FWIW & Archival purposes, anyone running a Stinger 4424 or 8860 standalone with external igniters, the trigger wires are as follows:
From ECU
Pink Cyl 1 trigger
Orange Red stripe Cyl 3 trigger
Yellow Red stripe Cyl 2 trigger
Grey Black stripe Cyl 4 trigger

Yellow wire to old coil pack connectors is common 12+.

I found an interesting method of soldering the wires to the plugs. I took .250" 16-14 gauge quick disconnects, and you can slide the bottom end over each pin, and they literally click in. The pin somewhat slids into the crease where you would normally crimp. With all 3 in place its a very snug fit. Im not to handy with the soldering gun yet so I cut off a tiny bit of solder, and it fits perfectly down the quick disconnect where you would normally crimp. So with the solder in place, I click the quick disconnect in place, and then let the solder melt and fall onto the pin. Gave it a tug to make sure the connection was good. With all 3 in place it came out looking like this.



To me this seems like a good idea, but then again the first time I touched a soldering gun was to do this swap so im still pretty new at it. What do you guys think? Some heatshrink and some epoxy and it should be good? Im hoping to get to the conversion this weekend.

make sure non of the pins arent in contact with each other inside the new coilpacks, if they are touching it can cause the short to blow fuses, something is wrong with the wiring, check it all again, even the basics.

Get used ones. The new style hardly ever fail in comparison so going used is usually a safe bet.

Is there a model of the EJ20 that has a central coil pack rather than a coil on plug design? Reason I'm asking is because I have a set of nology plug wires that seem to be made for one and it's for an EJ20G.

Yeah the EJ20K and the GC8 EJ205/7 both used central, manifold-mounted coil packs.

I'm sure it could be POSSIBLE, but why would you want to?

Almost two years later, one of the all time greatest hacks on a 20G.

I don't think it will matter. Get what you can find cheap.
