K, on my conversion, I used an older Mk 2 dizzy that has the centrifical and vacuum advance. I hooked up the positive wire from the dizzy to the positive wire from my coil, drawing from an ignition switched source of power. I hooked my negative dizzy to the negative coil, and one wire that feeds your tachometer. I can't remember what color it was, brown or white, I believe. I'm gonna look for it then get back.

thats up to you kidder. i have the whole set up so there is no need to fabricate anything. i also have a skimmed cylinder head for higher compression which adds performance. it now has 11-1 compession ratio. im also selling this. dizzy less ignition is good for more fine tuning. let me know bout my set up.either way its gonna be useless to me wen my turbo set up is done.

the cost mainly i looked into it deeply but everything that was needed and it would`v cum 2 1500 quid at least but i started looking on here then i started thinkin bout webbers and a while ago a frend of a frend took me 4 a spin in his nova gte wiv gsxr carbs on then that woz it i woz hooked! the next day i saw the carbs i got on ebay and its pretty much gone from there now but wiv the cash iv hav saved i think a shorter final drive and sum leda coilovers r on the cards

well you can get cheap throttle bodies and it will cost the same for making the manifold etc. its jus u need an ecu to run them, but u have the choice of turboing later on which is what im doing now.

If you want a rev limiter you will probably need to run an ignition box such as the MSD.

to be honest mate im only half way through my engine build due to weather, set backs and some last minute component decitions which means some of the main parts wont be here for a couple of months and even then im gona run it in on the std inj so i dont get any over/under fueling problems
so i wont be doing this for a while
