Not likely to make a big difference on a stock car. With pretty much any other setup, the difference it makes will depend on many factors, some of which can be controlled to be representative (we can only hope they are, such as plug gap and condition) and some of which will be unique to the car, such as boost level, tune, richness, condition of stock ignition components (coils and wires), etc.

Just got my connectors from the previously mentioned eBay seller. All four have approximately 3.235" sticking out. Three of the four are great, one has had it's clip broken off, but the rubber seal holds it in good enough for now. In fact I have one of the good ones clipped on, and I'm having difficulties getting it off. I'd rather pay $10 to buy a new one than go through the hassle of trying to get a replacement, the seller probably has some used part policy written out anyways.

If anyone's wondering, Toyota apparently wires their ground, trigger, and tachometer with 14 gauge, and the 12v with 12 gauge. I'm not sure if my gauges are right, I measured approximately .0825" for the 12v, and .0620" on the other three. Wikipedia says that's 14 and 12, however I think that doesn't include the insulation.

P.S. while writing this I did finally manage to get it off, had to use a screwdriver while I pinched with my fingers. My thumb now hurts.

That guy just quoted me $125.17 for four coils shipped. WTF?

Yeah I think the insulation is throwing off your measurements. My pigtails obviously came from different donor vehicles since the wire colors varied between them, but according to my wire strippers they all had 16 ga for the +12V, and 20 ga for the tach & trigger. For the ground, two connectors had 16 ga and two had 20 ga.

I bought mine from the same seller back on Sept. 1 and it was $75 shipped for a set with the Toyota connectors/pigtails. At the time he had sets without the Toyota connectors for $60-ish. Maybe he's seen a spike in demand and raised his price? You could see if he'd bite on a lower offer. If not it might be time to hit up car-part.com or your local yard because $125 is crazy.

I wish I could help you on the question, but I am not familiar with cops.

I am responding to let you know that you really should go to the meet and greet section before you start posting elsewhere. Also, this is an old and long thread. Have you gone through this thread to see if the answer is in here You should do searches before asking questions. Be patient, there is a lot of useful info in here, but if you break the rules, you will pay a price for it. There is little tolerance of repeated questions that can be easily answered by doing searches here.

Go to the meet and greet. Tell us a little about yourself and car. If you have questions, search first, and then ask questions in the proper section.

Good luck

I know everyone is into DIY solutions for everything but what about this: Boundary Engineering

A little expensive, I know, but seems like a pretty tight system, any opipions?

You can always spend more on "better". The trick is to spend "enough" on each thing so the whole car has no weak links. A car with no weak links is infinitely better than a car with a 25 billion dollar engine and bad suspension.

Weird, I looked at a set of 90919-02244 coils at lunch today. Pulled the #1 wire off my '99 and stuffed one of the coils down the hole until it engaged on the plug, no problem.

Just scored four 90080-19015s on Ebay for $60 with free shipping. Cheaper than the local deal. Now, off I go to Ballenger Motorsports to get connectors.

Have a great day,

My order for connectors from Ballenger Motorsports just shipped out today. I paid them 67 days ago. not a word on why the delay. I admit I only sent one followup message in that time period, but come on!

Mine, too. I actually proactively communicated with them, and know that they didn't get the connectors in from Japan until right about now. From the time they got the parts until they shipped was very short. It was the supplier in Japan taking forever.

What are you waiting for? He just shipped me a set after I saw this photo. They came in the mail fast and are in great condition.
Hopefully I will be putting them on next week.

Wire two of them side by side the positive of one cap to the postive of the other and the negatives together too. Then wire that as per the schematic.
The capacitance value of the two add up.
