matches the pic below.

That's why in the line above what you quoted it says;

Using the above picture as a reference, the pinning is as follows from left to right:
The picture above the description has it oriented correctly

Plus it's how the wiring diagram from the WRX manual has the pins numbered.

Hey guys, a friend on here sent me some coils for spares from japan, which look an aweful lot like the us wrx coils im about to convert to. I was wondering if anyone knew what exactly these are. Heres the pics, and the part numbers on them are the following...

22433AA390
Diamond
FK0053 12V
6725





im hoping i can just use these, they look identical and gave the rubber insulator boots that dont crack.

what did you guys do with the untouched ground? did you just plug the connector back in and leave it there?

anyone who has successfully done this please read my problem thread. i could really help in getting mine fixed.

thanks.

Must have missed that, haha. Whoops. Sorry, wasn't trying to nitpick. Definately owe a big thanks for this sticky. Very useful mod.

I mentioned in the email, as I am sure you know now, but I will post in case someone else wants to know in the future. Those are EJ20H coil packs.

your not going to believ this but i found my original coil... i kept it aside for you in case you need one. I have not done the swap yet, was hoping to do some more research in order to confirm these are wired the same way. They are wired and ready to install, i just want to confirm they work the same as the wrx coilpacks before i go threw the trouble of installing them.

So NASIOC, will EJ20H coilpacks, as seen above, work and wire up the same way as wrx coilpacks? they look identical to me...

I don't think anyone here is going to be able to answer that definitively. My guess is that they are going to work the same. I would suggest that you convert just one cylinder and verify that it runs as expected. If it doesn't, it would be pretty easy to revert back.

Also I if you like. I can clip the EJ20H wiring harness to send the ends to you for a cleaner wiring job.

HELP!
Just just this swap and I have no idea what I could have done wrong...
Can someone think of something really stupid that I might have missed?
I followed the instructions over twice.
My coilpacks I bought were a grey colour instead of being all black.
Off of a 2005.
Is there any wiring difference there?
I have a version 1 WRX (GC8-A EJ20G)

Is anybody running high boost on this kind of coilpacks to show me that they really work?
The reason I'm asking is because I have a lot of ej20g spare coilpacks that I use every time I break one under high boost....and it is really getting old.

i'm in the middle of this, should my car be able to run on only three of them?

my soldering iron died on me on the last one and I just wanted to try it on three.

it cranks, starts and dies. does that sound normal?

just wanted to know before i get disappointed when i get all 4 done.

(the forth isn't plugged in at all)

not sure what was wrong before but i finished it all up and it idles better then before now. but now i think one of my connections somewhere came undone. lacking power and i'm getting back fire. so i'm thinking i'm running on 3 or less cylinders
