That is and has been my conclusion for a considerable length of time. Hype. I think the test results posted are accurate. Notice the engine rpms in the test result chart. Also, when the horsepower was higher with an electronic ignition, the horse power increase is only marginal.Jim Becker wrote:(Eugene, I think that is the conclusion you were hinting at.)
If you want a hotter spark at the plugs, open up the spark plug gap. The voltage required to jump the spark plug gap is dependent on the size of the gap and internal combustion chamber pressure - ie. the resistance.
Any way, if you want an electronic ignition, by all means get one.
