    Default petrol heads, please help me..

    Hi all, i wanna ask, where can i find shops that sell used car parts?
    My cousin asked me to look around for this coil thingy which i don't really know what or looks like, but he told me it is something like this
    He said he's looking for one that is rated for 10.000 rpm..

    Anyone can help me?
    Thanks a lot!

    It is the ignition coil.. He is asking about models that can be used for 10000-12000 rpm.. He said it is the one for drag race..

    Anyone knows? Or maybe how much a used one costs?

    TIA!

    10 - 12 000 RPM is more for motor bikes right ?? like the yamaha R1 or the Suzuki Hayabusa ??

    i thought cars max only at 9000RPM ?

    Better ask your cuz to post in car forum as he is looking for used parts. At least there might be sellers there.

    You should really be posting in a car forum, if its a honda try:

    - ozhonda.com
    - hondatech.com.au
    - www.hondaclub.com
    - www.hondaforums.com

    just to name a few. But it's strange that he needs to rev to 12,000 for a drag race, is he using NOS?
    Enlighten me...

    I don't think it's honda.. no, he said he needs a coil that is rated up to 10k rpm, so i don't think it will be revved to 10k.. he said something like mallory.. I have no idea what he's talking about..

    Then better ask at least the engine type that mod car is using... Everyone trying to help blind here.

    well, there are many reptuable workshops in singapore but 2nd hand ones i'm not so sure.
    it really depends what car he is using for drag.
    i think he might be looking at the ignition coil?
    you must find out what he wants before you can help right?
    after that try garage r, lim tan, merlin etc. too many to name though.

    If its something that Against LTA approved list of parts then I guess no use searching here. Maybe some shops do sells but they wont post it in forums and such. U got to find it urself. But most of them usually modified it in Malaysia.

    Thanks a lot for the help!

    can't get much used parts for sale unless direct from the current owner. easier to source for the coil from states if ur cousin wants to get a mallory coil.
