[s-cars] Apikol Report

Someone mentioned earlier in the thread about heat. I have the monster air
intake mod which means I have a gap open to air right in front of the engine
block. I measured the air temp driver side of the turbo before and after the
mod and measured a significant difference (about 2 degrees). I wonder if
this would help.
Just out of interest I ordered the Apikol coil kit this week and should be
installing it at the weekend.
What about the spark plugs. Changing the F5DPOR to NGK BKR7EIX. Would that
make a difference?

Yes, I¹m curious, too. Anyone running these??? As far as the stock system
goes, I¹ll be slowly rehabbing my old system to have a back up to the Apikol
kit should I want to swap back. It seems, though that stock coils are
getting a bit tougher to find. At least that¹s what I¹m hearing. Haven¹t
really started looking hard myself.
Yes, I¹ll keep a 1.8 coil in the trunk. No worries about that.
