This is a discussion on Coil Pack Relocate within the General Help forums, part of the LSx Technical Help Section category; has anyone ever relocated their coil packs to another location off the valve covers? I know I can hide them ...

    Coil Pack Relocate

    has anyone ever relocated their coil packs to another location off the valve covers?

    I know I can hide them with fuel rail covers but I still think they take away from the engine.

    I don't think you can relocate them. Because you need the wires plugged into the packs, you would need to get either get an extension (if there is something like that) or maybe a different spark plug wire that is longer. Kinda depends on how far you are looking at relocating them.

    Plug Wires wouldn't be a problem because you can get them in custom sizes. I figure an extension for the wire harness was a must.

    I see Thunder Racing has a kit that mounts under the cowling. I'm not liking it. IMHO not a good spot to mount. Makes it more difficult to get to and would interfere with FRCs.


    But it doesn't mean I can make my own. At least it gives me a couple of ideas.

    I have an idea for you. You could get a bracket for the battery and fuse box and mount them on that around them. Another Idea if you could get the room to do this would to some how mount them under the airbox assembly or what about on the firewall of each side of the engine.

    I thought of those areas. Maybe move the battery to the spare tire location and then use that space for the coil packs.

    That sounds like a good idea to me. If you do it post pics, I might want to do this too.

    They make a kit to relocate the coil packs under the cowl. Not sure of the brand or details though.

    what do you think of relocate the battery and place them there?

    Would increasing the distance cause a misfire?

    Kind of a long run to the driver side from there.

    Ok, I'm going out on a limb here but... I've heard of kits to relocate them to the framerails(not my word).

    I have an idea that should work, you could relocate them to inside the front fenders. The passenger side would get routed under the battery. I haven't figured out how the other side gets routed but I think if you go down from where they are normally are there is a space where they should fit through to the fender. I believe this should work. The one downside would be that you would have to remove your fender when you need to replace the coils, but those don't fail that often and definately not all of them. Wonder if an access panel could be fabricated to give easier access.

    Are you talking about where the air pump is?

    It would work for guys like me that have removed egr and the air pump systems. But again it would be more of an inconvenience to change the coils. Another thing about that spot would be exposure to water when it rains.

    Might be talking about the space above the plastic fender liners. I relocated all my wiring on the passenger side into this cavity. Not sure if there would be enough depth for coils though.
