TR upgrade photos? will it fix this?

I did a search but couldn't find any. I want to try the upgrade, and would like to have a good look at someone elses 1st. I am courious about how the coil is mounted.

My cap gets water in it every time I go to fast over a water crossing. Will this upgrade fix that?

For the coil you'll have to fab something yourself. There is a post that has pics of several different ways to mount them. Probably about 4 months old. Some guys mount it in the same place on the block. I mounted mine on the fender b/c of the materials I had to work with.
As for the cap and rotor, I doubt it will cure your water problem. Unless the cap and rotor you have now are very worn. You could always seal them with some silicone to keep the water out.
I'll try and find the pics and post the link.

Re: TR upgrade photos? will it fix this?

Hi,

I did the upgrade myself last summer and did another one today on my mate's Jeep. You will have fab up a mounting bracket for it yourself, but this is very easy. I used aluminum I profile (2 pieces, one on either side) just a question of cutting two pieces the lenght of the coil, drill four holes in the top part, mount the coil to the I profiles, drill another four holes in the bottom part of the I profile and screw the sucker to your inner fender. Nothing to it. Heck, you could even use four long screws through the coil, some spacer sleeves underneath and through the inner fender. Secure with some nuts and you are done.

I can take some pictures tomorrow if you wish (it is midnight at the moment over here in the U.K.)

As for water ingress... The TFI cap is no better than any other cap. You can use some sealant to keep the water out though.

Here are a couple of posts that have pics and info on brackets. I also kind of remember Leve talking about an electrical box as a bracket. But he'll have to elaborate on that one.

You can get an aftermarket MSD coil that will fit in the stock canister coil bracket. I got mine from Summit Racing.. MSD Blaster 2.
