Remapping the ECU – remaps benefits and issues

Back in the good old days – the task of timing the ignition spark was performed by the distributor. The greater the RPM, the more the timing would advance.

This did a reasonable job but for the most effective power you would need to vary the timing to a greater degree than a fixed ratio advance curve. The electronic ignition system was borne.

Sports ignition coils and performance coil packs

Lets look at the job of the coil in the spark system and see what it does.

A car battery/alternator will produce a paltry 12volts, certainly not enough to jump an air gap and create a spark.
