pi swap ignition

when doing a pi head swap is there a way you can add coil over plug ignition and what all do you need.

Thanks Luke!

There is no way to have true COP ignition but you can wire up the COPs to the coil pack connections and use it that way. Do a search and more information will come up. It has been done before.

from what I've read its also a purly cosmetic mod, theres no real benefit, plug wires are cheaper and put out more spark

my sources were from here, IIRC there were people saying that with power adders there wasn't enough spark from the swap, on an na engine it didn't matter

I don't see any advantage to going COP. I have seen people on other boards with stock COP engines having problems and replacing their COPs. They are not cheap. You just don't hear of people having problems with coil packs, just replacing the wires. JMHO
