PerTronix Ignitor® solid-state ignition systems deliver more energy with greater timing accuracy. The secret lies in the trigger magnets, which spin with the rotor and operate a switching module that requires no external control box. These systems are immune to heat, oil, and debris—and install in about 15 minutes with only two wires to connect. They come with a switching module, hardware, and instructions. Ignitor® is an ideal choice for collector car restoration because they fit entirely under the distributor cap.

Upgraded my ford 460 with pertronix ignitor and flamethrower coil. Also changed the sparkplugs to bosch +4. What do you recommend for spark plug wires? One of my wires was defective so want to change them all.

Asked by ODD STIAN on July 10, 2017


Get the best set you can afford. It will compliment the ignition upgrades you've already performed.

Does this come with a new ignition coil?

Asked by DANIEL on December 10, 2016


No it doesn't. The change out from the points and condenser to this ignitor was fairly simple. I also changed my coil with a PNX-40011.
