A common problem that comes up here on TC is ignition setup. Much of the discussion devolves into "this works for me" without supporting data. These can be misleading and sometimes just wrong. What follows is some very helpful information about how ignition works that I have compiled from various sources and have found very useful.
Part of my point in posting this is to put into one place a good background piece that we can point folks to, as in "search for ignition 101". Some of this may be slightly duplicated, but again I am attempting to create a one-stop shop. So following in successive responses...
BTW if you have additional reference data to add feel free. Links to advance limiters would probably be a good addition for example.
