I'm interested a trigger wheel sounds great for the Opel

i down loaded the e-machine software but i just don't have the skill to come up with anything

would love to have a custom intake manifold to mount my quad TB's on

can be used for direct fire ignition

So basically the little cut out in the wheel allows an on off on off signal to be generated buy the Hall effect sensor.

That pulse is then used by the FI/ignition computer to time when and how long the ignition spark will be.

also used by FI systems to synchronize when to fire the fuel injectors

People that run Megasquirt FI systems, a lot of them head to the Junkyard to get Ford Trigger wheels and adapt them to whatever car they have

we have been needing something like this for years (that's available to every one not to just a select few)

HTH HTMS (hope this makes sense)

The classic answer is that a trigger wheel mounted on the crank is more precise then what One in the distributor would be.


and you would be able to eliminate the slight parasitic loss from the Dist

but all this is a little bit of smoke and mirrors on a street car below 7K rpm probably wont. make a difference


The real reason is bling bling its just cool to run crank trigger.
