For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

Hello,

         Using the ford hydro boost and the relocating the coils brought me to the stacking option with the coils. The stacking kit has enough parts for both sides. I would like some feed back on what everyone else has done and been successful with. Have you relocated and used a make your own wire kit for one side and leaving the passenger coils on the passenger head.  Relocated and make your own kit for both sides and what spark plug set did you use. 



Thanks,
Sam

Here is how I done mine, I built my own bracket and used some generic Accel plug leads, I changed the ends to MSD LS series coil connectors. I also had to extend two coil connectors, I modified the Accel plug leads because I couldn't find long enough leads.

I used truck coils and Accel leads. Left side rearmost coil bolted to fuel rail.

Moved up higher on the coil mounting bracket. Very close fit with the Ford Hydroboost, but no problems so far.

I stacked coil #5 and 7 on top of coil #1 and 3, which left plenty of room for my DMC setup. I bought plastic spacers off of McMaster car for stacking.

Were you able to use stock wires on the rear coils?

I just ordered coil relocation brackets and the longer truck spark plug wires from Summit Racing as I plan on welding on -10 AN to my valve covers for a specific valve cover vent/catch can arrangement.

Leaving the coils in the stock locations would put them in the way of the bungs/lines. The new brackets mount the coils up near the injectors, which should also clear my Mustang hydroboost...

pormgb, not the stock length wires; you will need two about 1.5-2" longer to reach the plugs.
