I think I'm going to get some that even a little bit smaller. He mislead me a little bit on installed height, if I do get the ones that are shorter they will be almost exactly the same size as the spark plug they replaced. I can sell this kit as weight reduction and spark power.

Both being equal in performance gains.

Yea just like your intake manifold mod right?

The boosted mustang guys were getting gains of 20whp with this setup, we could see 10-15. Plus you never have to change a sparkplug wire again.

Yeap. If you have a poor ignition setup, sure you can see gains. Meh, I'll stop posting about this...

And I still believe my intake manifold mod helped. Oh well, no dyno evidence. I know it's not ideal though and I want to change it. Quit wasting your time and get me a 99' intake manifold built (that might actually do something for performance) and I might just buy one.

We are packing twice as much into our cylinders as they are and I gauruntee you our coils are no better. I just talked to mike here in louisville he is running .023 gap just make sure it doesn't misfire. There is a problem here, and whatever the gap your running now is, you can pretty much double it with this COP setup(maybe even more). You will gain power off of this ignition, and you will never misfire.

Your just sore because that intake manifold isn't done yet. The plans are laid, I'm waiting on manufacturers. You guys do know I've now got 5 different manufacturers turning out prototypes for Miata parts. I can lay plans much faster then they can make them.

You got a 99' intake manifold laid out just waiting on it to be manufactured? You suck for making one for a NA head first, you know that right? I still don't get that. Next you can make a badass LSD for a 6" diff!

Keep dreaming pat.

Yea the 94 is laid out, now the 99 isn't, but that's emilio's fault. (don't mean to shove blame ) We'll have the 99 together soon enough. If I get the 99 drawn up before my composite guy gets to the 94 I'll have him make that one first. Quit thread jacking, back to cop setups.

ETA could be announced after the carbon fiber cam gears come out. I'll know more about how long until a full production unit can be had.

I can take dibbs at anytime though.

i work at a shop called race related and we mostly work on the modular motor mustangs, one of my fellow employees owns an 03 mach1 which he just installed wepon x coils on and unfortunately the car ran like ****, it miss fires and stumbled and was just terrible.
hopefully the same issue dosnt arise here.
in order to cut cost the stock mod motor coils might work well.

We haven't had any such problems. I know alot of "weird" things happen on the mustangs. I couldn't imagine anything like that happening unless the install went wrong, or some of the coils were manufactured incorrectly.

The physics principle behind a coil is extremely simple. You've got two silenoids (coils of wire). One coil is larger then the other coil, and the coils are ontop of each other. Current runs through the primary coil and creates a magnetic field. When that current is the reversed the change in magnetic field on the inner coil of wire creats a tremendous amount of voltage and current and causes a spark to fire.

I don't even know how you could manage to manufacture that wrong. Forget to put in one of the coils??? This isn't exactly rocket science.

Ok, the newest board is going to be bench tested today, and this is final version! So as long as everything goes well we will have this on a car working in full production form before next week. Expect them to go on sale in about a week and a half!

It'll be done before then certainly! Everything always takes longer then expected. For now, a screen shot of a sparkplug fired by our system. It sounds like a .22 gunshot!
