Yeah man, totally not the right kind of ignition for this setup.. I mean it does work, but not good enough for me haha. What you are hearing in the video is almost what it was doing before the new 2041 postcard and new pickup coil. I went with the better that treats has. And it did indeed help out a ton. But still having the "lean bog symptoms"
But before with old pietcard and pickup, spark would just cut out totally at high rpm..
I know I could slap points back on it and shred, but what's the fun in that if I dont have to dick with it for another week or so hahaha
