Made to look like an old school electrical relay, it blends right into the engine bay of any early Mercedes Benz Roadster or Coupe.
NO CRIMPS, NO MESS, NO HEADACHES
Plug and play features eliminate the need for wire crimps and complicated wiring diagrams. Wires are cut and stripped, then inserted into the wire bus for a secure, plug in connection without the need for special tools or wire crimps.
Simple, four wire installation. There is no need to interpret complicated wiring diagrams, the terminals are clearly marked so you know exactly where each wire goes.
NO DIALS, NO SWITCHES, NO PROBLEMS
Installation is easy. There are no dials to turn, no switches to set and no chips to plug in. The MB3906 Perma-Tune comes to you pre programmed and ready to be installed on your Mercedes Benz 8 cylinder engine. You can always customize the module later using your wireless device to make secure, reliable configuration changes through the built in Bluetooth connection. You can program in the advance curve so that the distributor mechanical advance mechanism can be locked and add multiple strike ignition to aid starting or increase the power output to reduce spark plug fouling. All using free software downloaded from the internet. Don’t want to do any programming? No problem. Programming services are available by sending your Perma-Tune to the factory or have the program customized for you remotely by a factory technician using your computer.
STRONG, YET FORGIVING
The Perma-Tune ignition module features on board diagnostics to help you install the module. The built in strobe light can help you check your ignition timing. It also has self resetting overload protection so there are no fuses to replace.
Use any kind of distributor you have. The Points distributor connection will work with breaker points, the original ignition module or any aftermarket distributor. Use the Magnetic distributor connection to use any breakerless magnetic Bosch distributor of the era.
