    Heres something a little different: Coil on plugs. Got tired of breaking spark plug wires after removing them a couple times. Still running wasted spark via the EDIS.

    Last weekend I replaced the crush washer for the oil galley plug, what a pain in the ass. But no more oil leak. However they is now a coolant leak. Wonderful!

    How to Install a 3.0L PRV into your DeLorean

    Jeez Josh. All of the good info posted here about the 3.0L swap, and you take your part numbers and detailed instructions to the other forum.

    I can see it will take more than good looks and good info (albeit, only found after sorting through a lot of crap) to win your loyalty.

    Lol, that was the thread that sparked this idea so i felt the need to document it more thoroughly.

    Anyway stop your pouting, ctrl+v is the great equalizer.


    Coil:
    Motorcraft DG500 / DG513
    Application: Ford 3.0L DOHC Duratec V6 (2000-2005 Taurus)

    Here is a picture of everything disassembled. Remove the boot off the coil and throw it away. Cut the internal spring to the length shown in the picture (about 1/3 of the original length).
    Remove the boot from a set of delorean spark plug wires. I reemed out the "bore" of the boot a little, just enough so the spring could slide through nicely. Cut off the top portion of the boot.

    10632641_912527828760731_1774840854915182332_n.jpg

    Press the boot on the coil and install just as you would a spark plug wire. I will be making a retaining bracket but for not they are extremely sturdy, I highly doubt they would come loose or pop out.

    EDIT: I guess the eagle premier and delorean spark plug wire boots are different. Both should work though. The extra girth the premier boots really does help keep the coils securely in place.
