FAB9 has yet another great solution to your Miata performance problems. The factory ignition system is not awful, it just wasn’t intended for the performance that we have in mind for our little roadsters. This ignition system is one of the most complete and easy to install packages available. On top of that, it might be one of the most affordable routes to take!
Mazda Miata MX-5 1989-2004 Mazda Miata 1.8 and 1.6 engine 5 and 6 speed transmissions. This setup will convert your NA coil pack and NB wasted spark setups to an individual Coil On Plug.
NOTICE: THE 95.5 AND OLDER MIATA WILL REQUIRE THE USE OF A TACH ADAPTER ON THE STOCK ECU (NOT REQUIRED IF YOU HAVE ENGINE MANAGEMENT)
NOTICE: EARLY LINK ECU COMPATIBILITY ISSUES - Customers have reported module failure while using the LINK ECU.
NOTICE: HYDRA ECU is not compatible.
NOTICE: If you have a swapped engine, order the kit that matches the vehicle harness, not the engine!
Due to the number of variables, we cannot guarantee the compatibility of all aftermarket engine management systems. We also will not accept returns on Hardwire kits due to the nature of installation possibilities.
Why NOT TOYOTA COP?
As it turns out bench testing has been done to show that the Toyota Coils commonly found in many conversion kits aren't much stronger than the stock NB Miata Wasted-Spark setup. The dwell settings for the Toyota COP are not a very good match for the Miata factory ECU, they will not tolerate the factory dwell settings for long. With our external ignition module you don't have to worry about dwell tolerances, even on the 99-00 cars.
WHAT HOLDS THEM DOWN?:
Unlike the Toyota Coils these have the coil windings down the shaft and an external ignitor so they aren't top heavy, they simply need the correct diameter holes to press into, and a spark plug to attach to. The weather seal at the top steps up in size allowing a firm fit for both the NA/NB/NB2 (MSM) valve covers, making them a perfect match.
Need MORE SPARK?
This kit out of the box is not designed to support huge power numbers. It will support +/- 18PSI when paired with the included 4-Channel Coil Driver. If your setup requires more you can simply upgrade to the AEM Twin-Fire Ignition Module PN:30-2821. Our Pencil Coils paired with the AEM Twin-Fire result in a very serious 1000HP capable spark setup.
