What are you seeking from upgraded ignition coils ? do you have firing issues with stock ones (ie worn) or have you modified to the point you need a much stronger spark beyond stock coils ?Hiya I'm just wondering what ignition coils people have upgraded to from there stock fit on a Audi a5 2l TFSI engine, B8. I was told that the R8 ignition packs fit! can anyone confirm this for me ? Many thanks
+1, I'm running stock coils on a stage 2 A8l 3.0T 430HP, no sign of the factory coil packs struggling to ignite at increased boost levelsI don't know how upgrading the ignition coils would do much performance wise.
You only need a stronger spark if the gap is so wide, that the normal voltage from a normal coil isn't enough for the electric to jump and thus generate a spark. So unless you're running some crazy boost or really rich air/fuel, all you're doing is paying more for the red plastic on the R8 instead of the black plastic.
I can wear Michael Jodan's shoes, but that doesn't mean I will be able to dunk.
