I too am interested in a coil pack ignition system to do away with the problems of the optispark, but have a couple of questions about it. one question i have is will this eliminate the problems from moisture damage that can be caused by pressure washing? also, would the delteq system be a better choice due the fact that they offer a kit to mount either on one valve cover, or on the radiator mount? any feed back would be appreciated.
I checked the delteq site out thats a great site thanks for the input I bought a caddy module and coil packs all in one for $60.00 on ebay normally $200.00 for the module alone now I just have to get the wiring and mounting brackets from delteq. OH YEAH!!!!!!!
I've been searching....and I haven't really come up with anything that seems to be 'mainstream'....and I can't believe that no one has come up with a conversion that totally eliminates the optispark unit, uses a crank or cam position sensor and a coil on plug setup.
Ford EDIS8 Conversion using GM coil packs. Rock solid spark, limp home mode and 50* of available adjustment. Cheap parts available at damn near every salvage yard and easy to wire up.
Though this option is no good if you are using the stock ECM. I'm contemplating converting it to C.O.P (only requires changing the coils and a little tweak to the wiring) but honestly the gains are negligable. I'd rather spend the effort elsewhere.
1996 Chevy S10, 7" Beltech Drop, Mini C-notch, LT1/Th350 Combo controlled by a Megasquirt V2.2 and ignited with a custom EDIS8 DIS conversion.
The Accel DFI would work just fine with this setup. I'm using a Megasquirt to control mine. It is also compatible with the MSD DIS+6 boxes. There is even a stand-alone controller for using it on carbed applications.
