So, after sucessfully installing a HEI module with the external coil, I decided I would try to get the KF distributor to work on a KL, simply to get it to look more like the OEM setup instead of having the coil tower sticking out of the distributor cap, and I am also planning on getting a KF ignitor installed later for a cleaner OEM look. I can only confirm this to be working for the 93-94 models of the KL powered cars, but I am pretty sure this will work with the 95-97 aswell! Keep in mind you will have to already have the HEI with external coil installed in order to do this mod! So, what you'll need for this tutorial is: KF distributor with external coil (This has a 4 wire plug instead of a 3+6 like the KL, keep in mind some KF's have internal coil so be sure it's the right one before getting one!) Preferable a new distributor cap and rotor, this is not needed if you get a new distributor or the old one is still good, but if it's used I highly recommend to get a new one. A new 4 wire plug (I got mine from http://www.cycleterminal.com, it's called "Female DL 090-4B" and is listed under "Connectors->DL 090 Series->4 pin DL 090 Female Connector", http://www.cycleterminal.com/dl-090-series.html) Standard tools, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 14mm wrenches (or pipe), Phillips PH2 (or similar) screwdriver, and a small flathead screwdriver. So, we'll start with the hard part, the repinning of the 6 wire plug. Now the repinning is fairly easy, in order to go it you'll have to take the old pins out, or cut the wires and add the new terminals from cycleterminal on (this is selv explainatory so I am not going to show you how to mount them) The KL plug looks like this: And the KF like this: What you have to do is move Pin 1 from the 6 wire plug to Pin 1 on the 4 wire plug, Pin 2-Pin 2, Pin 3-Pin 3, Pin 4-Pin 4 super easy huh? KL Pin 1 -> KF Pin 1 KL Pin 2 -> KF Pin 2 KL Pin 3 -> KF Pin 3 KL Pin 4 -> KF Pin 4 KL Pin 5 -> Cut/Remove (goes to OEM ignitor) KL Pin 6 -> Cut/Remove (goes to OEM ignitor) Once that is done, the new plug should look like this: Now all you need to do now, is install the new distributor, plug in the 4 wire plug, and connect the plug wires (keep in mind the KF has a different numbering on the cap than the KL) Once that is done you are ready to test, asuming you have connected the coil wire. I've cleaned the wires up since this picture, this was just for testing. I am using a old NGK wire to my SS Blaster Coil, it works for now, but I'll swap it out for a Magnecore later. This was it guys, hope you enjoyed my first guide, if I missed or should include something let me know!
Hi everyone, this is my first post here on the forum but I've owned V6 GE 626's for about 4 years now and pretty much know them inside out (at least it feels that way haha). I'm the owner of the Chalk board painted 95 V6. It was inevitable... my O2 sensors are finally on the way out and my fuel economy is quickly going down hill, currently sitting on 9.4L/100km (highway driving) vs early this year getting 7.9L/100km (highway driving). Replacing these expensive little suckers is proving a harder task then first thought. The only local auto parts store (repco, NSW Australia) sells the things for $207 a piece, and for some reason they only think the car should have one when it really has two, one on each bank exhaust. I am however not going to pay $414 combine for two O2 sensors because frankly that is a pathetic rip off (welcome to buying car parts in Aus). RockAuto Parts (online website) has these two 4 wire sensors that look good and are a very decent price ($23.79 USD Each); Front - https://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinfo.php?pk=4554024&cc=1190056 Rear - https://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinfo.php?pk=4553922&cc=1190056 Has anyone ever bought these ^ ? (I'm reluctant to buy due to reviews of RockAuto) What O2 sensors have you bought, where did you get them and were they a good deal?
