With the chokes, if the plug wires start leaking, nobody dies because the thing stalls out while crossing a 4 lane or in the fast lane of the interstate during rush hour.
Prayed so hard about this! God gets the credit if this turns out to be a good and useful thing. I'm not a fanatic, but seeing the look of panic in that woman who owns the 98 GC...
Anyway, its early and who knows if it will work long term? I make no guarantee about any of it, simply cause I don't know.
The mix of the ferrite/ferrous material might make a difference. Some engineeers say 31 mix is best for widespread suppression. Also placement. Lots of variables, you know?
I used RadioShack pn 273-105 for the dist. and pn 273-104 for the connectors to pcm. About $15 or so. Slide right up as close as possible to connectors. Slide close to dist. as possible. Shack gives no spec. for the mix that I can find. Simply tried these b/c I could eyeball them for size and didn't want to order from online comp. without trying first. Snap on, maybe some elec. tape to hold in place if moving too much. Thats it.
I set up to try this way on the 98 (thinking that the plug wires, rotor, and cap were probably bad-you should see them) to see how the chokes would react.
ZeeJay1997, your test and results were the tipoff. Chokes went on connectors (from what you guys posted?) that control most engine and trans. function. The choke on the dist. was b/c of its proximity to the plug wires/dist/coil/alt.
I checked with several manufacturers first to see that they wouldn't damage any components. I hope they are right. Seems lots of guys have been using these on fuel inj. wires and other places for years with good results.
ZeeJay, Coralman, Flyboy161, and all you guys get lots of props!!!!!!! Zee gets much credit for establishing a good base line with his ignition! Thanks for your patience for the comparison Zee.
Its still early, so I'm not overly convinced by any means. Don't want to jump gun.
