Billet Coil Mounts and billet coil covers,new from CFD

Hi all, These are billet coil mounts I designed for my car. They are much cleaner looking than the stock stamped steel units. Makes for an easy swap and cleans up the top of the valve covers, allowing for more air flow and makes the valve covers visable allowing them to be painted, powdercoated etc..

They work with all the stock wiring

These will be offered as a kit with all necessary hardware for a simple, quick installation.

The photos below, are of the prototypes in my car, it is clear how much cleaner they are, combine this with the heater hose re-location and the engine area starts to clean up nicely.

Here is a quick phone shot with the valve covers side by side. Hopefully by days end I will have a picture of mine with valve covers powdercoated later today.

Those look good. Now we need a billet plenum cover to match.

Finally had a chance ti finish up a few sets of coil mounts. These will come unfinished for those wanting to paint. Other finish options may be available on request. Feature billet aluminum with stainless steel hardware. Simply unbolt the existing coil mounts and swap the coils with these brackets, they really clean up this area of the motor without purchasing new valve covers.

If anyone wants to try these I will be offering a few sets at a special introductory price. PM for details.

Hi Kevin, whereas I have not written any instructions this will do for now, not that you will need them but will be usefull for others as well.

Revove stock coils and mounts.
Install coils on new brackets with provided button head allens and one spacer between coil and mount.
Revove the stock clip that holds the electrical connector and install on the new brackets
Install mounts on valve covers with provided socket head cap screws


You can now move the wiring to under the mount as in pics.
On the passenger side you can also move the harness that runs along the top of the coils towhere the heat shield is. You will see in the pics a group of ground wires bolted to the head. Remove this and you can lift the harness over the dipstick tube then reinstall.

Any questions feel free to call or ask.

One other thing I found, not all the coil wires are the same length, if any fit tight swap with one a little longer.

Finally installed my new victory-red billet mounts on the driver side. They went on easily and look great (much cleaner than the OEM bracket). I'm holding off on the passenger side while I try to decide whether or not to pull the valve covers and paint them black.

I can't really say I'm surprised at the quality and fitment. All of George's products are outstanding.

Hi Kevin, Thanks for the kind words. Be sure to post up some pics when you finish it up.

Hi all. I had a chance to machine a few more sets of coil mounts. They are ready to finish in your choice of color/finish options. Shipping is about two days from time of order.

Hi all. I've been making some of my other parts out of real carbon fiber plate. I am currently working on a set of coil mounts in Carbon Fiber. These are not wrapped or dipped but solid carbon fiber plate. I will post pics when they are done, most likely sometime mid week.

Hi all.

I've been working on a set of two piece coil mounts. These are the same as the 1 piece design without the center section to hold the stock harness in place. You can clean up the wiring with no cutting or wiring changes other than re-routing. I am also working on a bracket/cover to hide and further secure the wiring. I will be machining a few sets this week. Here are a few shots of the drivers side installed.
