GM DIS install

Postby jeep45238 » Sat Feb 19, 2005 10:45 am

Well, apparently the HEI and DIS of GM uses the same code, so it should be able to operate both peices of hardware.

Now, this install would be on a turbocharged 1.9L Saturn I4 engine, OBD1.

Looking at the picture, I would think that the pick-up coil would be the crank sensor in my application, which has 2 wires, but unfortuantely, it doesn't say a positive or a negative in the picture.

Would I absolutely have to run the HEI modual to fire the coil packs? Since my application uses 2 coils, would I have to splice into the coils directly, or is there some way to use my original ignition modual to get the fire starting?

The way the crank sensor in a saturn works is there's a notch in the crank that triggers this magnetic sensor. Same idea as mounting a magnet and reciever on a crank pulley or flywheel.

Any suggestions on rigging this up for a GM DIS install, anybody?

Thanks!
Mike

If you look at the module in the pic you might note that one of the pickup terminals is marked "P" and the other is marked "N". :wink:

Beyond that I have no idea.
