I sent Okada Projects USA an email the other day about the red logo caps and they just replied back. It turns out that the caps cover the internal parts of the coils so I should not remove them. I will just run them with some spacer washers under my coil cover if needed. Here is their reply, which came within 24 hours of my inquiry, pretty good service

Thank you for purchasing our products.

Okada Projects USA Inc. is now changed its name of business to Ignition
Projects.

As for your concern about the fitment, we have made this coils to fit with
the engine head cover on ,but
it is barely fit and depend on the units and/or cover, there are some that
does not fit.
We have not physically seen that doesn't fit yet, but we have heard that
before.

either way, you may not remove the red logo cap of the Plasma Direct coils.
It is not just a cosmetic but, necessary to cover the internal parts.

Thank you.

Cool, Ive seen evidence of people just tightening down the plug cover which bends the caps slightly. Maybe try grinding down the ribbing on the inside of the plug cover with a dremel tool to get the extra clearance. The cover would look odd sitting higher with spacers.

Thanks, I'll give it a look over when I get the coils in my hands. I was thinking of going with a carbon fiber cover if it makes a difference or if it is easier to work with. dunno.

I received my Okada Coils today, and they look great. They look slightly different than your standard S2000 coil.

Firstly, they feel heavier - 194 grams oem vs 220 grams Okadas. The parts look more like ap1 coils than ap2 coils. There are no part numbers on mine, it looks like they have been ground off.

I was told by the manufacturer that the red caps are there to cover the internal parts of the coil and given the weight difference I think they have inserted their parts from above. Seeing that there is some extra gel type material around the red caps on top of the coils that seems plausible. The red caps on mine look a little slimmer compared to the picture posted in an earlier part of this thread, so maybe my coil cover will fit ?. The previous owner of my coils said he didn't have an issue with fitment and the coil cover. Internally it looks like there are two contact springs, I believe the factory coils have a single spring. The instructions don't say anthing about changing the spark plug gap, I'm going to run them with a .044" gap. They come well packaged and they give you a nice little badge , who doesn't love badges !

I was able to get my oem ap1 coil cover to work with the Okada coils, I just added two small washers under each mounting point, the difference isn't really noticeable , I think it works just fine.
