totally fixed the bogging on the old *** long block in the car right now. my guess is that my ignitor was on the fritz. Anywho, I'm very happy that the motor will last me long enough to get my motor stuff back from the machine shop and assemble the bitch. all I needed was a few more weeks, looks like ill get that at least.

Got you on the list.

2 to go.

I have so many things going on I'm loosing it. I contacted a old friend who's built custom machinery with all sorts of specialty connectors per. his specs. He had everything made. I asked him for some input and he's going to see what it might run to have connector's made. You would have to crimp or solder wires to them yourselfs. It would be plastic plugs and terminals he said. My fingers are crossed that I won't need to buy 100,000 of them to get them for $.50ea

Put me down too. I'm into it. Who was making the reversible set up again?

Edit: Also, I'll be going to the shippers on Monday to ship a valve cover to Ben possibly. I shipped one to Jersey a while back for powdercoating and it wasn't too expensive.

Sorry I'm not bustin' out CAD for this so paintbrush it is. Someone have a head/valvecover laying around to check how much room is under the area right around the plug holes? I was thinking something like this could work, look good, and be done with hardware parts for a few dollars. Maybe use locknuts to hold the bolt to the valvecover and the washers might not be needed. A steel bolt head would seal against the aluminum just fine by itself. Cut the bolt just long enough and use nice chrome acorn nuts or even wing nuts for quick plug access for all the racers.

I've never tried it, but that would appear to be the case. Below are excerpts from the EMU install manual.




The tuning manual also notes that CAS input is necessary for the conversion. I'm not sure if the EMU will like the Miata's CAS since it does not have a discrete #1 sensor...

At any rate, y'all have inspired me to do the same, I've got my Corolla coils sitting on the bench, a dead miata ignitor to salvage for the connector (making this truly plug-n-play) and I've ordered a piece of 1.5" x .25" aluminum flat stock to make a bracket out of. I plan to use the three long bolts which normally hold the valve cover in place to also hold a bracket down, and then a bolt will thread through each coil into the bracket. (Although I must admit, Lazzer's idea is sufficiently sexy that you've got me thinking about doing that instead.)

I had the same thought. In fact I have the dead ignitor sitting right here with me at my office desk with the coils. Incedintally, I have been informed by SWMBO that these items are no longer permittable in the kitchen.

My original plan was to pop the ignitor open and use it as a PNP plug. However the damn thing is sealed shut, and my options for tool use are limited to torch and zis wheel. Hardly the precision instrument required.

Please keep me informed.

I dunno about the need for pnp really, I've been daily driving my coils for a couple days now and if anything its better than it was before. I don't see myself ever converting backward. After a long 45min drive on backroads (read: in the mountains, at high rpms) I can pull over and feel the COPs and they are "cool" to the touch in under hood temps speak. They simply don't feel like they are going to over heat at all.
