The cars damaged by the fires started by Norgan included a Vauxhall Calibra in Saxtead Road, and a Vauxhall Vectra, Ford Escort and a Mazda in Danforth Drive.
Two skips in Kings Avenue and Pembroke Road were also set alight.
A psychiatric report has been arranged before Norgan can be sentenced. A pre-sentence report will also be prepared by a probation officer.
Norgan, who the court heard is due to have a serious eye operation in early December, will be sentencing at Ipswich Crown Court next year.
Judge Peter Thompson told him: “You will be sentenced on January 6 in this court.
“In the meantime your bail will continue subject to the condition that you co-operate with the probation service who are going to produce a report about you after they have seen the psychiatric report that is going to be prepared.”
