RIPP Performance Coil Packs

I haven't seen many posts about this. Is it worth the install? For anyone who has done this, any noticeable differences?

Save your money. Numerous members race with stock coils.

There's always a few who will spend the money to get every 1/1000th second to reduce track times. Driver reactions will gain you more IMO.

For street use and occasional tracking, a total waste of money IMO. Most will agree, only a couple will beg to differ.

I picked up 60k Sultans of Spark coils for about $215 running platinum plugs gapped to .065. Took me a little while to pull the trigger. But after several articals showing gains of 11-15 hp at the wheels. I figured why not. I dont notice much difference when running regular fuel but when I put 93 in I can feel the difference.

A wide variety of opinions on coil packs. Most will tell you snake oil -- save your money. I believe its your car your performance gains do what you wish.

Honestly I would like to see more people (members) tuning with bolt-ons and testing so we can see some real numbers. Instead of just spouting save your money, don't do it it's a waste, do what you want. A few sources hotrod mag. along with some procharged Camaro YouTube video showed us some results, BUT they also are trying to sell us.

----- Some outside perspective not invested in marketing a product and sharing REAL numbered results would be great.

FWIW the Demon, Hell Cat, SP and RT all use the same coil pack. If there was a need for more energy I would think the SRT engineers would have used different coil packs on the Demon. BTW the stock tune on the HC runs a higher dwell time when compared to the SP and RT.

Don't forget the fact that car manufacturers save A LOT of money by being able to use the same part in multiple vehicles and engines in this case. Just because a part is used in 4 different engines, doesn't mean the engineers wished they could just make a specific coil pack for each application. It comes down to economics and the bottom line. The link above does show models from 2017+ in Jeep, Dodge, Ram and Chrysler. So they must have changed the coil pack to some degree from that year on.


Just an alternate view to consider.


That said, not sure if the RIPP (or other maker) coil packs do anything or not. They say they will have results in a future video, IIRC. Haven't seen update to this point yet.

That may have been the norm in the olden days but considering even wheel caps and are different I doubt SRT engineers would keep the same coil packs if there was power to be had. Between the HC and Demon FCA was on a mission to post the highest production HP they could. If they could have tacked on a couple of more ponies with coils they would have spent the extra coin.

Like I said, there is a difference in the tunes where more dwell is added on the HC and Demon as opposed to the 5.7/6.4.
