      does this apply only for the MK3 12V vr6? or could this be done on a mk4 too?

      how you worked the sparkplugs cable ends??

      it should work on the MK4 too since its basically the same engine

      well I cut out the plug ends of some accel wires I found in the junkyard and I filed them down to a bit above the ring and they fit very tight in the VW sparkplug ends (like extenders) and they reach all the way down to the ford coil pack
      no need to change the sparkplugends....

      UPDATE.. car runs better much smoother and crisp and Im getting 27.9 mpg from the MFA yes I know its not accurate but for the last 3 yrs I been getting 21 going doww hill...so yes its an improvement

      Has anyone been able to confirm/deny if this Windstar coil pack uses the stock VR6 plug to coil ends? That would be cool!

      How about the 2001-03 Windstar coil pack?
      Looks like the coil towers might fit with the VR6 wire ends.
      Here is a Windstar wireset. Looks like Bremi/Beru etc ends, but I can't really tell from the small pic.

      The MSD 8224 coils are waayyyyyyy better
      40 000 +volts to each plug.

      just spend the money and stop screwing with Ford stuff......

      cost me $65 all together with a stock look, not much need to modify stuff and the car definitely runs better now........ just another alternative for the coilpack...lets not get into sticking with brand specific stuff now

      Hello, I saw your ultra cool junkyard coil conversion and i want to do the same. I went to the local junk yard and found a coil pack that looks the same from a Mercury. Its a Motocraft coil pack part #F5SU-12029-AA. I'm a little confused though because the ford pack has cylinder numbers in a different configuration. For example,
      VW=5/2, 3/4, 1/6. Ford=4/3, 6/2, 5/1.? So do i just ignore what the sticker says on the Ford coil pack and put the spark plug wires as if it was the vw pack??

      did the converson easy as hell but if your going to do it get extra ford end caps if your going to put the ford ends on the end of your stok wires not far from plug and play the hole set up cost me 35$ pluged it in fierd it up looks stok and what seems to me to be twice the spark

      I haven't see those old GM pics in years! LOL!
      This seems the best method as not all of us still live at home. We can't be dumping money and time on custom setups, like we're planning on boost

      Good thread [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] that PDF doc was excellent.

      When you look at the MSD pic with the ICM, look carefully and you'll see my (C) copyright.
      That was me that made the original wiring diagram with the 6 MSD coils, this was done in response to a question another member had.
      He was intrigued by this set-up, I have nothing to do with this one, nor is he using the VR6 ICM.

      So I made this diagram below for the forum member. With this diagram, others have chosen the 3 MSD coils and have made brackets. I have not made a cent off this, nor do you see credit given. As long as my name isn't erased from the diagram, people will make the connection. No pun intended.

      Well thank you very much for figuring this out... it has helped alot of the people in this community... here's to you...

      Just bought a coil, set of windstar wires. Trying to find the plug, and I'll be on my way. This seems way easier than the GM coils.... Almost too easy?!?

      so I found one of those coilpacks and the cable fits the only problem is the "tube" of the coilpack is too long... nothing a little bit of trimming would fix.. now the order of fire has to be figure out
