I've seen a couple of cars over the years with the coil pack/module relocated to the heater box blockoff plate.

Is this as simple as lengthening the harness to the module and running longer plug wires?

What plug wires were used?

Thanks,
-Banning.

Just a thought. It looked cool when I saw it, and uses the large open space of the heater box blockoff plate.

Yep, just lengthen the module harness, and longer plug wires.

While it will vary some, the wires (Belden part no.s) I have on my car are:

#1 845X
#2 820X
#3 836X
#4 820X
#5 840X
#6 816X

8 meaning 8mm
Then the wire length
X terminal configuration.

You do want to *bundle* them so that they don't flop around, and fracture internally.

Makes top end engine work easier, and engine R+R quicker.
Keep em up *high* so they don't get too hot from the exhaust.
Be sure to use some electrical grease on the plug ends, and module connector.

OK, Steve W match that...... <G>

PS, this is with my 6 Pak Coil Set-up, but I used the same wires on the DIS coil set-up. Yes, they have that none trick look.

The wires on my S'charged Park Ave are long and have the correct ends. I wonder if they would fit?
Too short, from the ones I looked at, I wound up having to go wire by wire to get all the right lengths.

Match that? heck, I went under the dash to to wire something last summer and got lost in the maze. Just before Christmas, I saw a St Bernard pass by and followed him out to safety.

Pull it all out, lay out whatcha want/ need, then thread it into the car.....

If you moved the module and coilpack, then you would have room for a deeper, bigger volume plenum, that might give you better air flow distribution. Right, Bruce?

cut a hole in the hood and mount the tb in the middle aiming straight up.

Then you would have room front and back. Could keep two bags of take out Chinese food warm in those locations. :sw:

Do they use goat in Chinese Food?.
Sounds like possibly a conflict in interest with your posing that.... :)
