Re: Custom plug wires

Ron, what is the benefit of going to the Viper coil pack? Is it just to get rid of the coil rail? Is there a performance benefit?

Re: Custom plug wires

Any auto parts store should have what you need to make custom wires.
Where are you mounting the coil?
I am considering going with this:

https://www.ksuspensionfab.com/store...Coil_Mod_.html

I doubt there is much of a performance benefit but being more traditional I would not mind having wires instead of the coil bar.

So with this thinking something around a '03 3.3 liter Grand Caravan or the like stock wires would work.

Cause I am thinking of just buying the bracket and harness and will piece the rest together myself cause I can do cheaper.

Here are the wires for the at the Napa site. If you scroll down you will see the words Buyer's Guide. Tells you all the vehicles that these fit.

https://www.napaonline.com/en/p/BEL700112

So to double check this maybe scope them out at the boneyard.
Then if looks like it works buy new ones.

Re: Custom plug wires

The benefit is to be able to pull a "individual" plug(reading on finding "TDC").

I want "custom made" wires to eliminate the hassle of doing it my self with only one hand. There are no "applications" for this.
The coil will be mounted to the 2 center coil rail bolts.

Re: Custom plug wires

That was supposed to read (reading or finding TDC)

If this works out well I'll also p/u a Screamin Demon coil.

Re: Custom plug wires

Here's mine -- been running it since 2017 -- I choose to build a mount around the overflow bottle

I'm pretty sure the wires are from my 97 parts cherokee

Re: Custom plug wires

Heavyopp ..........???

Ralph77, thanks for the link. I didn't know anyone was making a longer harness. I contacted them and ordered (2) 12" harnesses (they said theirs is about 21" long).

So I was going over that thread cause I am pretty sure I never saw that one before. I purchased the WVE 1P2041.

https://www.rockauto.com/en/parts/wv...connector,2592

My goal, not knowing if it would work, was just to have a little more wire to be able to move the coil bar on my '00 a little more.

Did not work. Jeep was not starting misfiring and backfiring when did. I was all sorts of bad. But it connected no problem. Looking closer at the WVE it appeared that the spades in the male part might not have been long enough to get into the female connector on the wiring harness.

What did you mean when you said "but I will have to remove the "white" rib on the coil connector".

Knew I forgot something. Wish I could edit here. You ordered 2 12" but theirs is 21". They are making one for you? I don't understand.

The JK coil has a extra rib on the connector(see the thread/pics)

Now I get it. I saw the rib you Dremeled off but failing to notice it was white threw me off. Thought you did something to the inside of the connector itself.

I talked to them to. Working at Napa and the local Mopar Dealership being a customer of the store I have an in. So I was thinking of getting a real Mopar coil for that set up and buying the wires from the store. They were nice enough to tell me what year, what I posted above would be good. Did say one wire might be a little to long though.

Re: Custom plug wires

Damn edit. LOL.
Still wondering, for sure, why I could not get that WVE part to work.
