      I have a discount on my OE parts and was thinking about running my own set up with new A8 or S4 coils and connnectors? I know i'd have to modify the coils to fit propperly. Think they'd hold up to the boost or have any problems?

      I've heard 2.0T coils are the new ones to go with

      Hmm.. I do already have two good ones laying around from an '07 A4. Might be worth a try. Just need to figure out the wiring. Know of any write ups?

      Seems like the LS1 coils are they way to go, especially cost wise, I just wish I knew someone with a good set of coils around as I'd rather not make a big investment w/o knowing a bit more...

      LS2, not LS1
      ask on quattroforum. There's a bunch of guys around here with spares.
      Zwoobah might have some too

      LS2's are like 450 bucks. Has to be much cheaper to make a kit.

      If you figure out a way let me know. I need to replace mine. Had one fail and the others are not far behind. I was going to go 034 DIS High Output coils but I saw EFI's now. I just wonder if it will stand up to a GT2871 or gt30 turbo set up?

      I would say the 034 HO coils would def. stand up to that, the LS2's I can't speak to...

      LS2s are apparently the better of the two. 034 isn't saying what manufacturer their coils are and when they go, so far you have to get them from them (or so the OTHER forums say)
      Parker, I bet you it's your ignition. Have someone climb in the trunk and listen for the fuel pump.
      These guys always point to fuel but it never actually SEEMS to be fuel (Unless the pump has gone dead)

      Well I tested fuel, just not at cranking. I had 3 plugs that were dark but clean-ish and two plugs that smelled like gas and were a bit gummy, I don't know alot about reading plugs but my intuition is that the gummy/gassy ones are the not firing coils....?

      yeah, my plugs were covered in gas after chasing fuel for countless hours...
      Read up on how to 'test spark'
      Derek can definitely help you with that. Simply remove the plug and coil and put it in the tester and watch for electricity (however, mine were sparking 50% of the time on the tester and then would not spark in the engine)
      I need to decide if I want to go with 2.0T/2.5 Coils (I need to find a junkyard Jetta/Rabbit 2.5) or go to the LS2 system
      The 115S coils I have suck apparently.

      I was also told to take the plugs out, plug them into the boots then rest it on the valve cover while someone cranks and look for spark...

      yeah, that's one way to do it. I'm always terrified of leaving plugs just out and cranking directly into open air... I dunno why. probably because I'm terrified of getting electromuhcuted.

      I would think that 4.2 or even 3.2 coils would hold up better than 2.5's

      D3 A8, I think.
      I think they are the 115S coils.

      No I didn't get any work done this weekend, apartment hunting and working on wheels for the other car. Though I did find a guy on Audifans selling a complete 1.8T conversion for cheap money which I'm thinking about picking up just to be out from under the stock system...
