After years looking I found the box where I had these two little bastards in. One is 44 and the other is 45. I wish I had an idea of how long I have had them.
And recently I got a 0 227 400 196 EZK (N/A, not chip ready). I also had a 0 227 400 148 which I manager to kill (?) when trying to install the daughterboad (think https://forums.turbobricks.com/showthread.php?t=157730).

But, right now the 196 works. And I am feeling a bit brave, but I do not know if this has the reverse pinout issue.

Duder, did you ever make the bracket? If you did, you may also want to sell a set of spark plug wires with it.

I have the design for the Bosch 2x2 coil bracket, for mounting it where a 240 distributor would be, but have only produced the one prototype for my car. Kind of got pulled away from that by many other things in life.

If there's still demand I could make a run of them!

Spark plug wires are same as 240 except with the smaller style posts as found on the 740/940 on the distributor (coil) side. I haven't looked at producing those. They are easy enough to make yourself in a few minutes if you have the parts though.

Just got near everything wired in on my 740 -- only question is where/how do you mount the 2x2 221 503 407 Bosch coil?

I am in the process of relocating my Bosch 2x2 coil pack and the wires that I use will be too short. Any recommendations on a wire DIY kit or even a stock wiring option?

I essentially need 740 distributor wire connectors with 240 ignition wire length.

For my personal car, I bought a new set of 240 Kingsborne plug wires, then manually swapped out the ends on the coil side, using a set of 940 wires as donors. It's not hard to do, you can manually un-crimp and re-crimp them and everything works perfectly if you're careful about it.

I have made my wasted spark system with both 407 coil and J702T module, works fine and runs smoothly. Both coil and module are on the mounting plate and set above the head cover using 50mm extension studs, like some peoples do.

So I have measured the temperature of mounting plate just because the curiosity. The temperature of plate reached 60C degree, but not 70C. Considering the performance of ignition module, the plate temp may need to be kept lower. I’ll try to make the extension studs a little longer

Hi, everyone

first of all a happy new year to everyone

i installed the wasted spark on my volvo, but the engine now only runs on the 2-3 cylinder.
All connections are good I checked everything.

Does anyone have any idea what this may be?
Maybe the circuit board from buchka is defective?

Thanks for the help
