Electronic ignition conversion
« on: May 28, 2012, 03:26:15 PM »
Hello All,

Just a quick question are the electronic ignition conversion kits that replace the points in a normal dizzy as good as the 280z upgrade option.

Theres a few kits around and one on ebay that fit inside the dizzy cap.

List of toys

1977 - Datsun 260z 2+2
2010 - NT Pajero
2005 - Camry
2000 - Yamaha GP1200 Jetski
1994 - Nissan S13 Silva "Track Only"
2007 - Honda CBR1000RR

Yea they are great and in a lot of cases i will say superior as the old 280ZX base plates for the vacuum advance are very fragile. I fitted a set to a Jag and it improved it heaps.

Pertronix is a common kit just don't go down to Bursons and ask for it, they'll have no idea what you're on about.

Ye.. I ended up going with the kit too after wasting money on a 280zx dizzy that was in poor condition.. If your dizzy is in good nick I would go that way

Another +1 for Pertronix unit. Works a treat. Not long ago you could pick them up on evil-bay for a pretty decent price (what with the dollar being the way it is).

Yep.. That's the one. Just make sure that you have a single point distributor..
