Sports ignition coils and performance coil packs

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

Just as a power transformer converts mains 240 volts into a usable 9 volts for your charger or appliance a coil will increase the voltage.

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

An ignition coil raises the voltage in some installations between 20 and up to 40,000 volts and this allows the creation of a spark which can jump the air gap between the plugs.

Flywheel lightening & performance gains from lighter flywheels

Lightening the flywheel – the flywheel works in a similar way to the wheel in the toy cars you used to rev up and release and let it zoom off. The heavy wheel located between the engine and the gearbox builds up rotational force with speed and momentum.

Effectively storing the energy and helping the car resist changes in engine speed – good for cruising at a steady speed but bad when you need a fast engine response.
