DIY Ignition

Being an advocate of having a crack at anything (cars included), Im contemplating on modifying my stock XFs ignition by removing the ignition module off the distributor body and mounting it on a heatsink away from the motor. I want to also run one of those GT-40 style ignition coils (they are supposed to be allot more efficient and cheap - Dont want to spend much) Now heres the weird bitů

Jaycar have a programmable ignition module that runs between the distributors reluctor pickup and their ignition module kit. Ive bought both kits (programmable ignition module & ignition module) but I want to run the stock ignition module with the programmable ignition module. Im wondering if anyone has built one of these programmable ignition kits before and wether its worth doing?

Re: DIY Ignition

I think there will be a little bit of work trying to get other ignition modules to work with it but im sure as hell that it can be done. When I get something working, Ill let you know. Just a matter of designing a simple buffer to match the TTL to correct impedances I think. Ive just gota find the input specs on the ignition module an im away. (Work in progress)
