I was running .020 on the stock coil and I'm running .055 gap now. Its been 6-months, but the car really cam alive back then when I switched and the car is taking insane amounts of spark angle. I know they work, but everyone who knows more about this than me says its a snake oil, lol.

Abe it's not just "less missing" that shows up on the dyno, it's the larger flame kernel from the bigger spark that shows on the dyno.

Sorry, it's what I meant, anyway, a bigger spark without missing. :-)

Mine came from a 2003 Toyota Camry. If you find a compatible one then it should work. The part number is: 90080-19023

Thank you very much.

Right now I am considering 90919-02230 but have no clue if it will work. It is from an 02 Tundra

Wow!!! I'm glad I saw this post. I was just going to use regular heat shrink tubing and that snap on wire loom.

Thanks for the heads up.

I'm still trying to find out if the 90919-02230 will work

Thanks man!!

Nice write up btw

You switched to 90919-02230 ?

Your web page shows 9080-19023 or are you saying it does not matter ?

It shows that my sister must not be the only dyslexic in the family. Let me go see what I'm using


(wanders off)

Well, I don't know what I WAS using, but I have "02239" on the car now. I had a bunch of spares, but I swapped them around with people... It's really just a question of how tall and how big around they are. I think some of off a camry, and some a celica.
edit: Corrola and celica. Clicking on the pics zooms them in

A truck might be too long due to a taller head.

I am building my COPs now for my '02.
I got my COPs from an '03 V6 Lexus P/N 90919-02234. They are longer than the 1.8 COPs. In my case it worked out great! All I had to do was notch the round "skirt" on the COPs to clear the cast bosses on #2,3 & 4. Also I thinned the mounting boss on #3. They look like they belong.
I got the pigtails with the Toyota COPs and I am using the 2 male connectors from the Miata CAS unit. Mine will be "plug & Play"
The hold down bracket will use the Toyota COP bosses and the cast bosses on the valve cover.

How are you doing with your COPs ?

Mine should arrive tomorrow then I'll start trying to find ways to cheap out of buying coil connectors.

Got my Waytek Wire catalog in the mail today. Looked at the connector section, mostly to see what they had in Weatherpak, and found these connector pins.

Molex MX150 Sealed Connector Systems Home Page

Here's a data sheet for one of the female pins.

Looks like it has just the gap between the wire crimp and the larger portion at the front that showed us how to create on the Tyco pins. Anyone up for getting some and trying it out?
