Hooker, Flowmaster, and Pertronix make up the the brew for our exhaust and ignition part of the power parts bolt-on.
No matter how tired the engine, it can always benefit from more intense and precise ignition spark and better flowing exhaust.
That's why our ignition and exhaust components for our Day 2 Power bolt-ons for little blue coupe are quality parts from Hooker, Flowmaster, and Pertronix.
On the ignition side, we're keeping the stock distributor in lace for now since it seems to be reasonably tight and functioning well, but we're ditching the points and condenser (which has already been a big source of trouble) for Pertronix's drop-in Ignitor III electronic ignition module, their Flame Thrower III canister coil, and their 7mm 'Stock Look' spark plug wires. Those stock looking wires are actually high performance, low resistance parts that will paired with the Flame Thrower coil's 45,000 volts will give our engine all the ignition power it can use and then some. Plus, the Ignitor III module offers a lot of cool built-in features, such as;
• multiple sparks throughout the entire rpm range.
• Integrated digital rev limiter with LED feedback for precise
• memory safe function stores settings eliminating unintended
• adaptive dwell maintains peak energy throughout the entire rpm
range, reducing misfires while improving engine performance.
• peak current level is reached just prior to spark for maximum
energy without the heat build-up, increasing coil performance
• adjusts spark timing at higher rpm to compensate for the
inherent electronic delay.
• senses start-up and increases energy for quicker, easier starting.
• thermal clad surface mount construction for superior reliability.
• built-in reverse polarity and over current protection shuts down the
system, preventing component damage
Ignition is great, but you have to be able to get those spent exhaust gases out, so we went with a set of Hooker full-length headers with a ceramic coat to scavenge out the air and keep the underhood temperatures under control. Behind that will be Flowmaster's American Thunder 2.5-inch mandrel bent exhaust which will take the place of a very rusty and poorly constructed restrictive dual exhaust system. Now anything the 289 burns will exit as efficiently as possible- with the added benefit of sounding great while doing so!
