    4 phase 2 coils??

    that would be interesting..

    You are aware that the MY98 setup may be easier, as it doesnt have the inbuilt ignitor as the my00 does.

    Now you are testing me knowledge..

    okay so MY98 Coils would be easier then..

    I was thinking of converting to wasted spark and then thought why not just use 4 coils..

    Just wire them to ecu and then use one set of HT lead connections.. blank the other off with some duct tape..

    Or am I missing something??

    Only issue I can see is space.. I am sure I can squeese them on my inner wings somewhere.. just HT lead length the only restriction.

    Either that or I just chicken out and go for the Bosch coils..

    Paul,

    I noticed you had two bosch coils and two coil packs.. ?

    Did you have trouble with 4 bosch coils? unreliable coils and ended up back at two OE or something else?

    How many pennies is MSD going to cost me?

    I wouldnt go with std coilpacks as I have had them arc over internally as with bosch coils..

    I would not bother with msd for your needs..

    Someone suggested (think it was Moray) mounting the OE coilpacks remotely and use HT leads to reduce the heat induced short life of them..

    might be another consideration..

    Still prefer the Phase 2 or now it would seem phase 1.5 coils..

    David,

    when did your standard coil packs arc over internally? Did you isolate the HT leads from the triggers on the bosch coilpacks?

    Tempted to say manifold too as I would love to reverse it but not enough spare money to do that.

    I had a mix yes. I had a bosch coilpack go a few weeks ago and wired in 2 standard coils instead to free up some space. I will replace the remaining 2 bosch units when I get round to it.

    HT leads are trouble in themselves too.

    I wired up the phase 1.5 coil when i had a misfire. Dead easy.

    Drop me an e-mail Simon and we can discuss the finer points if you want it

    80 for a set of HT leads, doesn't seem cheap to me.

    Bosch leads cost about 30 for a set, but not recommended for CDI type ignitions.

    I would rather replace coilpacks every 5-10 years myself.
