Just had tuned and had a problem, it made 280rwkw at 3300rpm but keeps breaking down, they said its the coil. Does anyone have any suggestions? They said use LS1 coils cause they have built in ignitors

Nice effort man. I guess there would be even more in it when ign problem fixed?

Anyway, i had a car a while ago that was supercharged and suffered similar symptoms. I bought an MSD coil that was only about $120ish. Worked a treat. Pretty sure i used the standard igntier. This was not on a falcon, but i can't see why it still wouldn't work.

You still running a dizzy and single coil i assume?

Hey,

Nice effort. My Turbo EL motor had the same problem. My cause was the fact i had hooked up the ems ignitor together with the ford tfi......It is prolly the tfi, so you will more than likely need a new dissy. I have an MSD 6AL, and blaster2 coil, and it is flyin. I would suggest you spend the money and get a decent ignition set-up, or you could end up maybe having detonation probs, and then it's kiss your head gasket goodbye.

What EMS you running?? Hope you get it sorted soon

Cheers

make sure you have good plug leads... i had breaking down caused by crappy top-gun leads. im now using ic&e with no dramas, oh, and i have a crane hi-6 and lx92, using distributor, but no tfi module, i gutted my dizzy to use a direct connection from the hall sensor to the ecu, the hi-6 is triggered by the sm4
