So how many are running these now on N54 ? Any issues ? Were there any issues / misfires to begin with ?
Curious as to why people switch if they are not experiencing problems.
Seems most people that upgrade their ignition still run close to or same spark plug gap. At least the ones running high boost anyways.

Jesus why are they so much $$$. You're talking about more than the entire PR kit just for coils.

Remember we're talking about ignition stability here. Nothing more to be gained from coil upgrades.
N55 and S55 are $1k: https://www.ignitionprojectsusa.com...e9x-335i-f8x-m3-m4-etc-3-0l-l6-sku-ip-a122609

I remember when they first launched they were hyping the crap out of their coils saying how much more power they can output vs. precision etc. I wonder how they stack up against the B58 coils since they don't publish any real numbers.

Just got my kit! Just waiting on my coils to come in. Bimmerworld had Eldor coils in stock if anyone is looking. Do we need to source the oem b58 coil bolts? Just realized they aren’t in the kit.

I got my eldor b58 coils today. They come with the bolts already installed in the coils. Did you get get a shipping notice when your kit was shipped?

Order is still pending fulfillment. Thanks for the heads up on the bolts! I would have been on bmwfans getting p/n to order them.

Any advice with spark plug gaps with the added energy from the coils, is there a benefit from wideing the gap or go with the same gap as previously?

Nexsys kit arrived today. Had to take a trip to Orlando tonight for the weekend. Decided to install the parts before leaving. Quick and dirty install with changing the plugs maybe 30 mins. Car is definitely much happier. Very smooth. Plugs and coils being replaced maybe had 8,000 miles. My hope is, one less thing to worry about. Thanks, Bahn and Austin for a great kit!

I was wondering, on the VTT/Stock kit, are the two big screw enough to old everything in place ?

Shoot me your order number in a PM and I can give you an ETA on your kit. Thank you for your support!

You can try opening them up. I'm running 0.022" @ 23 psi (Gen 2 6266) at the moment with no problems.

Thank you for your support! Make sure to use those rectangular holes behind the coils to run your coil wires through once you have time.

Hey @Traf great question, the ignition coil boots themselves are supporting most of the weight of the coil and bracket. The two bolts are simply ensuring the coils cant be pushed off of the spark plugs :)
