      /Very nice setup [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      Can anyone please briefly go over the process of putting the ford ends on the VW spark plug wires? I think it would help to clarify that a bit, With pictures perhaps...
      Cheers

      I didnt take pics of that part of the install. I'll cripm the vw ends on the ford wires when I get off work for kicks and take pics of that.... It'll give you a good idea on the ford ends... Only difference is you have to slip the plastic clip over the wire itself be4 the boot, and finally crimping the brass terminal on... I'll have those pics tonight for ya.

      ok so the diy is amazing and the terminal conversion kit is amazing. but has anyone ever purchased the actual coil pack setup they sell and if so is it as good as just making one youself or better.

      Well... I dont know about the quality of their coil, but the price is amazing... I paid $80 for the coil, and another $20 for the connector through work.

      will this conversion hold up on a turbo setup?

      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

      Any luck on this? it would be cool if you didn't have to swap the ends... But either way this is a cool mod.

      Thanks a lot for the trick, I got mine done over the weekend. The coil was the factory so it look pretty rough. Thanks again. I will post some pics latter. [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I did some leg work and found a list of cars with the particular coilpack we need ... if your scrounging the junk lots... look for these cars ...
      2000-2001 Mazda MPV : C901
      98-2000 Ford E-250 Econoline
      1997-2000 Ranger
      89 - 97 thunderbird
      1995 - 2001 Mazda B3000
      1996 - 1999 Mercury Sable
      1995 - 2000 Contour
      1990 - 2000 Mercury Cougar
      1995 - 2000 Mercury Mystique
      1996 - 1998 Ford Taurus
      1998 - 2000 E-150 Econoline
      1995 - 2000 Windstar
      1998 - 2000 F150
      I'm not sure if this is an exhaustive list, but it does open up the search pattern a bit.
      of course look for 6 cylinders... and the only difference you'll find is the ICM plug being vertical vs horizontal ...
      Looking for ONE Luff M1 19x8.5 5x112 et48 wheel... please let me know if you have one available.

      for reference ... if you're going to autozone to pick one of these up ... C901 has the horizontal plug and C925 has the vertical plug I believe

      if you're dead set on getting new parts and don't "risk" the junk yard route... their kit is extremely well priced... the coilpack alone from autozone is like 65 bucks ...
      however... for 43 bucks I picked up 2 coilpacks and 13 plug wires and ICM plugs/wires to wire it to the vw ICM ...

      Just to let you guys know, you can use the 1990-1997 Explorers (or really anything with the 4.0L V6) coilpacks.
      That'll make it MUCH easier to find
      (Note, this also includes the variants, Ford Ranger (bronco 2 i think) and a bunch of minivans
