YOU REALLY DON’T KNOW HOW GOOD YOUR XR IS!
There are several problems that you can encounter when you try for the ultimate performance in any engine. In the Falcon XR’s and especially the Turbo versions or if you take your car above factory specifications, you have probably had them and don’t really know what is going on. Your mechanic has probably explained the problem, but what can you do about it. So what is the problem some may ask? The short version is: Increased cylinder pressure that you will encounter in performance engines and particularly the XR’s and Turbo engines, can cause the suppression of spark energy which in turn will increase the current flow to the secondary side of the coil. Plain English. It’s like blowing the spark out. It causes an open circuit condition and the coil stops firing. This is what happens with most coils even the genuine coil, most coils are running at 20,000kv and this not enough spark for a performance engine. If you’re a Turbo owner you may have already struck this problem. The most popular way to fix it is to reduce the spark gap so that the spark doesn’t have as far to jump. This is the usual remedy also used to make your Gas burning engines run better with less backfires. This does work, however reducing the plug gap also reduces the current required to fire the plug, and in turn reduces the intensity of the spark, thus in turn robbing the engine of most of its potential. This is where you need your mechanic to help you work out the plug and the gap scenario that you need. A high output coil on the other hand produces a more intense spark and uses less power to do this, in turn allowing for the plug gap to be increased to a wider setting in turn improving burning. More spark more power equals more torque and performance. You can try different gap settings and spark plug combinations or you can try a set of our new Autotrad Drifter coil. We have had these coils for six months now and have been testing them prior to this release. Fitted to an extreme performance engine and a Garden variety Fairlane they have shown an improvement over our last coil. The cars run better with the improvement felt on the first drive.
