Description

The IGN1A Smart Coil by AMP EFI requires no CDI Ignition Module to produce 103 mJ per spark, with a longer spark duration (2.9 ms) than what you’d see with a capacitive discharge. They are the same monster coils used in Street Outlaws No Prep Kings contender, ‘The Hulk!’

Each IGN1A Smart Coil is manufactured in the USA with a 19 amp IGBT ignitor built in and can be driven with a 5 volt logic level output – an MS3X or MS3-Pro will run them directly (set spark output to going high), and we recommend a 270 to 330 ohm pullup if you’re building a MegaSquirt 1 or MegaSquirt 2 to drive them and can fully charge with as low as 2.5 ms of dwell. Normally, you’d use them for a distributorless ignition as a coil per plug application, however they can be fired sequentially or every crank revolution (wasted spark coil per plug). If used as a single coil with a distributor, you may need to run a bit less dwell to prevent heat buildup from being an issue.  Maximum recommended duty cycle is 40%. Requires HEI-type plug wire ends/ boots.

Plugs are sold separately.  We offer either a 4 foot long flying lead pigtail or a pin and connector kit.

Here is the connector pinout:

A – Ignition signal from ECU
B – Logic ground, connect to ECU ground
C – Spark wire ground, connect to cylinder head
D – Power ground, connect to battery negative
E – 12 volt power

The coil dwell starts when a 5 volt signal is applied to pin A and the coil fires when the voltage drops to zero. The signal is similar to an LSx coil, although it does need a bit more current to trigger.

Smart Coil specs:

Minimum Output Voltage  (no load, at recommended dwell): 40,000 volts
Maximum Output Voltage: up to 81,000 volts (+/- 10%)
Output energy: 103 mJ
Spark duration: 2.9 ms
Primary resistance: 0.5 ohms (not directly measurable)
Primary inductance: 4.8 mH (not directly measurable)
Secondary resistance: 8,500 ohms
Secondary inductance: 22.5 H
Turns ratio: 71.1
Maximum current: 19 amps
Maximum battery voltage: 17 volts
Nominal dwell: 3.0 ms

Excessive dwell or duty cycle may cause meltdown.  As with any race coil, the manufacturer does not provide a warranty.

What is the pinout for this coil?

Here is the connector pinout:

A – Ignition signal from ECU
B – Logic ground, connect to ECU sensor ground
C – Spark wire ground, connect to cylinder head
D – Power ground, connect to battery negative
E – 12 volt power

Do you have a wiring diagram?

    It depends on which Haltech ECU we're dealing with, but if your ECU supports Haltech's HT-020114 coils, you'd configure it the same way for our IGN-1As.

    We currently don't have a complete Miata-specific wiring diagram - please contact our tech support team with details of what sort of Miata you are installing these on, and we can go over the wiring in more detail.

    We've had these coils used on methanol fueled engines running 40 psi of boost in the same RPM range; for a naturally aspirated build, you'll have no trouble as long as this is a four stroke.

    Yes, pricing is for one coil.

    Using these with our drop on harness would require making your own coil subharnesses from the 7 pin connector to the coils. So it's not a direct plug in, but it can be done.

    This would work reasonably well if the engine is not particularly high winding. Spark energy will start to drop off above 5000 RPM.

    The battery negative is the best point for noise suppression. Frame grounds can be affected by rust and other issues.

    I would not recommend using this coil for forced induction distributor based applications. The duty cycle recommendations mean it will have less spark energy at high RPM compared to running a set of six of these coils or using a CDI type ignition.
