    Car was running fine except for breaking up over 30 psi so decided to get an Arc-2 ignition box and COP setup. I'm not sure if I wired these things up correctly or not and not sure what each wire is for. When I purchased it (from a Facebook buddy), I wasn't aware it needed to be wired up. Just thought it'd be plug and play. Dunno if anyone could be of any assistance. Even disconnected the ignition box and hooked it up directly to the stock harness. Still won't fire up. Even reversed the white wires and blue wires at the plug but still no good.

    P.S. Being that the plugs look exactly the same, I accidentally hooked up my ignition box to the crank sensor (Kiggly trigger plate with 6 bolt block) and the stock crank sensor wiring. Not sure if that could've blown anyway.

    How did you wire the coils? I have a wiring diagram here somewhere. It sounds like you didn’t wire them in the proper sequence to me.

    Had to swap the blue and white wires at the cop plug and then connect the cdi back up. That fixed the issue. Thanks!!!

    So today I figured out that the coil on plugs are used from a 1999 intrepid 3.2l v6 engine so if anyone needs this part make sure you get the right part
