Beginner’s guide: Common types of ignition systems

Whether you drive for practical reasons, such as getting to and from work, or spend some of your time coaxing out every bit of performance for racing, it helps to have your engine operating at peak efficiency.

When it comes to upgrading your vehicle performance, few items provide more bang for the buck than dealing with engine issues. These enhancements, though, delve deeply into the complexities of the ICE, so the learning curve has some steepness to it.

When dealing with ignition systems, it helps to have some background. Your vehicle will start from one of these four methods:

  1. Conventional breaker-point or mechanical ignitions
  2. High energy or electrical ignitions
  3. Distributor less or waste spark ignitions
  4. Coil-on-plug ignitions

Once you have the basics down, you can then look for the Holley Sniper ignition system that supports your vehicle. For optimal performance, an electronic fuel injection system allows for a potent upgrade to your ignition system. With a simple plug-and-play installation system, you can upgrade quickly with these components. Each kit comes with the essential hardware for operation: CD ignition box, distributor and high-output coil. 

When paired with EFI, this ignition system improves idle stability, fuel efficiency and throttle response. It also allows for complete timing control adjustments.

Quality Fuel Injection Kits

Whether you drive for practical reasons, such as getting to and from work, or spend some of your time coaxing out every bit of performance for racing, it helps to have your engine operating at peak efficiency. Any time you have to deal with stalls, rough idling and reduced fuel economy, you can experience unnecessary frustrations. Superior fuel injection kits allow you to upgrade with aftermarket parts designed to improve performance.

As with ignition systems, fuel injection systems deal with complicated factors. Even seasoned amateur mechanics can struggle with the options for brands, prices, warranties and capabilities of these systems, so relying on professional advice just makes sense. Since this purchase represents a significant outlay of cash, you want to do the necessary research and have your questions answered.

The right aftermarket fuel injection system allows you to select the specific flow rate and size injector you need to properly feed your engine. Before making a final decision, consult with experts and look into the following questions:

  • How does a fuel injection system work?
  • What do aftermarket fuel injectors do?
  • How do you install the system?
  • How do you maintain the system?

Knowing this information will allow you to make the most of your upgrades. It will lead to enhanced performance and improved longevity of parts.

Trusted Brands

When in doubt, it always pays to go with a brand you trust or that has a strong reputation in the industry. When it comes to ignition systems, fuel injection components and engine upgrades, look for established brands such as JEGS, FAST, Edelbrock, BD Diesel, Delphi, Holley Sniper and Ford Performance.

The SBC Holley Sniper is a master kit that comes with all of the hardware to upgrade your fuel injection system. Once you have installed the item, you gain the benefits of increased fuel economy and added horsepower, as well as more receptive performance with smoother idles and quicker starts.
