No, the ignition system is not the same.....  What we would get on our cute
little ck engine lite is the 2312 code on the MAC 11C (no signal from dist),
and the lite would flash as soon as the gear/dist got out of it's 2 degree
window from tdc......   Would all this flashing hurt the car? Absolutely not,
just a royal pain in the rump.......  And as long as the tdc is correct at
the dist during start up, there would be no prollums starting the car.......
 I would guess that the computer would assume a max value of + or -2 when the
cam kicked the dist out of operational spec.....
