Hello to all,

I remember seeing posts about a coil on plug setup but I can find the thread!

Is there an existing coilpack that fits nicely without modification on our engines? I've been looking around in a scrap yard to try to fid something that might fit but still haven't found a winner!

Maybe a motorcycle coil ? If anyone has info please let me know!

Thanks

If I recall correctly some of the 16v SOHC motors were built that way.

My 1999 Swift 1.3 is like that. It has 2 coils, each firing 2 plugs. The coil is mounted on one plug, and has a very short plug wire going to the plug beside it.

I wish to put this setup on my DOHC, I doubt that the coils from a SOHC will fit in the head of the DOHC but I'll check...

Of what I recall SOHC never had coil on plug, they had has Mr Pipe said, 2 coils with short plug wires... That's not what I'm aiming for... I want to fit 4 coils packs with no plug wires (like a VW 1.8t, a Nissan Maxima, or many others)...

Any info will be appreciated!

Yamaha R1 bikes have a single coil on plug setup with long reach also.

Wow! This is an old post!

Update:
I've gone with vw 1.8t coil on plug. They work great and fit nicely with very little mod to the valve cover.

Where's a picture of the work in progress

That looks good, when you say 'mod to valve cover' what does that involve? is the height of the plug correct? I might look at changing my quad bosch coils over to these :D

I welded in some sleeves to hold the coilpacks in place. they are about 1.25'' high with the proper bore for the coilpack.

That's it!

I'm running MegaSquirt. You need a stand alone computer to run Coil on Plug. The stock ECU needs the distributor!

This is what the project looks like now:

They do look very nice.

What is the difference between the car and bike coil packs. surely if it can handle 14000 rpm on CBR's, GSXR's and R1's it can candle measly 9000 in a swift or am I missing something?

I honestly don't know. I had easy access to these coilpacks to test fit, and they are dirt cheap. You can get them at a VW or audi dealer for little over $30.

Those are the only reason I picked them! I don't know if there better or worse than an other coilpack, All I know is that the fit well, there inexpensive and the car runs great! :)
