    russhowe replied to a thread Part throttle hesitation in Engine
    I'm positive I felt the coils click into place as I bolted them down. Mind you I've never liked this type of ignition system at all. I prefer a coil pack with an HT Lead to all the plugs The plugs came from Viamoto, and truth be told I never checked the gap. I just popped them in. I checked for obvious damage ofcourse but they looked good It wouldn't surprise me if I have a vacuum leak, my intention is to replace every single line. Coming from a VAG background, the 1.8i turbo engine 1st...

    As the title says, when I'm cruising along on part throttle I get an intermittent, sporadic hesitation. The only engine bay work I've done recently is change the spark plugs (Front bank only as I ran out of time and daylight to do the rear) So naturally the coil packs have been disturbed along with other necessary wiring. It feels electrical but I could be wrong Sent from my SM-G981B using Tapatalk

    Hi folks. I did a couple of searches for "locks" and "keys" but I couldn't get anything concrete I've got 2x PFL's about 3 weeks apart in terms of build date. The parts car has 2x keys where as my drivable car has only one key. What issues will I be faced with if I want to swap the keys and locks over from the parts car to the driver?
