EW10J4S VAG 2.0TFSI coil packs?

Recommended Posts

Gaz7612

Hi all,

 

I'm looking to run coil on plug coil packs on my EW10J4S engine conversion (OMEX 710 ecu)

 

Would I be able to run VAG 2.0 TFSI coil packs on this engine with correct wiring loom?

 

I'm also looking for recomendations for fuel injectors and fuel rail to suit the EW10J4S engine with a Rotrex C30-94 mounted to the side of it!!

 

Thanks again everyone for the help

The critical piece of information that you need is the architecture of the coilpack. In other words, are these coils TTL or just 3 wire ‘dumb’ coils. The ECU will need to know!

It was just an idea I was thinking about. I've also got a set of gti6 coil packs but they don't fit without modifications.

 

I think I'll either stay with the standard EW10J4S coil pack or look at fitting something like a Ford one with HT leads.

Ford Edis2 plus bespoke leads work well and are cheap. Advantage of individual coils is sequential plug firing , so is worth the effort.. I have a spare set of S16 coils but, like the Gti6, probably will not fit without modification.

Personally unless there is a very good reason not to, why would you not retain the standard coil pack that fits perfectly on the head?

Toyota Yaris coils have become very popular, as they’re reliable.

With boost you need a strong spark.

 

Nice write up: https://www.50ignite.com/blog/technical-blog/coils-aint-coils/

Ah get out of the 70's, we are not talking about ancient wet single coils that could not light a fart, modern coilpacks are perfectly well up to the job, I've used wasted spark coilpacks on a 250bhp 1300 Mini turbo, my 204bhp 1600 205 turbo, and Pauls 252bhp 1900 205 turbo.

I ran 225bhp with wasted spark on my tct as well; sure it works, but doesn't rule out that it cannot be better than that.....

Oh well, that’s the end of my Yaris coils. I’ll stick with my M&W cdi and coils in any case.
