    Well, I got my new coil pack mount fabricated aswell as my crank position sensor mount, and got my 36-1 trigger wheel mounted on the crank. It's pretty well good to go. I just have to find a set of spark plug wires to work for this set up...which is proving pretty difficult. I also have the EDIS set up wired in to the stock harness and I have an adapter board that will allow me to plug the megasquirt directly in to the stock harness and I will also be able to use all the stock sensors. Plug and play!

    Should have some pics tonight.

    Well here's the pics of my EDIS upgrade. Please excuse the cell phone pics. It's all I have right now :mad:


    First up is my coil packs and the mount I fabricated for them. I basicly cut my old MSD distributor in half and welded some **** on to it to mount the coil packs on.

    Now it holds the function of driving the oil pump and holding my coil packs. TFI FREE ZONE.

    Here is my EDIS 8 ignition module. The wiring is kinda messy at the moment, but I'll be putting the black wire loom **** over it soon and making it look nicer. I grabbed this, the coil packs and the crank sensor from the junkyard for $1 from a 97 Grand Marquis

    Here is my 36-1 trigger wheel and crank position sensor (AKA VR sensor). I made a custom aluminum mount for the VR sensor and the company who I bought my Megasquirt kit through also sold universal trigger wheels. With a little modification to the wheel it fit on rather nicely :)

    Now I gotta find spark plug wires for it. So far it's proving to be a pain in the ass, but I think thats because the guy I talked to at the local speed shop was kinda clueless. I'll return to him this week with a part number so he doesn't have to go through the very difficult task of looking **** up :rolleyes:

    all i know is that dist. have the cap and rotor and usually go bad and can be slightly off. coil packs are more accurate and i believe can send a bigger spark. Performance wise, i have no clue.

    Like was said earlier, the coil packs arem more reliable and a fair bit more accurate. I imagine if I got aftermarket coils, there would be stronger spark as well. It's an all around better system but not necessarily worthe doing all the work to convert.
