    Nice surprise discovery which is motivating my move to this COP kit - this is the state of 4, 5, 6 coil ends at the pack. If only this could have been discovered in the winter?! So while I hope to get in line for one of these fabulous kits (and I missed a golden chance already stupidly), does anyone happen to have these straight ends from a 456/M? I’d love to be able to drive asap with the Summer upon us. I’ll buy or even “rent” and return them once I can get the COP. (Like me, I know many like to keep all original parts…). They twist off the cable - I have all new cables thanks to this forum already as you can see mine had beheadsd themselves, Image Unavailable, Please Login Image Unavailable, Please Login already.

    Just to give more positive feedback on John's COP set up I drove ~700 miles over the last 3 days in unusually varying weather for the season, ranging from warm under the sun to cold in pouring rain and the engine ran like Swiss clockwork with zero ignition issue.

    Man, I have my ignition torn apart right now (again) during my most recent major “plus” underway. I asked them last week about integrating this kit.

    Ed, give Kingsborne Wire Werks a try. They should have those ends in stock and hopefully you can get your existing setup patched up until we can get you a COP kit.

    Great to hear Thomas, it always warms my heart to see/hear good comments about our stuff.

    Again, great to hear Omar. I'm glad you got the kit installed & the car is running well. Did you DIY or have it installed by your tech? Hope the installation instructions were clear.

    Jeff, it's a very simple, straight forward installation. No more difficult than changing the plugs and after you're done, you'll have a worry free, reliable ignition system for the next decade or two :). I think FatBillyBob's setup is approaching 15 years at this point. His was the #3 setup that we built.

    My tech installed it in the middle of a very extensive major service. Very happy. My factory plugs were 'ok' but minor tears and cracks were apparent.

    Minor update

    More mixed driving / cold + hot starts > perfect. I have zero complaints and strongly recommend it if nothing else so you can keep the fragile OEM setup safe/secure while you run an improved setup.

    This is a definite must for any one, particularly those who actually is are driving a 550/456/456m.
