I am not a fan of welding to cast aluminum, but to each is own
Bosch COP's? or separate coils and wires?
And you say you don't need it, but this is the read I was talking about LINK
There is a pic of a VR pickup sensor in the vid REPOMAN posted and someone posted a link of an aftermarket trigger setup to mount to your exhaust cam where your dizzy would be.
Bosch coil is what I ordered. They are what my VEMS guy runs on his 16vt. Maybe why he doesn't need a cam sensor? This part still has got me too, used to running cam positioning sensors. I put a call into him so I will let you know why it is not needed as soon as I find out.
Small update, leather boots came in from Poland last night. Threw them on real quick. Nothing big, just some eye candy...

(IN MS) You don't need a cam sensor to run semi-seguential. (please keep in mind I am no pro to MS or engine tuning, getting there) From what I understand is that my injectors are firing batch at 2 squirts per engine cycle, therefore I am spraying fuel into an intake ports when 1 valve is closed. I am running wasted COP (settings) & do not know if I can go straight coil on plug being that I am still semi sequential. I would figure I am sparking and fueling on my exhaust stroke in 2 cyl's per cycle, which is an absolute waste of electrical energy, heat & time on COP, with the biggest, being direct shots of fuel, due to pooling. I may be completely off, but have read & heard that full sequential fuel and spark is the best way to go for power & economy
Nice boots BTW
I just wouldn't do spark, with running a bosch 044 coil pack. will be running wastespark. Don't really see any benefit to changing it. Other than if a coil goes bad I'm replaceing a pack and cop can replace one coil....Why won't spark be sequential? Fuel then spark, for each cyl "sequentially" unless you don't have separate ignitors.
Nice boots BTW
Busted out the old HVLP 2 bar gun. Picked up the paint for the engine bay. Going to spray base coat clear coat instead of a single stage paint. Twice as durable once cured....
I don't think I'm going to shave the bay, it will be a very clean non shaved bay though
Not that I have anything against shaved bays, they really do look nice. This still is my daily driver I'm building and occasionaly I need to take a step back and remind myself of that.(<--- six puck clutch)
Started getting the engine bay ready for paint, much more prep but a good start:

Done with this damn thing! Going non abs:

Started getting the car back on it's wheels.
Got the Girling 60 calipers on.
Ceramic painted the rears also:
A tight fit:
New axles came in:
Popped the ends off the old ones and put them in the spindles so I can push this car around without damaging the wheel bearings:
Car outside getting ready to paint engine bay:
