What are the best coil packs for a 2005 9-2x aero

I’m having trouble accelerating at 3k due to the car stuttering and I’ve done some research and I believe it’s the coil packs but I’m not sure what the best kind would be?

STI coilpacks.  Just be sure to swap over the rubber sleeves as they may be different lengths.  22433-AA541  was the ones I got for my 05 heads.  Don't know if the part is the same for 06 heads.  Order from a Subaru dealership online to be sure you don't get counterfeit ones (yes, that's a thing).

STI coilpacks have a different dwell than WRX coilpacks, why are they "better" than stock? I would definitely use OEM coilpacks but would continue with the WRX part.

IME bad coilpacks always throw a code, so I'd look elsewhere before buying new ones as they aren't cheap.

My thought was they provided a stronger jolt to the spark plugs.  I believe the dwell time is not an issue as the STI ones can do more but without special ECU programming they will perform normally.  Just be sure to swap over the rubber boots from the WRX coil packs.

If the OP really wants one of the best options, then these would fit the (large) bill:  https://www.rallysportdirect.com/brand/okada-projects
