If anyone is thinking about doing the coil on plug setup, this would be the place and time to buy them. 250.00 is a great deal. Just in parts now, I have over 200.00 and I still haven't made my plate. The only thing I don't get is why one of the setups is 250.00 and the other is 500.00. Does anyone have a clear answer for this?

I forgot to say, Tym Switzer is selling them so you know you get a quality setup!

I'd say he's testing the market. Better get one of the $249 while they last!

That is for sure, dirt cheap. Like I said I am making my own and I will have that much in parts alone.

I think I can mass produce these, for around $200/each, including coils, plate, plugs, and quality cardboard packaging. Mine are made of 1/4" alum. also.

The connectors them selves are around 5.00 but the splice wires are another 3 or 4.00 each.

I find out today if the "new" ones will work (~$5ea). If I make my own, They will of course be new as well.

Can you tell what kind of coils Tym is using 2.7 or 3.5?

I think the only difference is that a 2.7 uses a spring, and a 3.5 uses a rod. Also,, my 2.7's have the two mounting holes oposite each other, not one on one side, and the other on the end. Other than that, they look identical. I don't imagine there is much difference in performance for one over the other. Maybe someone else who knows can chime in. Also, I've read that the springs can be removed and replaced with a copper or aluminum rod, which would make it the same thing.

I really would like to know why there are 2 different prices for apparently the same thing as well?!? AEM is coming out with the CDI and individual coils as well. You still need to use wires and plugs but other than that, it still seems to be a nice set up.

Called him to verify.
The price is $249.00 He doesn't know why the $499 item is still up there. That was the old price. He don't want to say which coils he use 2.7 or 3.5
He's affraid people will copy it.

Good question, as Mitsu has many cop applications now. I'm going to look into that.

definitiely a cool idea and when I get my galant I may get those, just for ease of install and cleanliness, but looking at the pic on ebay, the aluminum was cut horribly. If you look closer on the right side, it's all jagged and none of the holes are even drilled straight...pretty half ass to me.

I'll look somewhere else for a COP

it's probably worth it if you have the msd ignition or aem system, but other than that, I don't see how it can be better...

My buddy made his for dirt cheap a lot less than 250...pretty sure it was about 75 all together...he used coil packs out of a chrysler 300m. It looked cool and worked with his msd ignition, but he said he couldn't notcie any difference just from driving it daily, plus his rubbed up against his hood...

If you are dumping in alot of fuel and spraying nitrous you don't want your spark to blow out. So I would have to say yes, it is worth it!! Read in the how to article on curtis's setup. He said it was worth every bit of it.

You could build one for around $50, if you wanted to use used parts, and cut your own plate with a saw or something. I get to cut them on a laser, so mine are pretty.

I know it's a foreign idea for most of us here, but you might want to try taking the car off jackstands.

If I could get a list of Mitsu part numbers I bet I could get the whole setup cheaper then $200.
25% of list prices helps
The 99-03 Diamante's have 3.5Lmotors do they use coil on Plug? I'll have to look at my sister's ride and check.
