Jaycar Programmable Igniton

I am thinking about fitting the Jaycar Programmable igniton to my NC i6. I know the kit works by you setting the static timing to 40 deg BTDC and then all the kit does is retard the timing less to give more advance. But I am just wondering if the distributor rotor can handle 40 deg of advance once the hall effect device is triggered. Or will it crossfire to other cylinders? 40 deg of advance would be 20 deg of rotor movement right? Also would I be able to run the TFI module off the programmable ignition or will I have to get the Jaycar high energy ignition to fire the coil? Also would anyone know the pinouts on the TFI module. Specifically which wire provides the hall effect signal to the ECU and which one returns it?

Any help appreciated.

Re: Jaycar Programmable Igniton

Thanks for your help guys. I went into Jaycar and asked if I could fit it to a ECC IV and they were unsure. But I don't think I will be using it now anyway cos even silicon chip themselves think it is too crude for car use. What are my other (**cheap**) options? All I want is a LPG timing curve.

Cheers.

Re: Jaycar Programmable Igniton

the options aren't cheap.

I thin unichip will run two timing tables one for lpg one for petrol but its $1250 fitted and tuned.

That would buy a lot of petrol!

What is the price for the deltamax ignition computer, and would it end up being cheaper in the long run just to go straight to the unichip.

Price is $330 A guy called Gazadaman off fordmods told me about it. It can run two curves and is programmed via a laptop. So I can change the curve as many times as I like! I have emailed the manufacturer regarding compatibility with the I6 ECC-IV as the vane in the dissy for number one cylinder is smaller then the others and am wondering if this means number one cylinder will get more/less advance?
