Running on 3 cylinders means better gas mileage doesn't it?

The 4th coil is currently sitting on my desk. I was using it last night to label all my wires on my pigtails. I also will be taking it up to the hardware store to get some more things to mount it. I only had 3 threaded rods at the time so that meant only 3 went on. I am planning on building some sort of device that will thread through the other 4 holes and holes and hold the backs together.

The real test will come if this mount actually holds up once the car is running. I tried mounting them where stock coils would go, but with the VVT line back there and the coolant temp sensor placement of all 4 was nearly impossible.

maybe a strip of aluminin that spans to the 1st and second in that pic, then drill to mount it between the two.

Remember to test your wiring on one coil before wiring them all

Will do. After doing some more searching last night in the MS documentation I am 99% sure I have it correct.

I am going to the hardware store this afternoon to pic up some more parts to finish my brackets. I will hopefully get the actual pigtails wired in tomorrow morning and give them a try.

Note that you can bus together all your power and ground cables and then split out to each coil at the "coil harness". This may be obvious but I felt like a genious when I did this.

Stop cluttering my thread with legit good looking things. I get sad I am not that good at fabbing things. Although I am not sure how well those cops would work on the VVT valve cover.


I think I have just about finished my bracket. Now just to actually wire in the pigtails tomorrow morning and test the new coils







On the plus side. Tial has finished re-machining my exhaust housing. Now I just need to ATP to finish exchanging my CHRA, then my turbo can be safety wired and I can get my car back on the road.

that's a very noodly setup.

four sets of 2001 wires would get you four of the super shorty ones.

I am planning on ordering custom made wires from magnacore with correct lengths once I have everything working. I could care less what my wires look like right now.

I have a set of used magnacore wires if you're interested. Leftovers from my swap.
