      I have been doing a little bit of research on the 1.8t to 2.0t coilpack conversion settup... The only thing that I am having a hardvtime figuring out is the type of coil to use, fsi or tsi. I have a 2001 jetta with the AWW engine code... What coil would I be leaning more towards?

      Thanks,
      Kay

      FSI...but you can use the TSI.

      So it really doesn't matter which one? I'm planning on chipping the car up to stage 2 next summer... Do the same specs apply? Obviously the spark plugs would change...

      Engine type doesn't matter, only relevant factor is boost pressure to determine plug gap

      In other words.

      Buy appropriate adapter for your specific valve cover style.

      buy coil pack # 07K 905 715 F

      I really like the red packs... from my understanding they are about the same as the black packs... Can anybody say otherwise?

      Bremi STI coils are red and don't require any extra hardware. You don't need a bigger coil / gap for a stage 2 car.

      Okay kiddos, so I did my conversion yesterday:

      MkV red 2.0t fsi coil packs
      Red Integrated Engineering Adapters
      Red coil pack harness protecter
      NGK BKR6EIX Iridium spark plugs tapped at .035



      So far so good! My only question is about the gap... It's definitely a trial and error sorta thing, as all cars are different. My car is not yet reflashed or chipped... But it does have:

      2.5" catback exhaust
      3" downpipe with a highflow cat
      Air intake
      Forge DV
      Race N75
      and will be installing a new smic and MAP sensor

      Do you think that it is an appropriate gap and spark plug combo?

      I don't think the coils are much stronger. Maybe you can gap them a little more. I think the main hope is the longevity of a more developed coil. LS2 coils are where you wanna go for big spark gaps.

      I gapped them at .035... Should I just put them back to .028-.032?

      I would drive around a week or two and check the plugs every once in a while. If they look okay then you're probly fine

      You have no reason to widen the gap or whatever. "IF" they are more reliable put them at .028 or .032 and let them be. You won't gain a thing by changing the gap on a stock turbo.

      So today I got a uni stage 2 flash... I am currently running NGK bkr6eix Iridium spark plugs at a gap of .33... So now I should go with NGK bkr7... Iridium or coppers?
