    Coil conversion

    Hi all,
    Is there any suppliers for the Coil Conversion loom in the UK? What would be the best source for parts?
    Thanks in advance.

    Corey at quattronics does the harness for £170 + postage i am on the hunt for this as well have been given another source but still need to confirm price.............Note of caution if you are thinking of moding engine past 360bhp stick with OEM as 1.8 coils struggle after that

    235 with the coils including delivery, uses the latest R version. For the record. Glad you got sorted

    OOps Sorry for that Corey, from the 034 site I understood they were without coils. Hope I didn't offend anyone...

    Coils are read for delivery or collection after paying VAT of course.

    Arrived yesterday. Excellent workmanship, fits in 15minutes...
    WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!!!
    Unfortunately no roads long and uncongested enought to properly try it out but i reckon this is the best investment you can make for your stock S Audi....

    Next.... An exhaust that doesn't take away all the sounds that its supposed to be making.... any suggestions?

    Well recieved the coils eventually today ....took a bit longer to get here thanks customs!!...........Anyway fitted them today

    Stuck them on the S2 was going to be the S4 but was one coil playing up so used one of the S2 to fix.....The difference is really good!!........the car is picking up faster and much stronger engine noise

    A few pics and little story of fitting........ 20 minutes job done

    Well it is straight forward you get the harness for the coils 5 colipacks and vented cover

    Took off orignal coil cover






    Took off boost pipe to get in to earth for the coils(three bolts at the back )







    Disconnected leads that go on POS






    The other 2 leads that come off sit on rail, so slide out make job easier of getting them off






    The harness is complete plug and play...so just plug into feeds for POS







    The ends for the rail slide in as well so making it very neat






    Coils plug straight on top just like 1.8t engine




    ]

    Pop them all in connect the earth leads





    Then the cover and you are done






    Start engine .look over all wiring to make sure no split or arking and test run .........You should notice the difference straight away !!!

    This is the best £200 i have spent on this car

    This process will be exactly the same with the S4 (minus the boost pipe)

    Benefits:
    Performance smoother
    Cost for replacement Coil third of the price
    Fault finding much easier now as well
    Easier access to coils and plugs now for servicing

    This product came from here

    Thank you Brendan from Apikol top bloke[
