To date 520 pieces have left the CNC's and into boxes out to customers.
Thanks for the support everyone
I received my 1.2 in black today.
The whole in the middle isnt wide enough and couldn't get the mk6 coils to seat properly.
I cut some of the rubber ribs around the coil packs and was finally able to get them to sit flush.
they look pretty good. i will snap a picture when i get home.
I posted a message to Joshua this morning. Send me an email right now if you can
Supply the part # of your coil if you can allthough they should all be the same diameter.
Are you satisfied with the fitment or would you like to return it? What is the part # of the coils you have? 07K or 06H?
The 06E's and 06H units we have trial fitted here and they were pretty much spot on.We didnt want them to be too loose of fitment. So far everyone has been satisfied with the components so if you wish what I can do is on the next batch open up the coil pack bore by a couple thou in order to remove that "super tight" fitment.
shipping has nothing to do with INA as they only hand it to the courier. after that its all up to the fat asses that drive the trucks. i knew ppl that transported boxes, hell i used to work in the shipping department at a very large curtain company and lemme tell you this. truck drivers only get paid so much to drive so slow. anywho hopefully itll be here tonight or tomorow. im not too worried as both bigblue and my cars are down for the count atm. i still will do an unveiling and install photo shoot.
as for the fitment it is meant to be super tight tolerances so that they do not move.
INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS: ( what i will be doing when i get mine)
thoroughly inspect plates and all hardware for damage.
PRE Installation ( im anal about everything being clean)
1. ensure that you have the proper gapped plugs
2 clean the chambers in which the coil packs sit. a rag with some cleaner should do the trick.
3. test fit plate to ensure that all hardware and holes line up
4. remove plate and clean that as well.
1. take a small dab of diluted dish soap and very gingerly aply a thin coat to the rubber on the coilpack
2a. install the plate on the coilpack. (this will make it easier to install as you wont have to mess with the alignment of the bottom to the spark plug)
2b. visually check to ensure that the plate is going the right direction.
3. slide coil pack with plate assy now attached into place. ( you might have to work it a little as the fitment of the coil pack rubber on the spark plug is really snug)
4. coat fasteners with a very small amount of never sieze. ( it should be applied as a small dot. on only a couple of the first threads, it will be plenty to coat as bolt is screwed down.
5. install fasteners until snug. after both are snug tighten them down evenly.
WARNING: If you dont pay attention you may strip the hole to the valvecover as the hardware is steel and the cover is aluminum.
6. rinse wash repeat for the last three plates.
7. hook up your harness to the coilpacks
8. ensure all tools are out of your engine bay i.e rain tray, valve cover and other various makeshift tool holders.
9. you can now start your car and enjoy your new coilpacks.
If you already have a set of the spacers. please do a install write up and include pictures.

And i don't even know the guy!
Though, seriously, Is there any tracking numbers?
I didn't know talking about shipping would cause such a personal vendetta for delivery drivers.
What I personally laughed at is how many comments have been silently deleted that mentioned any fitment issues. I guess it's no surprise given that the product is at it's 3rd revision without even having been around for more than 2 weeks.... but people seem to be doing OK with them and like them so more power to 'em.
Anyways to get back on track. mine should be in tomorrow. i will do a full writeup on how they fit with pictures included. so far i have only seen 3-4 pics of them. hopefully we will see more.
The comments are still there:
With the V1.2's you want a somewhat weather tight seal and not have your coil packs pop out (which is what people want).
Please if you or anyone else have nothing positive to say then simply do not say it.
The "version 3" adapter basically looks like a 2nd revision... so... sorry, 2nd revision, not 3rd. Your "3rd design" now has all these mad nice edge fillets and what not and your first two do not really look anything like 'em. It seems like you copped out with a simple design on the first run to try and beat IE/anyone else to market. This is also not mentioning the fact that your first design was literally a direct clone of what 05GTIMarine had originally posted.... a fry cry from "you asked, we listened" - you basically took all the existing info there was and made the plates. MarineDickRider was crying about IE when pete said they were gonna make them and then homeboy flipped his tone and was all on your dick when you decided to make ones that looked like his idea and now these adapters are the greatest thing since sliced bread.
This whole attitude that you portray about being so innovative and bringing all this "awesome" stuff to the masses at such "affordable" prices (despite the fact this could have been done for $55 shipped out the door with a 30+% profit margin and all the SS hardware and anodizing...) is annoying as ****.
The problem with V1.1 and V1.2 is that they wont work on AEB/AJL/ADR/AYP/etc valve covers without leaving a wide open gap. We were asked if we could make a specific square one (modifying an old AEB design I did years ago) and we did hence a different VERSION not a Revision....
Not sure what part of this you do not comprehend. We have 3 Versions that cater to every possible combination you can imagine which is what the community wants.
You want 2.0T Coils & you want to run ECS coil pack holders - we got that
You want 2.0T Coils & you want it to be flush with your valve cover - we got that
You want 2.0T Coils but you have an AEB engine with a 3-PIN Coil pack and you want to convert to a 4-PIN coil pack - we got that ....
That gives 3 options to anyone looking to run 2.0T Coil Packs.I fail to see where we have gone wrong here so please show me.
When I said difficult to fit I meant I had to climb up onto the slam panel and put my entire bodyweight onto the coil pack to get it to go in and stay down (WITH using a little lubricant on the rubber). Standing beside or in front of the engine bay trying to push them down didn't work. As said there is a big difference between a snug fit and almost impossible to fit.
Even now the coilpack on No.3 sits slightly higher than the rest and won't go down any further.
