Thanks for sharing Eric.
It must be great to have them in there. ( nice to see them side by side. )

All the best Andrew.

Hi Eric

Looking back at your photos I noticed a bank of coils near plug, what are you using for them?

Hi Peter

Well spotted. The more modern solution would be coil on plug as modern petrol cars have. I went 1 generation earlier from American V8 with short HT leads.
This is coil per cylinder and part of my ECU being able to trim ignition to each individual cylinder. This is very useful with the VX where the airflow is un balanced.  I used VX/IE Cam covers which come with handy mounting lugs.

NB most Beta Owners will be absolutely fine with Wasted Spark ignition and batch fuel injection
