Indeed they are! The fitment and build is actually really nice, I bought them temporarily but Ill probably run them for a bit. They are very inexpensive

OH man that looks phenomenal! So clean!! Blacking out that chrome strip around the waist of the car makes such a difference. Keep it up, can't wait to see her on the road!

Thank you thank you! I actually haven't put the chrome strip on the moldings or bumper yet. I do like how it looks likeout chrome. I was considering covering all the chrome trim with a nice matte silver, kinda how s-line Audi's have

I swear every time I talk to a new person they recommend a different setup for wiring. Last night I had three people explain to me why they think Microsquirt is the way to go, so I reached out to diyautotune for some pricing and parts only comes out to right around what the iWire merge would cost. I bought some connectors and wire so I could begin following the process explained here:

viewtopic.php?f=5&t=45769

I made a little harness to go between the ECU and each coil:

and here is a photo of my car, looking the same, from a different angle:

Made these so I can hook up the COP set up, in a clean fashion. Still looking for some COP pigtails so I don't have to wire directly to the coil.

Converted my alternator wiring from three wire to two, to match the car. Again I tried to make it clean and hidden:

I also moved the fusebox from the factory location to just behind the left headlight. I did not take a picture of that.

if you cant find pigtails to match the connectors on the coil side, why dont you just change both sides to match each other?

well then thats even easier. just get a weather proof or molex connector with two or three pin locations and just make your own connections.

i think im picking up what youre putting down. you have the oem plug on the coil side and you dont have the other connector on the harness side. i mean changing both sides to match eahcother would work awesome, but the downside being that everytime you changed you coils, youd have to swap on a new connector.

Nah, the other way around. The coils have nothing plugged into them and the harness I have (ej20k) utilized wasted spark setup. :(
