    After swapping out all 4 of the new coils for the stock ones, there is a noticeable difference in performance but no stumble anymore. Further diagnosis is required (trying each coil individually until I find out which one is defective) before I can contact the seller and let them know about the problem. I could message them now, but I want to see how many are bad first

    Messaged the seller of the high-voltage coils about the defective one, they responded with a tracking number for the replacement coil with no questions asked.

    Next task on the list is finding and fixing the leak in the ac system and getting it filled before Power Tour (June 6). Oh, and I have to patch a hole in the cowl from clearancing for the buick wiper motor.

    EDIT: Just ordered a pair of (used) aftermarket headlights and plan to put a tube through the passenger high beam for maximum cold air intakeness

    Sounds like a neat idea - reminiscent of the old-school way to do it (or the Challenger Scat Pack/Hellcat/Demon way), but it also sounds like asking for trouble in regards to sealing it to the lens.

    @MP81 I've got a roll of butyl stuff that i've used to seal headlights before. I plan to cut the hole in the lens the same as the inner diameter of the tube and use the end of the tube against the lens to seal that part, then epoxy the rear part of the housing to the tube.

    It may actually be beneficial to cut the hole smaller, then heat it up and form it inwards so you have sealing on two surfaces rather than one - it would also make the sealing butyl less apparent, and would be a cleaner air entry into the lens.

    @MP81 Not sure how well the lens will react to heat and it would reduce the already small tube diameter as I PLAN to use a tube that fits inside the light ring

    Headlights arrived today, high-beam reflector is larger than I thought. Should be able to put the tube through the inside of the led halo. Need to do some actual measuring and find the set of bigger hole saws at work before I can do anything else.

    On the subject of the high-voltage coils, the seller sent me not just a single replacement coil, but an entire set! Don't even have to send the other ones back.

    That will look cool as **** with the halo around the intake tube. Are you using clear plastic for the tube? The halo refracting through that would look awesome.

    Modification of the headlight has begun

    20190602_203050_1559522096179.jpg

    I do plan to use a clear tube

    EDIT: Hooked the leds on the headlight up to power just to see what they look like, running lights look ok but the halos are the old illuminated only at the ends of the hoop type and they're kinda craptastic looking.
