>>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!
