Toyota COPs (Coil On Plugs)

This a common upgrade for MX-5s/Miatas, replacing the factory coil/ignitors for Coil on Plugs from Toyota Corollas/Camrys/Yaris's/etc..

There are a lot of install guides on the web so I won't delve into that, but below are compatiable part numbers for the Toyota/Denso coils.


It provides a much better spark for boosting applications and can sometimes work out cheaper than replacing a broken coil-pack, not to mention it's more compact and neatens up the engine bay. I would recommend buying them second hand from a wrecker instead of generic stuff off eBay. If you're planning to run it on a stock ECU than you should use a dwell reducer so the coils don't get damaged, for standalone ECUs you just need to set the dwell timing lower.

You can also buy brand new connectors for them, I ordered mine from here:

Below are some photos of my COPs wired up.

  1. That’s awesome, was looking into these as early nb’s tend to have a few coilpack issues.

  2. made a wire harness for cops? where they gonna get connected to?

  3. My whole car is running a custom wiring harness, so it gets wired directly to the ECU through the main harness.
