X1/9 Lumenition Performance Optronic Ignition

£291.60 (£243.00 ex VAT)

Lumenition Lumenition Optronic Ignition is an electronic ignition conversion to replace existing contact breaker points and condenser. The advantage of the Lumenition system is that it contains no wearing parts, requires no adjustment or maintenance during service and once ignition timing is set it will remain permanently in tune.

With all the reliability of the Standard Optronic ignition, the Performance system adds the Lumenition constant energy coil, which gives a fully saturated spark far higher up the engine rev range than possible with a standard coil.

The instant benefits of all Optronic systems are:
  • No contact breakers or condensers;
  • Easier starting and higher revving engines;
  • Faster, smoother acceleration;
  • Reduced exhaust emissions;
  • Better fuel economy;
In addition the Performance Optronic electronic ignition offers:
  • High output constant energy ignition coil electronically matched to power module;
  • Microcircuit control of the coil current giving optimum performance across speed and voltage range, ensuring maximum coil spark energy;
  • Variable dwell angle, optimising energy use to prevent low speed coil overheating;
  • Automatic switch off on engine stop, preventing coil damage if ignition is left on;
The Performance Optronic system is ideal for modified or race or rally cars. It can only be used with unballasted low resistance electronic ignition coils (i.e. primary resistance of ~0.75 ohms) such as the supplied constant energy type. It is not suitable for use with a replacement dry coil such as SV009 or an original fitment standard resistance coil.

The power module can be mounted on the outside of the louvered divider panel under the engine lid right hand side cover. However, if preferred, mounting bracket SV043 is available to avoid additional mounting holes in the bodywork.

Important: Fully suppressed ignition leads, such as Silicone types, MUST be used with this system. Copper leads or leads using just suppressed caps are NOT suitable.

NOTE: The performance power module is supplied with constant energy coil, optical switch and cabling, but requires a fitting kit for your specific distributor type, sold separately. See SV038 for Marelli S135 or SV039 for Marelli S178.

Also applicable to Lancia Beta Scorpion and Montecarlo S1, but requires a fitting kit for your specific distributor type, sold separately. See SV301 for Marelli S144.
