First, you need to open up the plug holes. Not much, maybe 1/16". The COPs don't pass through as they are. Then, you need to grind down the stands for the stock coilpacks, on cylinders 2 and 4. Finally there's a lip on two of the cylinders that also needs to be machined off.

To secure them in place, I welded 4 threaded aluminum blocks right next to each COP, on the valve cover. These will be used to place and screw in a small bracket over each COP to hold it down.

The VVT itself was not a problem at all. I'll post pics later on to illustrate.

For all those who have PM'd me. I'm down to my last 1 or 2. I'm just waiting on confirmation from another local on 1 set. If he is 100% in, then I have 1 set left.

That set will probably go to someone in the US. I know, CA/UK etc... guys... i'm being lazy here. I admit it. Shipping overseas just adds so much more crap, like worrying about import taxes... not being able to insure it to avoid them... tricking the rabbit to come out of the hat on command...

All are accounted for as sold at this point folks.

3 local and 3 being shipped.

Shipping to guys, I picked up the boxes today, plan on packing them up and labeling tonight.
