Thought some of you might get a kick out of his hood ornament.
bahahah YES! that owns!
Any motor shots?
i'd love to see the powerplant
N/A Sohc Making 181whp no track runs as of yet. No mention of tq numbers but on a sohc I'm sure their not much to look at.
Thats friggin hilarious!!! Thats some nice numbers out of an NA SOHC Vtec! Not feeling the coil pack ignition instead of distributor though
Why are you not feeling the coil packs? Its a much better setup than a distributor.
Just never liked coil packs. Distributor is direct, no problems ( although it can lead to a jump in spark at higher RPMs). But, all my experience with coil packs have been bad, things go wrong. If you have the money for a nice set of coil packs, and for it. But, I feel that unless you are looking for that last absolute little tiny bit of accuracy/power thats only when they prove to be most effective. I might sound like I'm rambling, but, just what I think.
Still, sweet ass numbers to be pulling out of a NA SOHC VTEC.
Man, time to get out of the 80's, Direct fire is where its at. Use technology to your advantage. What type of cars have you driven that were coil pack and gave you problems? Most likely domestic.
Yeah, majority of them were, there was only one none domestic. The only one that wasn't was a Lexus IS 300, or something like that, a huge boat of a Toyota! Had the individual coils at the top of the valve covers. The domestics are great for puking the ignition modules (underneath the coils themselves). Whats a coil pack set up go for? I bought EVERYTHING under the sun MSN for my distributor, right down to the plug wires, and the SCI, for around 250 CDN, figured it would be the best way to go for ignition.
My GTI VR6 had problems with the coil packs...
Yeah and so do some of the E46's. The problem there is Bosch making sub par components, not the idea of coil packs being bad. Anyway, the new direct fire units are pretty good. Basically, any time I can use a computor to calculate things as accurate and quickly like ign timing I'm all for it. I run a coilpack setup on my turbo and the tuning advantages over a dizzy setup are enourmous. 60-2 crank pickup, 3d timing maps, and accuracy down to a 1/4 degree.
Hey that's funny, I had a GTi VR6 and now I have an E46. Neat! I'm destined to hate coil packs.
