I am planning the ignition set up on a PE3 controlled Mk1 Escort with YB Cosworth Turbo engine. On other cars I have used CBR coil on plug coils with great sucess but always with a CDI box to drive them. On this particular set up I dont plan on using massiv boost so would prefer to run the coils directly off the PE3. The coils are simple 2 pin dumb coil sticks with a resistance of about 1.6ohm across the pins. Would these work straight off the 4 ignition drivers inside the PE3? and does anyone know dwell set up that would be a good starting point.
Any idea on the polarity of the coil connection pins on the denso coils sticks? I have had different advice on which of the pins looking onto the connector with the coil infront of you is positive. This was important for running CDI on these coils but may not be such an issue with running straight from the PE3. Thanks
