10037376 Change-Over Switch      
Make your race car's ignition "failsafe" with this change-over switch. In the event of an ignition malfunction, the driver can change to a back-up amplifier box by simply flipping this switch. Installation is easy with weather-pack terminals.   Small Image
Technical Notes: This switch requires two ignition amplifiers and two rev limiters.

10037378 Heavy-Duty Ignition Control      
This amplifier is the heart of the GM Performance Parts heavy-duty ignition system. It is engineered to meet the spark requirements of four-cylinder, six-cylinder, and eight-cylinder racing engines. This sophisticated capacitive discharge ignition has multi-spark capabilities, producing a series of sparks to ensure complete combustion under all operating conditions. The rugged control box has special internal bracing and rubber shock mounts to withstand vibration. A special connector is provided for GM Performance Parts rev limiter P/N 10037379.   Small Image
Technical Notes: This ignition control has an operating range up to 10,000 rpm with a V8 engine. Its multi-spark duration is 200 of crankshaft rotation, and its maximum secondary output with coil P/N 10037380 is 45,000 volts. This amplifier draws 10 amperes at 10,000 rpm. Use with GM heavy-duty electronic distributors P/N 10134355, 10051133-34, 10037373, and 25500149. Do not use with production HEI system.

10037379 Rev Limiter      
The GM Performance Parts rpm control protects expensive engines from damage caused by missed shifts and broken drivetrains. This "soft touch" rev limiter's advanced computer circuitry cuts the spark to one cylinder at a time, then fires the cylinder on the next cycle. This smooth rev-limiting feature eliminates backfires and engine damage. The limiter is calibrated for four, six, and eight-cylinder engines with a plug-in module. The maximum engine speed is also set with plug-in "chips;" three modules (6000, 7000, and 8000 rpm) are included. Additional modules are listed below.   Small Image
Technical Notes: The chips for 6 and 8 cylinders are included in this kit. No chip is required when using it with a 4-cylinder application.

10037380 Heavy-Duty Ignition Coil      
This oil-filled coil has been specially designed for the GM Performance Parts ignition control. The turns ratio of its windings maximizes ignition voltage. Its alkyd top prevents arcing between the terminals, and its metal cannister provides dependable service under all conditions.   Small Image
Technical Notes: This coil has a 100:1 turns ratio and a maximum output voltage of 45,000 volts. It has .7 ohms primary resistance and 10,500 ohms secondary resistance. Use with amplifier P/N 10037378.
