Come on, spill the beans tufty!! Most of us are running these anyway lol.
Thought some tests had been done and results were disappointing?Quote:

If its just the spacers then these are just engine bay dressing. Loads of us have been running these coil packs without any spacers for months.
Yup, im one mate, would like to fit the spcaers for looks but also on cylinder 4 mine keeps popping up so hopefully these would help.
Ahh nice idea on the material. I assume it's cheaper then using anodised aluminium too.Quote:

Any update on time frames for these B5 adaptors? I'm in the market for some at the moment....
Mildly related....what is the consensus on spark plugs to match 2.0TFSI coils on a K04 powered car?
Any update Bill? My wallet is twitching....
Already posted this in my build thread but worth posting here as its relevant
Fellow ASN'r Aragorn sent me an interesting link to one of the yank sites... interesting in particular as it was totally down my OEM street...
...yes... thats right... actual OEM (from VAG) coil pack adaptors suitable for TFSI coils... they need trimming for use on cam covers with push down coils though as you can see they protrude out the bottom... the engines these come from (VAG V8's typically) used the bolt down type of coil originally... guess VAG decided this would be an easier way to migrate over to push downs rather than retool for new cam covers...
This how they sit pre-modding...
Time to get the dremel out...
...note that you need to be sure you have trimmed it right as due to the nature of the fixings they won't take too kindly to being removed and refitted too many times...
So, final fit...
With the TFSI coil pack in...
...and comparison to a coil not using an adaptor....
All in all a great result... while they may not look as 'bling' as the aluminium ones kicking about they work out at about £2 each from a dealer (part number in the pic below)
For bolt down cam covers they look a bit like this....
Couple more pics... sorry it was getting dark by the time I had gotten around to sorting the others...
Pleased with my adaptors that cost less than a tenner :)
Would this upgrade give better MPG?
Sparking the fuel more efficiently i would be under the impression it would.
and 2. it looks to be a fairly straight forward procedure even for the most non mechanic retard?
Thanks a lot this really helped.
Tuffty did you notice any difference using the TFSI coil packs?
I wonder if it will feels anything on my stage 1 AMK
There is no evidence that they give any performance figures, so you won't feel anything. From what I have read, they allow you to run a bigger spark plug gap, which is supposed to create a better burn in the chamber. Who knows how anyone is going to prove that.
I was running TFSI in my AMK with stage 2, got new 1.8t coil packs now and when I had the stage 2 map there was no difference at all.
stock map now because its too hot here in Dubai.
i think TFSI are just more reliable than the 1.8t coil packs.
I must be the only person that does not have any of these yet
Or I will be doing some time soon pal
Don't bother, I can't tell any difference.
No gains have been reported.....just more smoothness in the delivery.
Since I had mine remapped mid last year I've been getting the odd hiccup on cold start ups- so hopefully some new tfsi coil packs will bring it all up to date again and run more smoothly :)
So I've got myself some Tfsi coilpacks, oem plastic adapters and a set of NGK BRK7E spark plugs.
Looking to fit it all this weekend and just want to double check what gap I should/can run with these....I've seen mentions of 0.8 and 0.85
My spec is in my sig- basically stage 1 with DP and sports cat.
These guys stock all these bits, tempted to get it all here. Including what I'd need for my AGU.
Its not too much work, change the connectors for the coils and bridge the appropriate wires at the ICM connectors.
So finally red or black TFSI coil packs are better?
I have the following part numbers:
RED MKV FSI Coil Packs - 06E 905 115
BLACK MKV FSI Coil Packs - 07K 905 715 F
BLACK MKV TSI Coil Packs - 06F 905 115 F
Which ones to go for?
Also a friend got Beru ones numbered: 0040102061, and they correspond to VAG part number: 077 905 115t
What are these?
The ones I am using are 07K 905 715 F
Will these fit a Bam Engine?
