In Reply to: twin spark ??????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! posted by alx on December 23, 1999 at 08:36:46:
: could this work, using a distributor cap from an eight cylinder engine (or whole distributor) to replicate alfa romeos twin spark to get better fuel burn and maybe more bhp?? i would use 1, 3, 5 & 7 as normal to fire befor tdc and 2, 4, 6 & 8 to fire either at 45 degrees after or 135 or 225, i would use the existing spark plugs but with two ht leads of each plug to the distributer cap. any advice appreciated (no micky taking please)
Why would you waste your time doing unnecessary stuff like this. Are you an engineer from the factory or something?
My '73 with 140hp doesn't need more burn and neither does my 400hp (at the rear wheels) '94 Supra TT. I doubt a mod like this would ever pay off!!
