These PerTronix Ignitor III® solid-state ignition systems feature an adaptive dwell that maintains peak energy throughout the entire rpm range, reducing misfires while improving engine performance. Peak current level is reached just prior to spark for maximum energy without the heat buildup, increasing coil performance and module reliability. They adjust spark timing at higher rpm to compensate for the inherent electronic delay, sense startup, and develop more energy for quicker, easier starting. The PerTronix Ignitor III® solid-state ignition systems have a built-in LED for user feedback confirmation of the rev limiter setting.

Excellent Upgrade over Points

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

I used this in conjunction with the Flame Thrower III Coil Pertronix offers and have really enjoyed the improvements over my points system. The most noticeable difference has been on the interstate. Since my car doesn't have overdrive I turn a lot of RPMs doing 70+mph. The car runs much smoother at speed and the exhaust even has a cleaner note to it. I can definitely tell the pair has my engine burning fuel more completely. I didn't notice much difference starting the car or idling but the upper RPM range where points systems usually show their short-comings is much improved. The rev-limiter works great and is easy to set with a little patience. Also the installation of this unit over the Ignitor I and II is so much easier since you don't have to remove the rotor shaft to install the magnetic ring. Simply screws right into place of your old points system. Make sure to run 12V to this system as original points systems used 6V - you'll need to run a new switched power source to the module!!!!! ...read more

Worked first time

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

The coil in my '68 Corvette went out, so I decided to replace it and the points with the PerTronix Ignitor III and a Flame-Thrower III coil. I like that the coil is black and the Ignitor fits in the stock distributor giving it a stock look. Installation was easy, and the engine fired first try.
