      yep 4" or 76mm

      ive decided to wait until erevlydeux comes out with his as i dont want to step on someones toes when we as a whole want the cheapest solution without having to buy from a company that solely looks at profit. if we get 10, 36 bucks is a steal. ive already put down that ill take 2 for myself and my buddies a4. so thats 4 or 5 so far. need 4 or 5 more and hopefully we will have a solution.

      theres the image.
      priced out for a lot of 40 which is 10 sets and alowing 25 days of lead would come out to about 31 dollars a set not including the 4 dollars in hardware. so 35 dollars altogether without shipping.

      I bet if you take out that chamfer operation it would get reduced another few dollars.

      add brightgolf as im buying his set for him. and i drew it up on emachineshop.com to verify prices. and the chamfer did not affect pricing at all. you want the chamfer in there so that you can get the coilpack in smoothly. and the rounded edges clean it up compared to the 034 set with has excess material and looks like they through the idea together in 5 min. we are up to 8 i believe.

      If you are interested. pls put your area code in with it so that we can get an idea on shipping pls

      As far as the chamfer, I just wouldn't bother with it on the outer edge with that design... mostly because I think it'd gonna look poopy because they'll never be able to keep that crisp wing/circular edge with the chamfer. I have to make some adjustments then I'll post up a picture of what I have in mind.

      good to go. and once again i did it because you recommended it as well as another and i wanted to see what 8mb of cad programming could do. im def gonna wait for yours and ill be in touch with you.

      brightgolf and i are backing out as these are not what we want.

      problems:

      1. they will not allow fitment of the ecs hold downs we already have as with others.
      2. the notches will not allow the proper seal as this is the main goal of the plate in the first place.
      3. your making 30 dollar profit on test plates. per set. so 3-400 dollars on a run. what happened to at cost. i already got flamed for ppl thinking i was trying to make a profit.
      4. they look like **** and poorly planed.


      theres no positive as these wont work and wont seal.


      im going back to the drawing board and redesigning them to:
      fully seal the coilpack
      ensure that they accept ecs hold downs
      and are strong enough to hold up to constant heat changes.

      40 plates = 10 sets at approx 7-8 dollars a plate your looking at 32 dollars a set of plates and 4-6 dollars in hardware. then add shipping and we will probably be at around 40-45 dollars/set.

      there will be no profit on my side as i will pay what you are paying for the same product the more we get the cheaper it will be. i will even provide all documentation to reassure you that i am not making any profit. this section of the forum is not meant to make money. if you want to make a profit go post in the classifieds.

      Instead why don't we focus on I don't know, the actual coilpacks and spark plug gap? Instead of machining little adapters that are not absolutely necessary if you swap your valve cover.

      Or if you flatten, bend and drill some metal then toss in some material to be a phenolic spacer, DIY coilhold downs for like 10$.

      PLEASE FFS this thread is for technical information on testing new ignition coils and spark, not a group by on 40 different designs on coilpack hold downs.

      To get the thread back on track mine are on the truck to me now, I have some brand new plugs pregapped to .040 and will be putting everything in after work today. This will be on a 2001 Audi TT AMU.

      i understand that and i will be making a thread corresponding to this one so that i can offer to those wanting to test the coilpacks, and have them secured to the valvcover properly.

      sorry for causing "drama"

      yeah, I'm not seeing all the issue here about needing spacers... Toby does make great stuff, I'll give him that.

      What I will say though is, if you want a spacer to seal the difference in height and use the hold downs. It would cost roughly $50-$100 to have the valve cover modified, as in weld spacers on and grind it down to look OEM.
