Pertronix, Msd And Other Electronic Ignition Options

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

I am wondering what type of ignition systems have found to be good for k series engines. I gather many would have nippon denso electronic dizzys, converted from points.

 

Has anyone tried the Pertronix Australia conversion kit? Or used an MSD system to increase spark and have a rev limiter option?

 

I'm building a 4k with 11.5:1 compression and twin sideraughts for mostly track racing. Am curious of the electronic ignition options of what has proven to be reliable and perform well

I use a denso 5k electronic dizzy with a Streetfire CDI (MSD's budget line) with a Bosch coil and 1.0 gapped plugs.

Capacitive discharge, multi spark to 3000rpm and rev limiter.

More energy that you'll every need.

I'm running a MSD 6-AL with their Blaster2 (i think) coil with a 4k points distributor (because the advance curve was a little better than the 5k one). Basically the same as Gavins but with more spark but for more monies. I probably wouldve gone the streetfire if i hadn't of gotten the 6al for mates rates.

 

Don't get too excited about MSD rev limiter tho, its more of a safety precaution for run away engines than a limiter to bounce off like the BeeR the silvia boys run.

 

I found that it was only when i have super heavily modified my motor that i even need to go as far as an MSD.
