OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is TEMPORARILY PAUSED to allow our warehouse staff time to catch up on the shipping and backorder backlog for already received orders in progress.

Our checkout system will re-open on Saturday January 29th at 3:00pm (MST)

You may want to copy and paste to save the items your cart (that includes links back to the items listings) in order to save them, just in case your browser does not. We hope that you will return when our online checkout resumes accepting new orders.

ORDER REQUESTS ARE BEING FULFILLED/SHIPPED as backordered items become available, but many popular products are delayed or in short supply. Restock ETAs for backordered items are often either unavailable, or unreliable. We continue to answer emails as best we can, but we are operating with less than half of our normal staff, so please be patient. Your understanding is appreciated while our company struggles to weather the challenges from Covid-19, and do what we still can to support the aircooled VW hobby.

Pertronix Second Strike Digital Ignition Box (CDI: Capacitive Discharge Ignition) With Adjustable Rev Limiter, Model 500

Pertronix Second Strike Digital Ignition Box (CDI: Capacitive Discharge Ignition) With Adjustable Rev Limiter, Model 500


 
Pertronix Second Strike Digital Ignition Box (CDI: Capacitive Discharge Ignition) With Adjustable Rev Limiter, Model 500 provides a reliable multi spark to catch those occasional cylinder misfires. Fully adjustable rev limiter protects your engine too!

This is compatible with points, and all points replacement devices.

Rev Limiting Rotors work, but are non-adjustable and are not cheap (You have to buy another one every time you buy a new rotor (Cha-CHING!)!


The Rev Limiter function takes out individual ignition strikes a little at a time to safely prevent dangerous over-revving, and to prevent plug fouling. It's easily and quickly adjustable in increments of 100 RPM. Excellent Unit!

This digital micro-controller based unit provides a much greater accuracy (+/-0.01%) over analog systems. There is no need for old resistor style pills or chips, our easy to use rotary switches adjust the RPM limit to an ultra fine resolution of 100 RPMs. Random spark stealing method provides superior control of rev limits and a rapid response time to over rev limit events, preventing engine failure.

Once the established RPM limit is reached, random spark stealing starts within one spark, reducing plug fouling common with repetitive stealing type limiters. Rev limiters come with multiple analog filters and one digital filter to prevent coil noise interference from affecting the established rev limit.

A lot of CDI's are "overkill" and simply provide what we feel is "too much" spark energy, but this unit gives a nice boost in ignition power without being stupid.
