. And the answer isn't I have a v8 miata.

They are all wear items. All things equal the Toyota setup is half the parts to potentially wear out.

My d585 coils are 8 years old and still kicking ***, using the stock blue NGKs that are at least two years old.

But they aren't equal. The ls coils are about twice as powerful as Toyota.

For an NA engine, I could see how they are unnecessary, but if your changing them anyway....

Username checks out. Cool bracket OP! If I had a 99-00 I'd seriously consider it, VVT coil parts are cheap.

It'll be cheap if I send you the adapter bracket w/o threads (M6 x 4), bolts, spacers or finish, like $35-40.
As a finished product, threaded, anodized, bolted and supplied with all the spacers, probably $100 or so.
