Details Here

APR Ignition Coils are designed to be a direct plug-and-play upgrade to factory coils, and provide greater energy output, ensuring a stronger and more consistent spark. The commonplace replacement of factory ignition coils with those taken from the higher output Audi R8 is popularly believed to provide greater energy output. However, testing proves that they are no more powerful than the factory coils that are found on other engines. APR Ignition Coils increase energy output by up to 10% over stock. They are a direct upgrade or replacement, and come with a unique red, blue, or grey housing!

Features
  • Up to 10% more energy output than stock
  • Red housing with APR Logo
  • True upgrade, not just aesthetic
  • Direct plug-and-play





US Application Guide

PLEASE NOTE - If your factory ignition coils look physically different, other than color, these upgrades are not compatible.

2013 GTI ... currently running stock coils and plugs. If I up grade to these coils should I change plugs as well? If so what do you recommend?

NGK BKR8EIX
9ermike....I believe the NGK OE plug is PFR7S8EG. It is a resisted plug of 1k Ohm. But the OE coil is low resistance of I believe 3.3 M Ohm. Lower resistance has higher current but lower voltage (as explained to me be NGK). The R8 coil is 5.31 M Ohm resistance and has lower current but higher voltage. I wish I could get someone like Arin, who is with a company showing graphs and making statements to give us numbers relatable to what we often see for coil voltage. What I mean is we can easily find statements saying coil-on-plug coils these days are 30k, 40k, or 50k volts. That is all I ever see. As in seeing the graph, in this case, of APR showing us output energy in mJ/ms. And I ask; what is this in voltage output? 30k, 40k, 50k, or 60k??? I just don't yet know. NGK has worked with me to understand some. I gave them the known results of the OE's 3.3 M Ohm and R8's 5.31 M Ohm resistance. One NGK tech says our recommended OE plug being 1k Ohm would be low resistance for a higher resistance and higher voltage coil-on-plug like that of the R8 coil. They recommend going to the 5k Ohm resistance plug options if coil resistance and voltage is increased. So yeah, NGK's BKR7EIX should work or BKR8EIX (cooler) if '7' is not cooling efficiently. Those plugs are Iridium__50k miles__0.031" gap__and are a 5k ohm plug. There is one Platinum(90k miles) 5k Ohm option by NGK; the PFR7B, it has a reduced gap of 0.027", and it works well with OE coils. There is one more option in a 5k Ohm NGK plug with a 0.031" gap, and it is somewhat new. It is FR7BHX-S Ruthenium....it's new so they list it currently to be good for 60k to 120k miles.

So Arin, and I am just only trying to understand...if in the graph I read the three tested, not including APR, all showing to be most near 53mJ/2ms....how is the APR result of nearest to 56mJ/2ms a 10% increase in energy output? Rhetorical of course. I suppose, I mean, I do see it happens earlier on the graph...the moment when the APR reaches 5mJ/0.4ms....this is the moment the others appear to be 0.5mJ lower (10% lower). The others appear to be 4.3 to 4.5mj/0.4ms. This is all fine and understandable...but does APR know what the voltage output is, relatable to as I said, for both the OE stock coil and for their MS100208 shown above? In that the values of OE stock and APR coils are 30k, 40k, 50k volts, or what? I can do more research to find simply enough how to convert volts from say 55mJ/2ms...but if you could save me the math!, I would appreciate it. LOL It's been a while since the math I've done and becoming stacks of paper could be measured in height by feet and inches.

Arin, if you want to skip all that above...what is the voltage output of both the OE stock and the APR MS100208 coils...as we are typically presented? Is it 30k, 40k, 50k volts?

You can't compare point vs. point on this graph to get energy output, because the energy is being output over the entire pulse width. So to get the difference in output, you need to consider the area under the entire curve, over the full 2.0ms pulse width. Not just a single point. The total energy output over 2.0ms is what's ~10% higher than stock. Not just the 55mJ vs 53mJ at the very end of the curve.

Thank you...for that explanation. I can understand the area under the curve.
I truly don't care much about the accuracy of their 10% statement nor is the statement in question...and why I wrote "Rhetorical of Course." I am mostly only trying to find out if APR knows the voltage output of both the OE stock and theirs shown above, as it is commonly relayed to us. Which is typically; 30k to 50k volts. My interest is mostly based on always finding those numbers for volts when I find anything posted on the voltage output of newer coil-on-plug coils. But never seeing it being related to our stock and aftermarket coils. I would prefer to know what the voltage output is for both stock coil and their offering...if it is known. After writing all of that in the first post, and thinking I should just get to the point, is why I followed it with the shorter second post. I should just delete the first one really.

To get from energy to voltage, we need current... which APR does not list on their website for this coil. So we're stuck.

Energy(E) = Power(P) X Time(t)
Power(P) = Voltage(V) X Current(I)

V = E/(I*t)

I don't believe I have that specific information. In general I want to do a deeper dive into ignition coils with our engineers. I can't say how soon that will be, but we'll probably do a good writeup and video to jump more into this subject. I think it would be pretty interesting, and obviously would help move a few more units, so I'm down to do it!

Great, will be looking forward to more then.

Right, if we only knew the voltage or current, but we need one or the other. Hopefully APR will have more known values to share.
