I have been looking around for some type of ignition computer for a ef 4.0 motor and have had some trouble.

I was looking at the haltech ig5 but this computer is no longer made. I sent haltech an email asking if they had any options and they just told me to buy a e6x for $1,350 and run only the igntion.

So i need to look at some other options which are,

1. Megajolt but dont really want to build one. Has anyone used one of these and were they any good?.

2. Msd or Crane ignition system but i think this could cost as much as a full computer.

3. Link Ignition Link but im not sure if this is a stand alone computer, can anyone confirm?.

The computer will be going in an xf if that helps any which has no computer at this stage.

Any help would be great.

John (EFFalcon) runs a Megajolt on his EF. I think he bought one pre-made.

megajolt is fairly easy to implement on an EF engine witht he coil packs in place.
i've fitted one up on my car (though never tuned it so havnt really seen benefits yet)

i purchased mine pre-made and sent to me, found it was the cheapest and easiest solution.
the hardest part is getting an EDIS-6 module from somewhere, i got mine from the states as they're fairly common over there aslong as someones willing to send one :)

Just wondering how much it cost you delivered and where exactly where you got it from if you dont mind me asking?.

I havent done much research yet but do you know where i can find info on the EDIS-6 module. I dont really know much about it.

Is the module part of an ecu or is it seperate and mounted in the engine bay?.

Thanks heaps.

:oops: Just did a search and found heaps of info on the module. Disregard the part about info on the edis-6. The internet is a wonderfull thing.

On EF's the edis module is part of the ECU so nut much use to you, but in the US it is a seperate box.

They cost about $45USD and will be about $20 shipping (thats what I was quoted anyway).

...looks like you found out anyway

i got my megajolt from http://picasso.org/mjlj/?q=node/11

you'll have to do the conversion from $us to $aud, i think it was about $250 assembled & delivered plus the cost of the EDIS6 module.

The website for that system tells you a whole lot of nothing about its features. I heard that the rpm increments and adjusting points for timing were not so good.

Thanks for the info everyone.
