    Finally got around to putting some additional info up on my web page. Eventually I'll get it up on my domain, but its faster for me to work with this stuff..

    Why insist on counting when the ring gear has the tooth counts stamped in?

    My god...talk about shameless self-promotion!!!

    Actually, I've used your site several times...good stuff cheap (free).

    I myself am trying to find a way to put some GM Parts Microfiche's up on a web page, so everyone can find their part numbers to facilitate price shopping. I got them cheap on ebay, just have to figure out how to do it.

    Interesting stuff! Re: The ignition test.

    I hate when they do a "baseline" dyno run with the old wires and plugs and then test all the other systems with brand new wires and plugs. In my mind that's guaranteed to skew the results. Still, the difference was pretty small considering the cash you have to spend for the ignition boxes. [​IMG] Some of them actually produced LESS power than the old stuff. [​IMG] I'd still like to see what the original setup would have done with just a new set of plugs and wires. [​IMG]

    I agree with the testing. You would THINK they would control their tests a little better, to give it some real authority. To me, that proves that ignition upgrades do nothing, but since they started with that accel piece that I have no idea what it is (stock HEI replacement, different coil, what??) They also mention big improvement over points. Well, HEI was a big improvement over points, so whats that prove? How many people are still running points daily? (no thanks)

    I especially like the comment "the test results are clear". So what ARE the results? They don't even come out and say "none of these made enough difference to justify the cost", which is exactly what I gathered by the dyno numbers. but is that what they mean by "clear"? Are they just trying to keep advertises by not calling them worthless? Or did they see something that I missed in the article?

    Oh well, at least it was some back to back testing, proving at least that on that engine, back to back, those aftermarket ignition systems don't vary much from each other.

    RE : those aftermarket ignition systems don't vary much from each other.

    Or from a good stock ignition system for that matter! I'm still in the camp that believes that those systems aren't required unless you're running in the 7,000 RPM plus zone pretty frequently (which is pretty much impossible with most of our engines). [​IMG]
