    Coil pack question?

    I know this is bodywork thread but wasnt sure where else to put it. Basicly i see on gsi - turbo engines the coil pack has cover over it so where can i buy one and would it fit on 1.8 sport?

    presuming you have a mk4 as this is in the mk4 section then the 1.8 engine as used on the mk4 was the small block X18XE1

    the small block 16v engines used in the mk4 feature a plastic engine cover that sits on top of the engine

    the big block engines used in the mk4 range (2.0T & 2.0) & 1.8 (X18XE in mk3) have a plastic cover that sits ontop of the coil pack - no additional engine cover is fitted

    you cant physically chop n change them so to put it bluntly NO u cant fit one onto you 1.8

    What you could do instead though is paint your plastic engine cover to your tastes or if u wanted to be different - u could paint the actual cam cover itself and do away with the plastic ECOTEC engine cover...... however, if u did this youd need to fabricate a custom panel to sit on top of the coil pack.
