GEN 6, 2021 TO PRESENT

The Gen 6 product line has expanded to include basic ignition modules, premium modules, coils and distributors for more vintage cars than ever before.

IGNITION MODULES

The sixth generation Perma-Tune ignition module is a refinement of the Gen 5 module in technology in both functionality and appearance. The sand cast aluminum housing of the previous generation is replaced with a smooth, die cast housing that is more consistent with the smooth look of the original housing. Technologically, the circuit board has updated hardware and firmware that makes it forward compatible with plasma spark plugs. Functionally, the diagnostic LEDs have been moved to the connector so that they can be viewed using a mirror without having to dismount the module from the relay panel. The overload protectors have been moved to the back side of the connector where they are more accessible yet hidden from view when the module is installed on the car.

The most significant new feature of the Gen 6 Perma-Tune module is its compatibility with cold plasma spark plugs which are destined to become commercially available. These spark plugs are also known as non-resistive plasma spark plugs, transient discharge spark plugs or non-thermal nano pulse discharge spark plugs. All Gen 6 Premium ignition modules have the capability to function with either conventional spark plugs or plasma spark plugs. The plasma function can be turned on with a software setting using the Perma-Tune USB Smart Wire, Bluetooth Smart Wire or by sending your module to the factory for a free software setting change. Until plasma spark plugs become commercially available, we recommend using the stock spark plugs for your particular engine. We do not recommend using platinum spark plugs with the Perma-Tune module. High performance engines show the most horsepower gains using the stock Porsche Turbo multiple ground spark plugs.

The advantages of non-thermal nano second discharge plasma ignition have been well documented in many scientific papers including those written by the inventor of the Gen 6 Perma-Tune. Much of the horsepower gains of this technology are due to the ability to retard ignition timing as the result of faster flame front propagation. The ability to retard ignition timing reclaims horsepower that would otherwise be absorbed by pumping losses and reduces the formation of NOx at the same time. Engines equipped with nano pulse discharge ignition can tolerate leaner fuel mixtures and a wider range of fuel formulations.

Most significantly for vintage car enthusiasts, nano pulse discharge ignition will allow your car to remain street legal far into the future while continuing to deliver the thrill of a high performance engine.

IGNITION DISTRIBUTORS

Perma-Tune has created replacement ignition distributors for many high end European cars that look original and have bespoke harnesses that allow for plug and play installation. It is easy to program the RPM limit, mechanical advance timing, and manifold pressure ignition timing using a free app on your phone. You can immobilize your car with your phone. You can create custom engine settings like, valet mode, pump gas mode, race fuel mode and share engine programs with other cars. Scroll down for installation, diagnostics and use guides.

Cube Ignition Module

The Cube ignition module is intended to disguise itself as an old school electrical part so as not to look conspicuous under the hood of a car that was built before electronics existed. It has the same electronics as the Gen 6 Premium Perma-Tune ignition modules with the added ability to be configured for use with virtually any engine. There are Cube modules that are universal to vintage engines and Cube modules that have been configured for specific cars. Cube modules can be added to bespoke ignition distributor kits to easily upgrade to high performance ignition on cars that did not originally have electronic ignition.
