Anyone put aftermarket coil packs on their 3.6? Is it worth it?

RIPP sells them for less than $300 and claims it gives the 3.6 better gas mileage and more HP over the OEM coil packs.

Only dyno evidence comes from Ripp. Served with a grain of salt


12 HP with no other changes on this 3.6L Ram

When I was a kid, 17 yrs old. I was conned into this on an old small block. Get and MSD or Accel, try this plug, that plug, after switching ignition setups 3 times, I went back to the factory Distributor and Champion plugs, it ran perfect and did not foul plugs. Unless you are really going after the very last .01 in the quarter mile going from 8.00 to 7.99 seconds and changing plugs after every round, it is probably just a waste of money and effort to mess with Mopar's stock ignition.

12 HP...really? Don't get me wrong, on my jet boat I went from points to a pentronix and it truly improved performance but these engines are already using high output coils. Even the HC uses the same coils as a 5.7(68238603AA) only difference is they run more dwell in the tune. I wonder what the new drag pack is running?

Well, hot rod magazine claims aftermarket coil packs apparently work on the HEMIs.

The difference/variable between dyno runs can be 12HP.

I wouldn't waste my money on aftermarket coil packs.

Just a pretty color, period.

For a daily driver, no.

For a car that spends all its time chasing lower ETs, maybe...
