RE: [DML] Tune-up



Did you replace the ignition wires and dist. cap after the coil fried your
rotor? If the rotor melted what do you think the "blaster coil" did to your
wires and cap? Sounds to me it was working as advertised and blasted the s-t
out of them too! You can count me as a non-fan of high performance ignition
parts for the PVR V6. The stock components are by far the most trouble free
IMHO. In my experience a miss in rainy weather that goes away when dry
almost always involves faulty ignition wires. Under the circumstances I'm
surprised the wires don't give you a visual clue but I'd guess your problem
is there regardless of how old or new they are. If the dist. cap is leaning
like the "Tower of Pisa" then there's another suspect. "Blaster coil"
strikes again with more voltage you can ever harness. I'm surprised it
doesn't electrocute testy passengers too! Heh.maybe their working on that as
an option. Where can I get one?

Guys; I am working on my D a little since I have a rough running engine, and
am curious what the original coil has for output voltage. I'm looking at
John's 25,000 volt Bosch coil [as an upgrade?] since I doubt the stock one
has that much punch to it. I have +4 plugs that are a little old but few
miles and are still in good shape; also Johns 8mm wires and upgraded
resistor. I once used the blaster coil with my setup but I remember having
problems with it - I believe it was melted distributor rotor but can't
remember correctly. Nonetheless, with what I have as far as plugs, wires and
resister; which coil should I be going after? My engine runs like garbage
when it rains, and when it is dry it sputters at stops from time to time and
just doesn't feel "right". Thanks guys -----Dani B. in FL!
