Got 12 volts?

One thing that I found out over at my other favorite car site; Pertronix like a full 12v supply. We have found out that there is considerable less voltage if you use the wire at the coil.
I have yet to wire mine to a full 12v, but I have a friend with a 1968 428CJ car that picked up a full 1/2 second in the quarter, by just doing this simple change.

One thing to point out, this is for a Cougar XR7 and they have a factory tachometer. I am not positive or not if the tachometer wiring causes a voltage drop because of the resistance wire or not.

Check if your positive 12v wire is giving a full 12v when cranking.
