    Default 3SGTE coil on plug conversion

    has anyone got any experiences with coil-on-plug conversions for 3SGTE???
    I've done plenty of external multi-coil conversions, but I'm looking at an alternative for my new race engine. The Caldina ones I've seen may not fit as the cam cover is totally different to Gen2/Gen 3 turbo covers I'm familiar with.
    any help/leads appreciated. thanks

    the RX ones are external coils, not coil-on-plug. I assume the Holden ones you refer to are LS1 coils, which I have used, but they are also external coils, they just happen to get mounted on the cam covers in most applications

    Not much help,

    But have you had a look at 1NZ / 1ZZ?

    1MZ also springs to mind...

    Cheers

    What about motorbike ones? R6/R1 yamaha has 4. They may or may not seal in the cam cover (they are designed to but of course the dimensions vary).
    Ebay is your friend.

    Pretty sure 2AZ coils are the same as 1/2NZ ones.
