Nope - I've got a spare set of magnacore ones - they ain't cheap

Been chasing a stutter/misfire issue on my V8 - I have a suspicion it is cats/exhuast but thought I should check out ignition side first.

Replaced plugs - no difference

I removed the plenum (great fun) and I looked at HT leads/coils - nothing visibly obvious (although I will test the coils as far as I am able later).

ordered HT lead set - like an earlier post I couldn't find anything other than the Magnecor set - on their way from S J Sportscars as I write this.

I also looked at coils (BTW on the DeRoure website they are listed at £243.86 each eek!)

The existing ones are bosch  0 221 503 001 and I tried to order from onlinecarparts.co.uk (at £32.95 each)  but they just told me they are waiting on stock - could they send alternatives.  At first I though not but looking at the site they are listing the Delphi as a direct replacement so I have ordered them at £30.95 each

The coils are listed for the following cars

OPEL ASTRA F Estate (51_, 52_) 2.0 i 16V   03.1993 - 01.1998
OPEL ASTRA F Hatchback (53_, 54_, 58_, 59_) 2.0 GSI 16V   09.1991 - 01.1998
OPEL CALIBRA A (85_) 2.0 i 16V   06.1990 - 02.1994
OPEL CALIBRA A (85_) 2.0 i 16V 4x4   06.1990 - 02.1994
OPEL FRONTERA A (5_MWL4) 2.2 i (54MWL4)   03.1995 - 10.1998
OPEL FRONTERA A Sport (5_SUD2) 2.0 i (52SUD2, 55SUD2)   03.1992 - 10.1998
OPEL OMEGA B (25_, 26_, 27_) 2.0   03.1994 - 09.1999
OPEL OMEGA B (25_, 26_, 27_) 2.0   03.1994 - 12.2000
OPEL OMEGA B Estate (21_, 22_, 23_) 2.0   03.1994 - 09.1999
OPEL VECTRA A Hatchback (88_, 89_) 2.0 i 16V CAT   02.1990 - 11.1995
OPEL VECTRA B (36_) 2.0 i   10.1995 - 04.2002
OPEL VECTRA B Estate (31_) 2.0 i   11.1996 - 02.2002
OPEL VECTRA B Hatchback (38_) 2.0 i   10.1995 - 02.2002

Hopefully they will be suitable - I will soon (I hope) find out.

While I remember - Spark Plug Leads

I've seen previous comments about finding/making alternatives - surely it must be possible - £150 ish for a set of leeds seems way too much.

I just checked and when I replaced (only 6 of course) the plug leads/coil packs on my last car - Porsche 996 it only cost £135 and they are actualy 6 individual coils.

maybe just volume production/sales of course!!

Hi - the coils I got worked fine.  Fitted them along witha set of new (Magnacor) HT leads.

 

Didn't fix my stutter/holding back issue above 3,500 RPM though and I have found one of the catalytic convertors to be broken up which I think is restricting the exhaust (RH bank).  

In the middle of trying to fix that now (I will post details / seek advice on another part of the forum)

That really won't help if one is broken up.

take it off and smash it out. Cheap and easy to try - see if that gets rid of the Miss fire.

Thanks - that is the plan - I have posted a separate post to cover it,

Does anyone have a cross reference for the oil cap on an Esprit V8? The ratcheting portion on mine broke trying to get it off one afternoon after a drive.
