Yes I understand it. Never said I didn't. I never said Iridium and Platinum were the same. Is there anything that doesn't turn into an argument on this forum? The only point I was trying to make is that issues do exhist with platinum (and maybe iridium) when used in nos (or boosted) applications and recomended copper. Tip temp being the biggest issue imo and apperently a bonding problem with platinum when used with nos. I was just trying to put out a heads up when using these types of plugs in performance (aka. boost) applications.

well, fwiw, i just built a cop harness today. Easiest thing ever. Brad bought 4 COPs from a junkyard and they sent him the entire valve cover cover and harness. I just had to extended the wires and couple 1&4 and 2&3 and that was it

has anyone sourced a (waterproof)connector that plugs right into the factory coil harness so it's 100% reversible?

I ended up using a 4 wire harness for a trailer that I soldered in to the stock harness to retain the factory connectors. I just have to unplug the trailer connector, and hook the stock stuff back up. I'll try to get some pics up once I have the mounting bracket for the COPs installed.

I just got male & femaile weatherpack connectors, pins, and the rubber insulators (the ones sold at pep boys and the other auto stores) and soldered it in parallel with the stock harness. You can get a third connector (just the one side), and put in it just the rubber plugs instead of pins, so you have a plug cap for times when the COP is removed ...

Anyone tried the 90080-19023 coils?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Toyot...spagenameZWD1V

I know of these 3 part numbers:
90080-19015 <---what were using?? I'll have to go look on my car.
90919-02239
90080-19023

I don't know the differences between them yet. I'm trying to find out.

lazzer, I won't tell you how much they charged me for mines locally

Please tell me that I can use them even though I got 2 pairs with different numbers!

Thanks,

Rafa

I have to start reading the fine print! this was the same reason I got stuck with 2 RC 550cc injectors from ebay This guy is selling them individually!

I'm happier now. He's offering 4 for around $100. This price is still lower than the one I had to pay locally. The store owner couldn't contain his grin. The ******* felt bad and rather than lower his price decided to give me the 4 connectors for free. Merry Christmas to him and his family. El coo de su mai!

the ones i got sitting here are 90080-19015, they were $50 shipped with the entire valve cover and harness. We can go out and resell the valve cover now and try to make a bit of the $$$ back

as long as they look the same, the PN shouldn't matter.

Close; hahaha. Now you know what I understand when I read your posts about turbo issues. (pnp, cops, ait, cas, and on, and on). You need to update your sticky about turbo terms.

It says: let's talk now about things I know more about than you :gay:

lazzer, for now at least I have to try to go with these or go back to the store where I bought them Wednesday morning and ask them to change me one of the pairs. Either way, I installing these on Wednesday. My car is sitting in my garage (after towing it back from the shop) with no spark.

Chad (cjernigan) was kind enough to build me my MS to run in parallel. Anything he needs from me he can ask but; he's in Hawaii on vacation and I want to fire up my car!

How can you forget my name. Of all the names to forget, you'd think I would be the one you would remember.

Are the 02239 coils a little shorter than the 19015?
