I'm in the need for coil packs so pretty much is it just like spark plugs go OEM or should I go with the IPD...

Here's the you tube vid we did on the stock vs. Ipd HD coils

If anyone has any other questions don't hesitate to ask, I understand of course 3rd party feedback is generally preferred.

Everyone says OEM.. When I got the packs last week I just used the same spark plugs and everything seems to work fine..

I'll be ordering mine shortly, I have a stutter when car reaches around 13/15 psi and the ECU eventually corrects and will not let me go above 7psi, after the correction no more stutter at WOT (though slow with little boost) - hopefully the new coils will fix my error. I suspect it will though, might change the fuel filter while I'm at it too, plugs/filter were changed last week and no help.

Ya these fixed any and all problems I had with my car well except my boost leak of course... But I give my 2 thumbs up on this.

Just finished the install of the IPD HD coils, and some stock plugs. I had the 5500-6500 hesitation. In my case, the first gear acceleration was ok, but really showed itself in second gear on a hard pull. A test drive after the install was as expected, everything fixed. Nice surprise, the 'pop' is back again.

In my case I think it was the plugs more than the coils, my coils looked great, my plugs looked like ....


The first one to get installed, I pulled out to confirm the fit, and they pull apart easily, not a big deal, but interesting.


If you're looking for bling, this might not be the choice, 2 of the 5 coils were missing the cool ipd graphics.


I recommend using compressed air to blow the dirt out of the plug hole before removing the plug. And after torquing the plug in, the socket is really stuck on the plug...it took a needle nose vice grip to pull the socket off each time.

OK , Great : BUTT ?

When the R first came out Didn't a few tuner's grab the ( R ) coil packs , as they were better then the stock units ?

So If those are Better , and the IPD's HD's are Better , are the IPD's HD-R's Coils
also, another Increment Better then IPD HD's ?___?

IPD-HD vs IPD-HDR - ( :confused: )

As Looking @ the Photo's It looks like You have some R IPD HD's and some HD's - Coil Packs .
The B5254T3 looks to be the $49.94 , so I was wondering If they are the same .

I agree - don't think you received all HD R coils. Seems like a mix-up.

I looked at the pics too, trying to decide if I wanted to install something I might likely be returning. The HD's have a black socket, and the HD R's have a grey socket, all 5 had the grey part, and otherwise looked the same. I'll let you know what IPD says when they contact me about it.
