|WeaponX, knows what it takes to optimize an ignition system. Time after time, customers call WeaponX to understand how to get the most out of their engines, especially customers looking for a proven aftermarket alternative when used in a stand alone EFI application. WeaponX is not a marketing company, we are an engineering firm that develops, designs, produces and fully understands our performance ignition components. WeaponX knows the real performance parameters of our product and we know what it takes to build a performance ignition system.
So just what are the differences? For one, WeaponX knows how to optimize and mate our ignition coils to all ECU's for optimal voltage and performance.
WeaponX also takes a ground up approach to our performance ignition coils. Take a look at these OEM examples which show a couple of the most common ignition coils. Here we can see how the most common ignition coils connect to the spark plug. 99% of all OEM ignition coils use a wire connection between the ignition coil and the spark plug, and is likely to be in your engine as well. Notice the difference between the WeaponX design and others.
While competitors typically copy the OEM design, if possible, WeaponX starts from the ground up by optimizing the position of the ignition components, removing unessesary wires and interconnects to provide a direct energy path to the spark plug. In the examples shown you can see what many people refer to as "coil on plug" units. In the above Dodge and Ford examples, these coil on plug units are actually coil NEAR plug units because of the poor conducting metal spring interconnects. Essentially these are poorly connected ignition wires placed between the ignition coil and the spark plug.
These interconnects connect loosely to the spark plug, and to the ignition coil creating resistance in the circuit. These resistances become a big problem at high voltage levels reducing ignition current and energy at the spark gap, and reduce the reliabillity of the ignition events due to added resistance.
WeaponX removes these high resistance paths by creating a high performance, direct connection from the power stage of the ignition coil to the terminal of the spark plug using a highly secure, highly conductive CNC profiled connector which connects directly to the power output stage of the ignition coil.
This connector also locks the ignition coil into place removing the need to bolt the ignition coil into place.
