HOWTO: FD Igniter with Wolf 3D v4

For some this may be self explanatory, for others here it is...

This is looking at it with the pins on the igniter facing up, looking at the top side of it. Pins from left to right. This matches up with the diagram on page G-16 of the FSM. Make sure you have the connector from the FD harness with the igniter also.

PIN 1 - Trailing Wolf (T1)
PIN 2 - To Trailing Coil (T1)
PIN 3 - Trailing Wolf (T2)
PIN 4 - 12V IN (switched)
PIN 5 - To Trailing Coil (T2)
PIN 6 - Leading Wolf
PIN 7 - To Leading Coil
PIN 8 - Unused (bridged to pin 7 inside the igniter)


from the FSM.

Just to double check, looking at the connector in the diagram is goes A-H, would the PIN1 in your description be PIN A or PIN H?

(just trying to clarify to make my install easier)

! Damn, now your making me unsure of how i wired mine.

Where are you mounting your ignitor? I removed the original trailing ignitor, notched a few places with my dremel and put the FD ignitor right where the FC trailing ignitor was

the bosch gives you the ability to run 4 individual aftermarket coils.

you can run 4 coils with the fd ignitor. Just connect both leading coil inputs to the single channel of the ignitor together

True, the leading both fire at the same exact time. There is also only 1 wolf wire that goes to the stock leading ignitor.

as long as the internal resistance is pretty high on those aftermarket coils (which is kindof defeating the purpose) it would work for a little while, but any type of high current coils is asking a lot of 1 channel in an ignitor, much less, 2 coils on 1 channel. Even the stout fd ignitor would burn up in a short amount of time.

no, the coils should work fine t1/t2 with the plug n play...

the fd ignitoris on the right hand side of the inner pannel. that is for the us on the driver's side. Its a flat heat sunk box with a flat square female socket on the bottom, usually silver but may be black. it gas a resisrtor little box also bolted with the mounting bolts. it bolts using to laterally opposed 6mm bolts...

Is there any way to make this work without having the harness for it? I bought a 13b motor and tranny with the wolf 3d v4 and came with an FD igniter and FC coils, the only thing I didn't get is the actual harness for the igniter. The way the previous guy had it wired was with separate connectors for each pin, I tried doing it that way (using this thread) and I'm only getting spark on the leading coils.
