    Not a full episode, engine's not in yet, but a quick video fitting some new coils to the Busso

    Hey LPH, just realised your profile pic is running those coils! Hopefully they worked out OK?

    I hate contributing to technical stuff 'cause usually I know less than mince but I'm pretty confident Craig fitted the Audi R8 coils to my set-up and I believe they work fabulously.

    Hi Colin

    Yep, mine uses those coils. They seem to work great!

    I think Neil Turbonutter was the first on here to fit the Audi coils to the Alfa V6 as far back in 2014. STR Strat followed suit on his first build shortly afterwards.
    In both cases they used machined sleeves pressed into the rocker covers to help prevent water ingress down the plug wells

    Thanks guys, yea that all in one cover/mounting plate is a very slick solution!, that might have to wait until i get my CNC mill operational. Thanks for the heads up re sealing around the stalk, I thought there was already a decent fit there, but on more careful inspection there is indeed a gap, I'll make up some sleeves as suggested to keep the H2O out, cheers

    Excellent progress again but did I see the front lower balljoint sitting on top of the transverse arm? I think it's supposed to be bolted in from underneath so that if anything breaks free the ring in the transverse arm can capture some of the slack before it all goes horribly wrong?
