I think it is Yoshifab that machines a cut down distributor for the 16v setup. That way you can remove the distributor and use the crab cap for best clearance.

Yes that is correct.

VAG coils even fit under the stock spark plug cover.

Worth it just so you can say vag while talking about your car.

JohnMc 08-20-2020 10:01 PM

Look out, it's the VAG COPS!!!

Don't they blow out with judicious boost though?

Only if you get the old OEM ones from a junkyard. So basically what any TBer would do.
The updated replacement ones are a lot better. Iím waiting for Asher to come in here and tell use that they all suck.

So the VW kids go for R8 coils because they are long and red then?

You talking about 1.8t or 16v VW?

HOOOOOOLD the horses, I was using Toyota COPS, not VAG COPS. Derped my mind.

Not nearly as fun.

They were doing fine at 24-ish PSI w/E85.

You got a part number on those Toyota COPs? I tried a few different ones but they were not having it.

UF314? Something like that. They fit the 2ZZGE Toyota motor.

They're also 'logic level trigger - no need for a driver, no real need to sweat the dwell settings in MS, just run 12V/GND/TRG to them and let them figure out how to zap.

You have to lop off part of it - mostly the plastic flange (it's circular, a bit too wide to fit down in the Volvo plug hole all the way).

Harlard 08-21-2020 01:37 PM

Weird. I bought one of those to test and it stuck out way too far.

culberro 08-21-2020 01:37 PM

Many thanks! Those are definitely not the coils I tried using.

Edit: Harald, we will never figure this out...

GTJordan 08-21-2020 01:50 PM

I'm interested in COP options for my 16V also. Prefer they had their own logic.

Could be that the cheapo coil I bought off Amazon for $16 could have been something not at all like advertised:

Ford triton V8 ones seems the right lenght. Anybody try those?

JohnMc 08-21-2020 02:24 PM

Here's a couiple of quick pics I snapped (the motor is just sitting in the garage until I get the urge to put it in the PV):

Will try without the seal, brb.

JohnMc 08-21-2020 02:44 PM

I removed the sides of the palstic flange the seal sits on. That's how it can sit all the way down in the rectangular depression in the head.

There's a spring inside the coil tip that engages the sparkplug - once the coil goes on the plug it will go down a fair distance.

Still, it's hard to judge, but your coil looks a bit longer. Like it's the same 'basic' coil, but there's that spacer below the main body - holding the boot.

Hopefully, along with a roll cage. A lightweight rusty shell with primitive steering, brakes, suspension and insane HP. What could possibly go wrong?
