So while it was on my mind, I said F-It, that ignitor is getting opened. Here's a how-to w/ pics

Step 1:
Flip ignitor over, top side down. Drill 2 small holes near edge. Holes look like a big spider bite.

2:
Insert small pliers (I used a surgical hemostat) into holes and clamp. Slowly pull metal bottom plate away from the plastic body. It is simply siliconed in place and will come free.

3:
Carefully break the solder joints between the terminal pins and circuit board.

Now it's just a matter of soldering on the wires that go to the COPs, drilling a hole so they can stick out a side of the plastic (former) ignitor body. When it's reassembled I'll fill it with epoxy which will seal up the two holes I drilled, plus will seal around the wires coming out. Done.

They simply don't feel like they are going to over heat at all.
Were you keeping track of your miliage before you converted? Some were interested to see if others have seen an mpg improvement.

well my last drive home from fredericksburg to blacksburg netted me only 19mpg, but thats because something was seriously ******* up on my car. Really bad bogging, car would not hot start at the rest stop (shouldnt have stopped :( ). I replaced the ign setup with the COPs. I can not reproduce the bogging at all for any length of time or amount of hard driving. I haven't monitored the mpg from the beginning of a full tank yet, I'll do that the next time I refill. I put the COPs in in the middle of a tank. In blacksburg you don't have to drive very far in any direction to get to where you need to go so a tank lasts me over a week usually. I'll be driving to roanoke to the machine shop tomorrow though so that will put some more miles on it, i'll update then.

Can you wait for me to test the coils, and compare them against the '01 and '00 coils so I can make my decision? If they're stronger than the factory coils, I'll get em.

lazzer, GB = "group buy"

He's testing dwell curve and output I think. The dwell curve is going to be a nice addition to this thread.

Every junk yard owner here wants rape me with their price
Any parts for such recent cars (except hyundais) demands premium $$.

After scouring 6 yards over the last month only 2 had recent ZZ model coils.
The cheapest wanted $275 a set!!!

I figured it would be cheaper to get them from abroad.

Oh and I was wayyyyyyyy busy this weekend. Too busy driving

Ampz-paid.
y8s-paid
TurboTim-paid

Payment required from:
SOL general
cjerigan
firedog25

Shipping in the usa shouldn't be more then $10 usps so the rest of you ordering the coils send $70 to [email protected] via. Paypal.

When all 6 sets are paid I'll place the order and get them out asap.

Thanks.
