      did the converson easy as hell but if your going to do it get extra ford end caps if your going to put the ford ends on the end of your stok wires not far from plug and play the hole set up cost me 35$ pluged it in fierd it up looks stok and what seems to me to be twice the spark

      I haven't see those old GM pics in years! LOL!

      This seems the best method as not all of us still live at home. We can't be dumping money and time on custom setups, like we're planning on boost


      Good thread that PDF doc was excellent.

      When you look at the MSD pic with the ICM, look carefully and you'll see my (C) copyright.

      That was me that made the original wiring diagram with the 6 MSD coils, this was done in response to a question another member had.

      He was intrigued by this set-up, I have nothing to do with this one, nor is he using the VR6 ICM.

      So I made this diagram below for the forum member. With this diagram, others have chosen the 3 MSD coils and have made brackets. I have not made a cent off this, nor do you see credit given. As long as my name isn't erased from the diagram, people will make the connection. No pun intended.

      Well thank you very much for figuring this out... it has helped alot of the people in this community... here's to you...

      Thinking about doing this, did you have to change the spark plug gap?

      Just bought a coil, set of windstar wires. Trying to find the plug, and I'll be on my way. This seems way easier than the GM coils.... Almost too easy?!?

      How about the 2001-03 Windstar coil pack?

      Looks like the coil towers might fit with the VR6 wire ends.

      Here is a Windstar wireset. Looks like Bremi/Beru etc ends, but I can't really tell from the small pic.

      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

      /Very nice setup

      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.

      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.

      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.
