great quality coils for a great price they even have cosmo racing laser etched on them where the stock ones would say diamond. Ok with my stock coils running 20psi and 11.2 afr It would stutter and misfire if I didn't gap my plugs to .028 and with these coil packs I have my plugs gapped to .040 with no misfires and I made more power through the whole power band. ill post my virtual dyno sheet later.

Updates with a VD with plugs gapped to .040? That sound huge for a tuned subie...

I emailed Cosmo racing about the coils and got the following.

Question:
How do these coils compare to Okada projects Plasma direct coils?

Answer:
We have never done the comparison with Okada coils; it is too expensive though!

Question:
At what power level do these start to make a real difference and will the 2.0 ones be back in stock any time.
Also do they fit the JDM EJ207?

Answer:
The performance coils would make difference from idling the car and with much smooth idle; you would feel the change from mid- high RPM with faster pickup.

May I know what is your car model/year? The coils can only fit on the coil on plug EJ207. We expect to have new stock in about 1 week!

No I don't but I could throw my old plug and coil setup back on and do a few logs. The sti coils are the same as the 205 coils the only difference is the rubber boot is shorter on the sti

Default 7k overdue for spark plugs

My 2006 WRX is 7k overdue for a spark plug replacement, is it worth paying for authorized service?

Anyone else have any experience with the coils? I already had to replace one of my stock 140k mile coils and want to replace the others, and these are much cheaper than oem but don't want to use inferior products

I bought my self a set and threw them on today easy install. Install time about 45min. Turned the key car idles alot nicer now no issues with these so far the boots are slightly smaller than oem so its kinda tricky to get them in at least for the 205. Overall im satisfied so far because old coils were bad and idle was getting ridiculous so now i have a smooth idle. And these look nice and come packaged good
