RX8 Coil Upgrade
« on: January 14, 2009, 05:32:30 PM »
MRP can offer the latest Genuine Mazda uprated RX-8 coil packs to offer it’s customers that are not available in the UK or Europe, at a saving of £44 per coil over the Mazda UK price.  

As you may know ignition coil packs have become a potential failure point on all 30,000 mile plus RX-8’s this has unfortunately led to engine failures attributed, 100% to the coils not powering the spark plugs properly.

When these coils fail the unfortunate driver often never even knows he has a problem as there is not a huge power decrease, however due to the coils not producing enough power to the spark plugs this has led to unburnt fuel being left in the engines Rotor chamber that has then washed the oil away leading to rapid wear, loss of compression resulting with the engine not starting properly and the only cure being a new engine.

Any competent DIY owner should be able to change these easily with very few tools as the coils sit directly on top of the engine to give your engine insurance against the type of failure explained above.

There are four individual coils fitted to the engine. Coils can be bought separately or as a set of four.  

With each full set of coils purchased,  MRP  will also make available a set of 8mm Magnecor silicon plug leads to help complete your ignition system upgrade at 30% less than the recommended price.

Anticpated delivery time 2 weeks

My RX8 had the Coil Pack & HT Leads upgrade this Morning,from Clive :)
It was just as well,that Clive replaced them,as 3 out of the 4 Coil Packs had already gone :( & was only a matter of time that severe damage would be done to the Engine :(,now the car goes like a dream & has good power surge :yes Oh by the way,my RX8 had only done 38,700miles this Morning,when Clive changed them :eek:
Anyone thinking of changing there`s,should `nt mess around & just go ahead & change them :)
Thanks Clive :D
