    coilpack conectors?

    Hey guys, bit on a newbie question, is the coilpack the black plastic rail with the 4 rubber tubes that you put ontop of the spark plugs?

    if so does anyone know if you can buy replacement rubbers, i took my car for a drive yesterday and when i hit full boost, the car just chugged slowly with a lot of real fast backfiring, i thought it might be a spark plug because of the backfiring and because i changed em last week, but when i took the "coilpack" out to check the plugs i noticed that the end of one of the rubbers that goes on top of the spark plug had split at the end.

    Im assuming this is whats causing the issue (hoping) and im guessing it maybe happened because i tightened it down to hard when i replaced it after changing plugs.

    If anyone has any clues would be a great help, i'd like to know if its possible to buy the rubber replacements or whether i have to buy a whole new assembly, if anyone know if i can get a rubber and from where would be much appreciated, cheers chaps!

    if you need a new coil pack then pm me after you shop around. LMF charge 79 quid plus around 8.50 to post, just shy of 90 all in. I have one boxed genuine bosch item. If interested pm me and i will explain how i came by it. i had one and put it on my engine and solved my misfire, but the other one i have is brand new, never fitted and still boxed

    Anyway pm me if you want to know any details

    im using cossie plugs i changed to last week, theyre supposed to be tidy, been working fine, just that rubber split, im guessing thats from me tightening the coilpack down too tight? and yea il have to look about see if i can find a rubber somewhere otherwise shop about till i can find one for 25 quid, cant afford to spend any more really and i only need 1 little piece or rubber lol grr thanks both tho guys

    and btw gsi-10 i know its probably too little but if you'd take about 25 il take that spare off your hands fella

    Are the plugs gapped properly?? You cant over tighten the coil pack.
