      I made and ran one for awhile. No real improvement in anything. If you run with no oil pressure at high revs it may save the head/valves. I try to not do that in the first place.

      The knock sensors won't detect a misfire. If you have an intermittent misfire it will detect it based on an intermittent change in engine speed per rotation. It has seemed to me that if a cylinder is...

      The 2.8 and 3.2 cranks are very different, you lost 5.6mm stroke, 0.2L displacement and likely around 2 points of compression. It will mechanically work but will not be as powerful as the original...

      Usually crank sensor or ignition switch but could be something more rare and hard to diagnose. Usually when the coilpack goes it isn't all three channels at once.

      If you can fit all the vw's sensors it could work. Big challenges will be fitting thr 60-2 crank wheel and distributor.

      It will likely be easier to just get new wiring for the Kia.

      Check for power at the coilpack with key on. You can use vcds to check for rpm and other sensor readings as well. You can check spark with a grounded plug attached to a plug wire.

      I can see them working and helping on some setups but I have never used one on my cars. For street tires left foot control is key.

      Not sure how well those tires work. You can cut high 1.9 on a decent 205/50 street tire with practice. All about slipping the clutch for no spin in first.
