Sean I would prefer if you wait until I get them in hand and tested. I have been getting them shipped out mostly on the day the paypal comes in so you'll get one pretty quick once payment is made.

Thanks

The removal tool works great! However, be very careful with the rear coil packs, not to break the tabs. Looks like my rear coil tab was damaged during the last change by the dealer and now have to find a place that can extract the coil.

Any ideas for extracting a broken rear coil?? Passenger side has very, very limited space to work with unless you take off the plenum.

I had no trouble pulling them off with my fingers, just rock them back and forth while gently pulling upwards. It will come off; a tool wasn't necessary for any of the coil removal and yes, those tabs where the tool would sit looks like fragile plastic, especially after many heat cycles.

Thanks! Will give that a try! Did you change the plugs on a warm engine or cold engine? It has been in the 40s here.

I let the car sit overnight so pretty cold. Probably get a more accurate torque reading on a cool head.

Coil Puller revision 2 in stock!

Alright everybody the new pulling tools arrived this evening and everything looks good.

These ones are a slightly different design and black anodized. The price though will be the same $35 shipped.

The people that have already sent payment expect them to be shipped out tommorow. There are approximately seventeen people who have shown interest in this batch. I will try to send a private message to everybody that showed interest letting them know they are available.

I ordered 50 total and am not sure the demand will be there to justify another 50. We shall see so these will go on a first come first serve basis and I will try to keep the forum updated with how many I have left so nobody sends a premature paypal.

Please send paypal to:

petermarkmiddleton@gmail.com

Thanks everybody!

TxStig
