Brent, I hard wired my two step in, so I basically redid all that wiring...

Meen, thanks man.

SCJ, best of luck, but the seems unnecessary, the wiring will end up being too obtrusive...evey

Hands down, thats the nicest coil relocation setup I have ever seen

Only thing I may wonder about would be rain. I have a feeling that due to the detail work I see in your pics, your car like mine doesn't go in the rain

I think putting them behind tr dash will be alot easier. I don't have AC or heater so that helps, but a simple hole in the firewall behind the manifold allows the PCM wiring to go through without extending those wires, a custom set of plug wires, and an extended wire harness for the coils should be all it will take. Viola, no PCM, or coils in the engine bay.

That looks awesome, with no wires showing it will be the cleanest set up I have seen.

I have to much oil cooler stuff going on down there, but would love to have that same set up.

Great job!

Thanks! Thats what I was going for.

I have the Moroso pan, so I have a pair of 10AN lines running down there,

There is a lot more down there than it seems.


Obviously, I dont know your setup, just for arguments sake, I also have extra **** down there.

What did you paint your block and heads with?

Very clean setup, I like it.

Thank you sir.

I rattle canned it... Like everything else on the car.

Duplicolor 500* Gloss Black, its supposed to be chemical resistant after it's heat cycled...

Its seems split, some people like the orange block, and some people like how it looks now.

I love it. Seems much more "complete" now, than just a bunch of pieces thrown together.

I am using the stock F Body oil pan as the cast ones seem to be the most reliable. It has an Improved Racing Baffle in it. Since I took the motor out the end of 2010, and I had extreme oil temp issues I have purchased a Ron Davis 14 plate oil to water cooler. I have the mounting for it all done, but getting the oil from the motor, to a remote filter, to an accullater then to the cooler and back has oil lines going everywhere. I plan on doing track days and it makes a lot of heat at WOT for so long. I already have the big Ron Davis rad as well. The Be Cool seemd to be challenged with keeping the temps down with 10-15 minute hard runs.

The Canton is not supposed to have very good oil control for cornering.

Anyway, I have yet too find the adaptor I like. I have 3 already and one more on the way. The Kooks 2" headers give me very little room near the filter.

The one new adaptor on the way is the Canton, so I will see if it is better than the Lingenfelter/Hamburger/stock truck oil cooler lines.

Should have it tomorrow.


All that stuff is why I do not think I can pull it off, besides, you can hardly see my coils with my Harrop intake.

Yea, I suppose you have a more intricate oiling system than I do. I will probably add the accusump/oil cooler in the next year. and I can't wait to pick up a Ron Davis Radiator.

And yes, the 2" primaries really take up a lot of room.

They made finding room for the plug wires between the headers and the block quite challenging.

OP, that is fantastic and the wires aren't any longer! My buddy has a 3rd gen Camaro ( HEI ) and is routing all wires under the headers too. Wires will be longer but won't burn on headers and will look much neater.
This is a worthwhile mod that you have brought to a new level, very nice!

Work is a bit slow today, so I figured I would start this thread, ill have to add pictures tonight.



Over the past couple months I have been working on a new coil relocation kit, one that is different than any others I have seen.

Rather than move the coils under the cowl, I decided it would be cool to drop them down by the oil pan,

I made my own bracket, which took a ton of trial and error, but I finally got a set of brackets that fits awesome, and is very rigid.

It mounts on the two lower engine mount bolts as well as one oil pan bolt.

I made my own spark plug wires, with 90* boots on the spark plugs,

It is so sneaky, you can barely see any portion of the system when it is all installed.

I did have to extend my ignition coil wiring, but that was a non-issue because I was already re-wiring my entire harness.


Passenger Side








Drivers Side














Front



My loyal helper







Which brings me to the second part of this thread

(This part may get lost in here, but I am not so full of myself that I feel the need for two threads)


I pulled off all of the loom and untangled all of the wiring back to the PCM...

from there I look at what route would be the best for each wire,

i.e. rather than have the TPS/IAC wiring come over the top with the injector wiring, I ran it along the drivers side oil pan, along with the cam sensor, coolant temp, alternator, MAF, 1357 ignition coil wiring.


Back to work, I will expand and add pictures later.
I love it! I was actually just thinking of doing pretty much the same thing with my coils the other day but hadnt pursued it yet. Good to see that setup works

wow that looks awesome. i am planning on doing something like this. but like LPE 403 asked, is heat an issue and also is plug wire length an issue if I moved mine further from the plugs? thanks
