This is an exchange program for vintage Ferrari 512 BB and 512 BBi cars. It swaps out the original ignition system, part number AEC104B ignition module and the BAE202B 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 104B 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. The RPM limit, advance timing curve and many other features can be programmed using a computer, tablet or smart phone. The AEC104B-7800 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.
