AMU uses the v1.3
I just got my coil packs from Username :beeyond (http://www.whanab.com/) and they are nice, OEM vw with the metal bottoms and I got them quick as hell!! I just put them in and the car does run alot smoother and I havent even regapped the plugs . . . What gap size do you guys use on a chipped 225TT(ko4s) ??

I relocated mine underneath the battery tray.
Also the hold downs aren't necessary because the tolerances on the adapters are so tight.
For street use the unsupported coilpacks are probably fine, but I track my car so I need the extra support to avoid failure. IE is a solid supporter of this marque and do much development and innovation. I have no problem with their pricing - this is a well designed and manufactured piece.
i mean it has a 3 holes in it also. the center hole also has slots cut in it. it also is in a needed shape.
your argument of it being a piece of metal is the most assinine argument I have seen in a while.
With that logic you can say IE's cams are just hunks of metal. Pistons are just slugs of metal. A home is just a pile of wood and cement. You are just a bag of water and protien.
If the price is so outrageous, people should not be buying them. People DO buy them, so that right there tells you the price is fine.
80-90$ for 4 pieces of metal isnt really that much. If you were to go to metal supplier and ask for half inch plate in a 12inx6in section of aluminum they would charge you in the range of 30$. The would be enough material to make you a set of 4, maybe more, but for sure not 8.
Paying 50$ to have the pieces cut, the holes drilled, slots cut all on tooling that costs over $10,000, THEN have it annodized and a gaurentee it will fit......
tell me, who is the unrealistic one with his head up his ass?
Oh don't forget the longer bolts to hold them down!!!
Sometimes you don't realize how much designing goes into simple things. Not to mention how much machining is done to get the tolerances so fine. I paid 85 shipped for 4 and bolts. You figure 20 for each spacer and 5 for bolts. That's more then reasonable in my eyes.
Sorry to keep bumping this, but do you also need to actually upgrade your actual coil wiring as well? I.E. makes it seem as if you do...
I was planning on just getting the Tiguan Adapter or just wrapping the wiring up in thermal wrap, what did everyone else use?
If your harness connectors are 4 pin they are plug and play. The b5 1.8t are 3 pin and therefore need to be switched. All TT's will work with these.
I just bought some from O'Reilly Auto and they are BWD or Borg Warners. They look like the Red ones but are black. Pulled one out of the box and noticed they did not have the Square Hold downs with provision to bolt them down. They said it is what is called for my 2002 AMU. Are these not good to use?
