Ah. I remember that photo and I didn't know that. Cheap is subjective? How much they cost?

But I'll be looking out for y'alls coils when it comes to market.

A set of magnecor coils for a BP is $90. And those aren't custom. Versus $30 for NGKs If that gives you an idea on price.

Mark me down for a bracket and wire kit (when available) for my 2000.

I believe someone has mentioned this already, but if not, have you tested whether your bracket would be compatible with stock MSM front shock bracing?

I'll have a bracket out of the next batch. I could bring it over and try it out on yours.

I used stock style Miata wires and clipped the coil ends and used these coil ends for $19. That's enough ends to do two Miatas for $19.

I would buy these and send half a pack out with each bracket and let people cut and crimp them using the wires they already have. This is the easy button.

Great option. Kinda tricky for those with msm and vvt coils though. Stock cables are cheap enough, but the ends don't fit the narrower diameters of these valve covers.

Well, those guys are going to need an option but everyone else should be happy.

They say that they are happy, they put on a strong face, but when I look into the eyes of or read the posts of a person without VVT you can tell there is an emptiness, a longing for something better ..............

I'm running one. Stainless, so it polishes nicely.

Sorry to change subjects quick. Do you just have both ports on the valve cover feeding into the catch can sans check valve and using a single source vacuum?

Put me down for just the bracket. Looks better than the hack job I was planning.

Dry fitted it to the MSM. Looks good. Tried to see if I will have to loose the tower brace. I guess I won't know until I get some coils to see if it clears the coils. But I don't think it will.

Ah dam, im pretty sure it wont, the coils add another 1/2" of height or so. Try mounting them under the bracket instead of over, that will buy you ~0.100".
