This is defenitely a must do. Thank you for the write up and the guts to be the first one to try it, without a write up.

Yaris coils seem to be a good idea since they have the same dwell as stock coils

Great thread.

Picked up the ignition plugs from Ballenger Motorsports.

Anybody use the "OEM Equivalent" Yaris coils that seem to be all over the place for $20 a coil? I'm leaning towards new Denso coils, but if anybody has tried these OEM equivalent ones and found they work as well, post up.

I’m not really a fan of used electronics, so going to my local salvage yard isn’t really something I care to do.

Same here, I hate used stuff, even though I still get used non electric stuff .

Which plug did you get from Ballenger?

Anyone using the 465įF high temperature silicone coated fiberglass sleeves and special military grade wires?

I'm using MS22759 wire for my entire engine harness. I'll either us Raychem DR-25 shrink sleeve or nomex braided sleeve over corrugated tube. I want something that has a solid shape that I could feed wires through in the future. Adhesive lined heat shrink to seal everything up.

Did mine last week using the yaris coils & yaris pig tails. Working like a charm and really pleased with the results. Used a good quality wires and high temp rated shrink tubes i use in my line of work.

Also, they fit under the oem cover :d just need to fabricate an aluminum plate to make it look much nicer than it is already.

Excellent job. I assume the spark plug cover won't fit over those since they are a bit higher than the stock ones right? Looks very nice though glad to hear they make the car feel better too!

Question for those who have made these, whats the best way to cut through the aluminum plate? I've done a decent amount of woodworking but very little metalwork heh. Are you all just using a holesaw or is there something that works better when its cutting through aluminum/steel?

This is a pretty awesome thread. Do the COP's reach deep enough on a IX to fit perfectly? I am probably going to fab up my own set here pretty soon. I'll be able to check it out when I get home from work so the darn pictures load. Great information! Gotta love how Honda uses such strong coils lol
