This is an exchange program for vintage Ferrari 308 Dino, 308 GTB and 308GTB4 . It swaps out the original ignition system, part number AEC103A ignition module and the BAE201 ignition coil that are no longer available. In order to retain concourse points, the original shell and hardware are used in the construction using state-of-the-art electronics to replace the original internal electronic components. The Perma-Tune 103A is CNC machined and then hand assembled by a master technician so that every part in the unit is original to the car.
Engine performance is enhanced by multiple spark operation and provides fire power even at very high RPM and provides a 6,600 RPM limit that the original part did not have. The RPM limit, advance timing curve and many other features can be programmed using a computer, tablet or smart phone. The AEC103A comes preprogrammed for this car so programming changes are optional. Use the Perma-Tune Smart Wire for USB or Bluetooth to enable program changes. This is especially useful to compensate for distributor problems.
The Gen 5 Perma-Tune makes diagnostics easier by providing onboard diagnostics and runs diagnoses programs automatically that are displayed by two colored LED function lights. These LED lights assist in diagnosing both the vehicle and the ignition module. There are three self-resetting fuses that assist in troubleshooting while protecting your Perma-Tune from damage. These features are hidden underneath the ignition module and are only viewable when needed so they do not spoil the original look of the part. Refer to the Diagnostics section of this web site for more information about the diagnostics system.
