Seems everyone is reselling the IGN-1A these days !

They probably are one of the strongest coils about.

That said, any stock LS coil is bloody powerful and very few will need anything stronger.

Absolutely, it isnt difficult to do and will have no effect on power for about 99% of builds

Certainly if more quiet motoring is what you want, it's the only way to do it.

How are you determining accuracy here ?

Are you simply throwing an alarm when the ecu pulls timing when it thinks it hears a noise it deems to be detonation ?
