Coil on plug Conversion

Hey Guys,


I need some help changing over from a distribuitor ignition system to a "Coil on Plug" distributorless ignition - Motor is a Honda B16A Vtec


The reason i need to change is because of limited space to work in, I allready have sourced the appropriate coils (Off a Honda CBR929RR Motor Bike) , but i need help to work out the best way to fire the coils, Im thinking of a Hall effect sensor off the crank but i need to know if this will work with the standard ECU and if i need cam sensors etc,


Im probably looking at something like this http://www.msdignition.com/ignition_24_6211_6215.htm
i will need the 4 channel one and set it up as direct fire

Any suggestions

Regards,



Ash

Re: Coil on plug Conversion

They are about $600 but the thing is that you need a aftermarket comp and the MSD unit,


Works out pricey, Have sorted it out now




Thanks

Re: Coil on plug Conversion

What did you do to sort it out?
Where/how did you trigger the coils? Where was your pickup?
Cheers
