While i know Haltech Used to make an ignition only ECU (IG5) they're proving impossible to find.
What other options do i have for tuning ignition timing on an EF with Coil packs, i don't need the fuel control since i'm using LPG.

i'm after something easier to tune then a unichip.
don't like the idea of having to goto a unichip dealer all the time.

You get them tuned once. They will hold 2 sets of ignition maps - switch selectable. I don't know what else to say. It will cost $500 to tune on a dyno including fitting. I picked up a second hand unit for less than $300.

Yeah i had a look at the megajolt a few weeks ago.
dont know if it could be implemented with the factory EF coil packs, i'll still have more of a look at it though.

Chef: you can, just not fueling wise :P

Megasquirt has definate support for the ford EDIS system. But yeah.. look into it. Im building a megasquirt II myself, and I know it has EDIS support. Im just not using it (EBII).

the megajolt (as per site) talks to the EDIS module, and thus tricks it to perform the required advance/retard operations, since the EEC V has that inbuild, i assume it would be more complicated?

has anyone research the megajolt for a EEC V and coil packs?
