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.

I really can't speak for others as I don't know their testing methodology compared to ours. Our own testing found that energy output on the R8 coils was essentially the same as other oem coils, like the MK5/6 GTI/R as an example. There's variance you can see in the graph above, but I'd say that's well within the noise. We have an entire engineering team dedicated to spark deliver / ignition, and related products that mostly operates out of a different facility than the APR HQ in Alabama. I'll be working with them to do a bit more of a deep dive into the ignition world to get a little bit better info.

Engineering resources are shared across all locations and such. I'm working with the team to see if we can come up with an in depth guide on ignition coils so shed more light on the subject. Should be helpful in general!

More spark, more chance to light off the burn completely. Direct OEM replacement in different colors w/ warranty. So far people like them and are using them on stock and super high 1000 HP builds with good success!

I've provided evidence. We measured the coils and provided graphs of the output both stock (from various coils) and ours.

On the flip side there are many competitors that simply say: 10% more energy output, and call it a day. No evidence provided.

Ignition coils are relatively new to the APR brand. We’ve only been in the game for a few years now, and have only a couple hundred thousand units under our belt, so far. But what you may not be aware of is we own around 70 different brands, some of which have been in the ignition game since the beginning (mostly on the domestic side). So decades of ignition coil creation and millions sold. To get into the market we had to know how to make ignition coils and that means having advanced testing equipment so we could measure the factory units and then improve upon them. I don’t know how others have tested coils, but since we own brands that physically made coils for decades, we had to own equipment to test output. Simply put engineering uses that equipment to test the coils, define what they want to improve, and then retest and present the data for the product specs.

If you're interested in seeing some of those brands, feel free to have a look: Holley - Family of Brands

APR, Holley, MSD, etc are just brands. Our parent company bought the Holley group of brands years back, and then when public. Resources and employees are share across all the brands we own.

Our electrical engineers test the ignition coils on a test stand and provide information, such as the data I’ve posted, which is millijoules of energy output at various milliseconds of dwell. I’m not sure what you mean by “proof.” This is no different than us, or anyone else in any industry, providing other information such as dimensional measurements, flow data, pressure drop, dyno data, acceleration data, and so on.

As for changing spark gap, I haven’t found it necessary. However, with stronger spark energy we have found customers who are able to increase plug gap without the spark blowing out, so to speak.
