      yea, I'm going to use the gruven bracket just so all the stuff is in the same area, but if this works out you would be able to run this stuff anywhere you wanted

      I rather see the coils set up like VW intended it to look like....I remember I saw a set up that way...got to find it
      I guess now is more to improve on the design rather then a cheaper more reliable alternative

      ok, well I guess I won't be slapping something together tonight to test it.. I forgot that I can't use my stock vr6 wires with these coils.. needs GM ends just thought about that on my drive home.

      Slayer you're right about that harness, it looks like crap. Now when your done testing I'll send you a nice SASE so you could send it my way.
      I'm in jersey and we know about garbage

      Here's a pic of my setup. As u can tell I mounted them the same way the factory did. The bracket isn't very user friendly but I like the look of it.

      Hey Silent! Nice to see you. Been forgetting to check your vwfixx post.


      At least someone missed me.
      I have been busy with the family and fabricating crap for my nitrous install.
      Good to see someone using a different ICM, this just opens more doors.

      I'd try to rotate the coil 90* so the top row of posts runs to back & bottom row runs to the front bank (or opposite that) you'd have less wire crossing also.

      still waiting for ups to come with my wires.. should be wednesday. I was all set to try this out but I realized that I couldnt until I had new wires with the GM ends, otherwise I would have posted if this was working already

      The ICM that you are using did it come from a 6 cylinder wasted spark application ?
      A lot of cars use 7 pin ICMs

      it's from a 98 volvo s90 3.0l 6cyl. are you the guy on vwfixx that posted about the haltech hecu3 icm? if so, this one that i have here should be the same piece.. just haltech relabels it as their own

      Slayer correct me if i am wrong, but you are using the remnants of the stock coil to anchor the bracket to the engine right? Not actually using it for the ICM or anything though?

      yea, basically just using it for a spacer. I could use anything to make up the difference, but i already had that so i figured i'd use it

      I looked to try and find a "male" connector to go into the plug that our VR6 coil pack harness uses so it would be easy to make an adapter harness, but I don't think there is such a thing.. We might just have to snip that plug off and convert it to the bosch 7 pin connector

      OEM VW 357 972 765

      The one to the right.
      The Left one corresponds to the engine harness of a 2000 VR6, therefore I'm 99% sure that the right one is what you are looking for.
      Make sure that you have the old style of connector like on the pictures in the beginning of this thread.
      Otherwise you like myself with the new kind of connector on their coil pack needs the 6X0 973 825 instead.
      These are empty housings. Appropriate crimp/solder pins to match these connector housings is needed for a complete setup.
      Old type rectangular plug.
      000 979 129 for 1.5mm² wire (for 3 wires from ECU)
      000 979 219 for 2.5mm² wire
      For later version of housing. (with one rounded edge)
      000 979 134 for 1.0mm² wire
      000 979 134 A for 1.0mm² wire
      000 979 226 for 2.5mm² wire
      000 979 226 A for 2.5mm² wire
      (rubber plug 357 972 841 5,6X7,8)

      that does in deed look like what i'm after.. i will have to call up a dealer and see if they can get that part
      oh, hey did there happen to be a part number for the pin/connectors for this plug? they are slightly different than the type i had to get for the 7 pin plug (junior timer vs junior power timer)

      Fired up the car for the first time in 5 months ..... using the msd coils and a .7 ohm resistor off a ford mustang i beleieve.... runs AWESOME. Haven't driven it yet, but idle is rock-steady as opposed to last year ...

      Slayer nice find I am nearly set to do the MSDs, a faulty ecu was not letting the golf start we are getting closer now [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      Anyone else running a vortech supercharger with the MSD coils ?[IMG][/IMG]

      Hmm, I recall some FI pics in the old post but I can't recall the exact set-up.
