HSTuning - R8 Coil Pack and NGK Spark Plug Sale

HSTuning

Ready to race!


We have the 06E905115E "Red Top" Audi coil packs in stock and ready to ship

If you are the owner of a FSI/TSI powered car and you're experiencing misfires we stock the R8 coil packs. These come stock in most of the high output Audi engines and we've had good luck using these when the stock FSI/TSI coils fail, which we've seen a lot of lately. We also highly recommend using these coils when installing a K04.





The coil packs can be purchased online by clicking the above image or HERE

Here's a shot of some of the coil packs getting ready to be packed up and sent out today.



For those of you looking for more technical data on these coil packs, here is what we've found so far with our bench ( oscilloscope ) testing:

1) These coils can be used on your FSI/TSI engine at ANY level of modification. They function just as well on a dead stock car as a highly modified one.

2) They are NOT the same coils with red housings. The secondary circuit on the R8 coils has a higher resistance (more windings) than the stock coils. In fact the secondary circuits were slightly closer to the Okadas we tested than the secondary of the stock coils.

3) We tested these between 12 and 16 volts (remember if your alternator is charging properly the input will be right around 14). We tested them between 200 and 16,000rpm. The stock coils started to misfire at a much lower rpm than the R8's with a stock spark plug gapped @ .032".

4) The spark was visibly brighter and more intense on the R8's when compared to the stock coils @ every rpm we compared in the stock rev range. We didn't compare anything under 1,000rpm.

5) We were able to open the gap on the plugs much further with the R8's than the stock plug with out misfiring at the same rpm/voltage.

6) Here is what we were finding as an AVERAGE on the secondary circuit for each of the coils.

Stock: 3.3 M ohms
5 cylinder coils: 4.75 M ohms
R8's: 5.31 M ohms
Okadas: 6.2 M ohms


We've been receiving plenty of questions regarding what spark plugs we run in our local customer cars as well as our in house MK6's. Here is the break down of what spark plugs we recommend along with the gap recommendation.

I have a set of these. They look better made than the OEM VW ones, and after mine started misfiring badly under WOT, I popped these in along with some NGK plugs. Happy K04 now!

How often are you suppose to change the coil packs

They don't have a specific mileage or time for replacement. We generally replace them:

1) When a car starts misfiring from a coil failure
2) When installing a K04, Stage 3, or Stage 3+
3) When replacing spark plugs.
4) If a customer is pro-active and wants the coils changed before the stock coil fails.

Great discussion going on in John/GunKata's coil pack thread as seen HERE
A few excerpts taken from that thread:

I should probably clear up a few things about these coil packs, we've had a ton of questions lately! Here is what we've found so far with our bench ( oscilloscope ) testing.

Also, for those of you with interest in purchasing NGK spark plugs, questions should be made HERE.

what is the difference between the double platinum and normal laser? its only like a $1 difference, but is the double platinum "better" then? about to place order for coils and plugs.

As far as we can tell, they are one and the same. Even looking over the technical sheets on NGK's website shows no difference other than what they are pregapped at from the factory. The Laser Platinum is NGK's trademark for the Double Platinum. http://www.ngksparkplugs.com/products/spark_plugs/laser_platinum.asp

The PFR7B's come pregapped at 0.028"
The PFR7Q's come pregapped at 0.032"

APR Stage I
Just bought the PFR7B's for my APR stage II MK6 and I can confirm they come at 0.028 gap. I re-gapped to 0.032 and will install today. I'm hoping to get rid of the tiniest misfire under WOT at 3k
