    I have heard of people doing that. Personally, I would be concerned about the increased resistance due to the splicing.

    Why not just use ceramic spacers to slightly raise the unit? A small air gap is more then enough to help with temp. I mounted my ignition system and ZEX nitrous system 4" above a transversely mounted exhaust manifold. Only thing between them and the manifold was a thin piece of aluminum and 1/4" ceramic spacers.

    I am not sure of the specifics, but i recall some people having some trouble when the DIS warped. Even if only the centor of the module was raised up, it was not functioning properly.

    I dunno how valid what people say is, but some people in this thread feel that the whole point of the DIS being mounted directly onto a surface is to help conduct heat OUT of the DIS. Apperantly the Convection/Radiation when it isn't mounted directly onto a surface is not enough to keep it in the realm of safe operating temperatures.

    i agree, if it works fine in cars up to and over 100k miles, its fine, just be sure to use heat sink compound, NOT dielectric grease!

    About $1.99 for enough to do about four applications.
