      1.8T using 2.0tsi coil packs for better spark ???

      So I have an 01 225 TT (AMU)

      I'm interested in replacing my coils with the 2.0t ones to get a better spark, Etc . .

      anyone do it yet ?

      for an 01 AMU what all is needed besides the coils and spacers/adapters ?

      Thx

      Nothing else needed, just plug and play! I don't have any personal experience with them but a few on this board made the switch and can give you their impressions.

      Personally, I think if I'm going to the trouble of upgrading, I'm going with with the GMC Yukon coils for a real performance improvement and increase reliability (plug dwell needs to be adjusted however for optimal efficiency).

      Black Coilpack part # 06E 905 115
      Red Coilpack part # 06E 905 115E

      You may want to look into the metal spacers also (they make for nice tight installation).

      It needs to be done through software. Tunable software like maestro makes it easy or you can go with the Neftmoto tricks but it's more involved.

      I'm kinda dumb.... A spark is a spark, but timing is everything. What do different coil packs do for performance that stock ones wouldn't do?

      A spark is not a spark! Well it is but there is more to it than that; if you can keep the energy constant (stronger coils) the usable gap can be wider therefore igniting the mixture more efficiently. There is also other things to consider like durability of the coil and how much heat they can take before loosing efficiency.

      it looks like the Canadian company has best price when it comes to adaptors and coilpacks as it has free shipping to USA and both have Canadian company and ttstuff have old pricing as IE went up to $79.99 on both types of spacers square and round (like the square) there is one other found that is close maybe better depends on where being shipped.

      Exactly . . . I think the pricing being pushed around are alittle on the heavy side . . . and reading on the forums of threads while these were being developed the price has gone up since then considerably

      I honestly don't see the need for the spacers aside from ascetics and keeping stuff from falling in there.

      I have the 2.0T red coils and those things are IN THERE- you need to use some force to get them off the plugs.

      whether round or square knowing my luck something would fall in LOL...

      Mine too. Spacers aren't really necessary. And if anything gets dropped down there, that's what the shop vac is for

      i personally like the 034 adapters, feels the holes that the IN ones leave. plus they got the colors.

      The F coil i believe is the latest revised coil design. I chose those along with red 034 adapters.



      my question is... what about the bracket that supports all the vac lines on top of the coils???

      There is no difference between the 034 adapters and the INA units
