I am looking at converting my '91 Petrol GQ Patrol (with points etc...) to Electronic Ignition in particular the Pirahana Electronic Ignition kit.

Has anyone had one of these installed in a similar year patrol? I'm basically wondering whether it's worth doing in regards to fuel ecomony, power etc... or is it hardly noticable. Any good or bad feedback would be much appreciated before I go and spend $300 for the kit, $80 change-over for the rotor arm and installation.Cheers,

keep your dizzy and spend some of the money you saved and get your dizzy re mapped.that involves pulling dizzy apart and changing some little springs inside and giving better spark through the rev range.mine is being done in a few weeks(been waiting 2mths)the guy who does them here is flat out(racing engine rebuilder) cost about $120 and includes a dyno tune before and after.i dont know where you are but if you go to an engine reconditioner and ask them about re mapping they should be able to point you in the right direction.

Totally agree, my current 60 series cruiser came with electronic ignition when I bought it via 1st owner, but my fathers unit had the dizzy reworked 2 years before he sold it, 344000 kms when it went and I am sure it had much more go than mine does now (255000 currently).
