No plug wires.

To the OP: The first thing you're going to have to find is boots long enough to go through to the spark plugs. I'm not sure if Dtec boots will fit. Secondly, you're going to have to figure out how to hold the coils in place. The wiring is going to depend on which style of coil you have. I really don't think you can do it without some sort of spark controller. Your current coil doesn't have separate wires for each cylinder going to it- so how are you going to get that to work with the COP coils?

Is that it? No wires? And Jay Racing makes this setup for the Zetec so it can be done, but I don't know about the wiring. I believe Jim (roushturboedzx3) has it.

Just a comment: Jay Racing makes a conversion kit. I think I've seen a couple of engine shots in the FF gallery with some guys here using them. If you check out their web site jayracing.com, you can see the parts they use for the conversion and how involved it is -- no wiring diagrams though.

Edit: Oops, I see disciplerocks beat me to it.

yep not much to the mod just coils connectors and wiring
here is the jay racing diagram for the zetec so i know what wires to use on the zetec but i'm not sure what terminal in the coils to use for what wires...if i had the duratec wiring diagram i would be able to figure it out
does it even matter what terminal is used ???
i'm not real sure how the coil works...if it would get screwed up if i didnt have the proper a terminal and b terminal as per diagram
