Default plus schem

sorry me sites down, blown network chip, but mobo has bad pci buss chip making whole puter junk. rats, so new one is on order. brand new micro atx. with autopower down
AMD 64bit processor , Im going green. look out. im triple backed up with off site disks.

ok, yes you can.

the trick is the ignitor module.

it is 3 pins.
1 pin is ground.
2; is gate
3; is coil.

it is just a fancy power transistor. with kinks.

the trick is to cut the gate orange wire and short the gate via a 150 ohm resistor to 12vdc.
the gate on the transistor is pulled to ground with a hidden 600 ohm resistor.

alternate ( no harm)
or pull ecu conns.

and jumper the resistor to pin a12 Orange wire into harnness side.
this protects ecu from any harm.

key on.
each insertion of the resistor and retraction makes huge spark at coil out tower.
put spark plug directly at coil with test lead , use regular spark wire.

see photo.
my MSquirt puter drives the stock ignitor.

im afraid to drive it with 12v full as if it is bipolar transistor , it might explode and cost serious money, but the 150 or 160 ohm are ok.
1/4 watt resistor is perfect any % tol.

ok i do know the factor ECU only puts 3.5vdc max into the gate.
so 12v is risky.

coil gets power from a fuse and not ecu or main relay.
let me know how you do.

cheers..
