Jacobs Electronics claims their ignition system does improve performance
because of more complete combustion. They say engines have a percentage of
missfires where no combustion occurs. The gain is around 12-15 hp for the Audi V8.
I like it because you don't lose anything or have any tradeoffs (once you
have bought it). The chips seem to get most of their power from setting the
advance curves for Hi-Test gas.
Is this just marketing or is there something to it? Anyone ever use it?
I am convinced enough to try it. I'll post after I have had it for a while.
