    the coil packs have holes on them so you can bolt them down in the head but my head on the 2.4 does not have the threads on to bolt them down.

    what should i do?

    Try using the valve cover off the 3rz. or you can place the packs in the valve cover and drill and tap your own holes. Do it off of the motor of course and use some sealant on the threads.

    I think you would have to change the head.
