>>Can anyone out there give information about the positive and/or negative
of the Apikol and 034 coil conversion.
I installed the 034 conversion kit on my car about 18 months ago. The
workmanship on the wiring harness is excellent. Unfortunately, I cannot say
the same about the coils the 034 supplied me with which began to fail one by
one over a few months. Replacement coils sourced from either a VW dealer or
local import parts place have held up fine.
034 stopped supplying coils shortly after I bought my kit because of other
people having failures. However, they were unwilling to refund the $100
additional I had paid for the coils, suggesting that perhaps my TAP Stage I
chip was running an extended dwell and overheating the coils. Given that
have I driven well over a year w/o failure of the replacement coils, I think
I can safely say the problem was a bad batch of coils from 034. Guess I
need to give them another call and give them one more chance to set things
P.S. So George, buy the wiring harness from 034, but tell them to refund me
$100 for the bad batch of coils they sold me in September or October 2006!
