Hi.
Thought I'd make this a sticky as it may help people converting to wasted spark and/or DTA (E48EXP)

Firstly, the wasted spark coil doesn't clear the speed sensor on the gearbox of early Ti's.
I had to elongate the lower coil bracket mounting hole by 4mm, to allow the bracket to swing closer to the engine.
Then, I had to take the coil off the bracket, and redrill 3 out of the 4 holes 1cm higher (one will no longer be on the bracket!).
The coil now clears the speed sensor.

Next, wiring:
The Wasted spark coil has 4 pins on the top. This is a Mini-Timer power connector.
Pins are arranged as follows, viewing the coil from the HT lead side, from left to right.
4 3 2 1
4=+12V (Used to go to Fuse 52 on MEMS and would be brown/pink)
3=+12V (Used to go to Fuse 52 on MEMS and would be brown/pink)
2=Pin 23 of DTA (Cyls 2/3) - (Used to go to pin 1 on MEMS ECU and would be white/yellow)
1=Pin 24 of DTA (Cyls 1/4) - (Used to go to pin 25 on MEMS ECU and would be white/black)

The above MEMS info is for people converting from MEMS with wasted spark to DTA.
If you are going wasted spark from Dizzy at the same time, the pin outs to MEMS will be different. Buy a new 4pin mini power timer connector and start from scratch.

All 4 wires need to be 10amp capable.

The HT leads are arranged on the coil as follows:
4 1
3 2
That's with the 4 pin connector at the top.

Hope that helps?

Thanks go to Geraint, Pete, Drew, Funkster, and anybody else for the collective info.
