Post '66 Corvair Corsa Turbo EDIS Ignition upgrade 
I've spent the last couple of months replacing my stock '66 Turbo ignition with a system which will allow me to load custom ignition timing maps. These maps will control the ignition timing based on manifold pressure and RPMs. After looking at a few options for this capability, I ended up installing a Ford EDIS-6 ignition coupled to a MegaJolt/E MK2 engine controller. I've just completed this project and I hope to get my engine back into my Corsa in time for the Corvair SpringFest next weekend in Helen, GA. We'll see. In any case, I also documented all of my work in a white paper in case any of you are interested in how this project progressed.

You can find my white paper here (43 MB): http://www.cincotek.com/Corvair/Corvair%20EDIS%20Ignition%20Conversion.pdf . If you save the PDF file to your computer and view it from there the web links within the file to other websites will work. For some reason they don't seem to work if you read the file from your browser..

I also made a short movie of my last functional test of the conversion when I started the engine up for the first time with all of the components hooked up. It's short, about 7 minutes...

Fantastic! thank you for sharing. Most Corvair installs are fascinating and also very visually appealing - we love that car!
