Driving home from work friday i was barely 5 kms down the road when i came out of a corner, up-shifted early and loaded it up on boost and it started to miss! engine light flashed and all the usual shit ... anyways about 10km down the road it came good and i got home without another miss, but it prompted me to finish the LS1 coil conversion pending the likely imminent failure of the ebay coils (installed early feb)

So i set about fabricating up a bracket to attach to some very handily located threaded bosses on the block

I also got the chance to use the new lathe to turn up some alloy spacers for the coils, unforunately ran out of the larger diameter rod but it does the job!

There's just under an inch or so of clearance, thats good enough for me! Good thing bonnets are curved!

I would still like to see if i can find the right lead to go down into the plug hole and have a correct seal at the top of the head, but this gets me going for the time being and the FX doesnt need the leads at the moment anyways!

I will most likely not touch this again lol but i may end up cutting the plugs off and re-wiring them directly into my multi coloured loom and tidy it all up but for 4pm today it will get me back on the road!

And yes i did go for a test run around the block with that plug disconnected :roll: from what i can see its only a pcv return to inlet!
