phenolic coilpack spacer

Recommended Posts

updated add - second batch now available for some people that missed out on the first or didnt see the post , iv kept the origional add below

 

Hi all i hope this is ok to post on here

 

after owning my vr for 7 years and going through three coil packs i thought id adapt the same idea as my phenolic inlet manifold gasket to the coil pack to help protect it and prolong the life of it

 

iv had the idea for a while and decided to get this sorted as there are non available to buy in the uk

 

its a 6mm pacer cut plate with four new allen head bolts to fit directly to the car , it sits on the side of the engine and in between the coil pack to stop the metal to metal contacting and transfaring heat which in return after time is what makes them crack causing misfires and bad running

iv already sold a few but have about nine left but could get some more done if there is demand for them

 

id like 25 pounds for one posted

 

coil packs are pretty expensive these days for a decent one and if your like me then your probably sick of them cracking

 

you can pm me on messenger if you would like one or have any questions

 

im having problems with loading pictures to the forum and i cant seem to find the corrado forum on tapa talk so if you would like pics i can send them via whats app or messenger no problem

my number is 07980690184

 

message anytime im up most of the day and night

Sounds like a good idea - I'm on a distributor, but would definitely go for one of these if I had a coil pack car. As an aside, is there any real reason for why it has to be attached to the head at all? Surely you could just have it mounted safely away from the block and the heat. Does it earth via the block?

its the ht leads that would need to be made longer and in my opinion would make it look a bit scruffy

another thing that i thought of was making something to relocate but people like parts to be in the standard place that vw put them

 

the plate only takes 10 mins to fit and drops the temps of the coilpack so works really well

 

and as for the eearh there is no problems at all

it still works perfectly and iv been runni g on on my supercharged car for the last few months

i think so mate , i did some testing with a digital temp gun and the coil pack was cooler each time with the spacer installed

considering they break so often ,judging by how many bad running threads you see due to coilpack failure (they always crack ) and wanted threads for second hand coilpacks id say this wasnt a bad investement considering the price of a good quality new one
