Re: [DMCForum] Re: More Power (grunt, grunt grunt)

Oh that's just so easy to write isn't it? :-)

Answer: because the DeLorean distributor already has a trigger in it and 
with a distributor, the ECU does not need to "know" what cylinder is 
where, and because keeping the original dizzy you only need the ecu.... 
and that's it. To go distributorless, you get a less reliable system, 
have to rig up a trigger somwhere, buy coil drivers and six coil packs 
which would have to be full sequential because you can't run wasted 
spark on an odd-fire engine, and because of that you need an additional 
sensor on the cam to tell the ECU not only the position but also the 
phase of the engine, find an ecu with six coil driver outputs (most have 
four), find somwhere to put the coil packs, get HT leads to fit onto 
them, work out a way of driving the rev counter which feeds of the coil 
negative (and usually requires an extra coil driver consequently) and 
end up with a more complex ECU setup and STILL you have the problem of 
the odd-firing pattern.

Keeping the original distributor means no modifications to the engine 
whatsoever apart from pinning the mechanical advance.
