    Thread: Ford Coil Pack on VR6 with Pics.

    1. 09-28-2009 09:51 AM #106
      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.

      If you don't like that wire, many other options.

      If anyone finds any other options or better prices.
      Post it and give us all the benefit please.

      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 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.

      Cut the ford ends off, keep all six of them... cut the wires of your choice as far as possible towards the end. Take the ford end apart put it on the vw wires in reverse order... It was super easy... I should have did a small video of this....


      Wires I used for his install was
      Bosch wires from Performace Cafe, can be found at the local but cheaper here....

      I used the coil wire for dizzies for a test subject...

      have any of you guys tried using these msd wires for a 3.8l V6 ford mustang?

      here is the link as well...

      http://www.jegs.com/i/MSD/121/32289/10002/-1


      would they be long enough? i would like to make my own wire with new ends... but i cant seem to find ford ends other than that one website... i was hoping i could get them from msd...

      Those wires aren't long enough. Just go to the junkyard and pocket the wire ends and crimp them on. It's kind of a pain to uncrimp the ends just to crimp them on the VW wires but it's cheaper and just as effective.

      This mod is simply too easy not to do and works like stock. Other than being a brand elitist fool you'd be crazy not to do this!

      can someone help me get a OE ford part number? i want it new and with a horizontal connector. where can i get the pigtail for this too, do they sell that seperately? did a little search online and there was a $9 difference on the accel coil depending on car.

      best part about it to me is that it looks stock, although the msd setup is amazingly pimp looking.
