How-to: Using plastic washers to "insulate" coil pack from head

Side note, put some 1/16" plastic washers between my cylinder head and the coil pack.  My theory is
that the plastic will prevent some of the heat transfer from the head to the coil pack (phenolic
effect), and slightly increase the ability of air to pass between the two.  It is after all all the
heat cycles that cause them to go bad.  I should have used 1/8" thick washers because those bolts are
plenty long.
