    After messing about with my coil packs yesterday...

    I was wondering... do i need the bracket that covers the last two packs?
    I know it suports the engine cover and holds the N274? valve... Is there a way i can still fit the engive cover but do away with this and relocate the N... valve?
    Just to make it easier and less cluttered.

    I ask questions because i change my mind so much. If i ask questions you have already covered... just leave it be?

    Dude... where you been!!... LOL... I have been running like this for years ;P





    Relocate the N249 by extending the wiring... last one I did I fixed it to a bracket under the inlet manifold... mine is living in the little black box on the bulkhead currently..


    There is still a locating tab on the charge pipe bracket to hook the cover onto and then just fix in place using the 2 x screws at the front as usual

    Its easy enough mate... just cut the plug off leaving a decent enough length of wire to reuse then solder an appropriate length or wire to the tails..

    I relocated my N249 down by the oil fiter housing. There is a spare metal tab that the rubber around the N249 valve will slide straight over. Gets rid of that ugly thing.
