    Thread: Ford Coil Pack on VR6 with Pics.

    1. 09-28-2009 09:11 AM #101
      what did you get your wires off of? The ones we got off of a taurus don't look like they'd reach at all...
      by the way... anyone know where to get the wire braces... the brass piece to crimp to the wire and to make the plug part with? Autozone's around here don't sell them... anyone know of a local store that might? PepBoys, O'Reilly, etc?

      I'm not sure I understand your question.
      You are supposed to pull the ends off of your Taurus wires and transplant them on your vw wires.
      I did this though and they barely fit(with stretching them to the max)

      I think he didn't know that, looks like by his question he was trying to use the complete wire from the donor car.

      ie pull the boots off of the ford plugs and put them on the vw wires? I was thinking you'd have to cut the elbow plugs off the vw wires and crimp new hardware to them and then put the ford boot over the new crimped end. I was going off of the DIY that was linked earlier in the thread.

      ding ding ... except I knew the ford plug wires didn't look like they'd fit at all so I was expecting to need to basically make custom plug wires that had one end with the VW plug for the spark plug and the the other with the ford coil pack plug... which is why I was surprised when I saw that "they fit, but barely" ... what I saw there's no way 1 and 6 would ever reach, unless the coilpack was like on top of the manifold... heh... ya think 6 dents up through the hood would look bad?

      Try running the plug wires under the manifold, I haven't got to try this yet, but it should free up some room.

      I've been looking at options.
      I think i'm going to build new wires, custom length because i don't want to take a chance with a set.

      Now that sounds like a good idea. A full custom wire set would runn about 100 bucks, not to shabby.

      Nice to know some people are growing some brains and tossing the VW coil pack in the trash.
      This is my car:

      I am running standard MSD wires and Standard Copper Plugs.
      AWESOME!

      I used the wires from a set of HEI for a small block chevy.
      You can also buy the MSD Super Condictor and make your own.
      There is also another alternative from fourseasonstuning, they make the wires for the coil setup that I have now.
      There should be a whole thread on here by CUBIX some good info in there.

      I made a set of wires yesterday using bosch wires and ford ends. More than enough. I think the plug wires are to long.

      Congrats! As you know its been done before.

      Doesn't matter if it has been done before, it is a job well done. Clean and precise, and well thought out. Did you ask him if he took notes on the other one, or did you just assume he had no imagination of his own?

      i just finished this mod!
      car runs great, idle is smooth, seems stronger (might be placebo).
      i spent $31 dollars, and thats because i bought warranty on the coil pack incase it was dead. all this at the local junkyard. came off a Ford Ranger. i couldn't say what year.
      on to pictures...










      and a picture of the patient:

      all in all very easy mod, the hardest part was dremeling the old coilpack box so the ford unit can fit.
      i took the wires from the ford and cut them at the end and spliced them to my wires, thats not electrical tape at the end its shrink tubing, when money allows, i'll get a nice set of bosch wires and purchase the edis ends from that boost place that sales them.
