911906 Ignition Module

Introducing the sixth-generation Perma-Tune ignition module tailored specifically for the early 911 and the factory 914 six cylinder car. The three pin ignition module is a contributing factor in making the  914/6  a revolutionary race car. It serves as a seamless direct bolt-up, plug-and-play replacement, requiring no modifications to the vehicle, including retaining the original copper core spark plug wires.

While maintaining a virtually identical appearance to the Bosch counterpart, this ignition module encapsulates the latest ignition technology. With its multiple spark operation, it ensures effortless starts, delivering ample firepower to ignite even the most aggressive race car engines.

Take your pick: Basic or Premium.

The Gen 6 Perma-Tune for the 911 offers two distinct models: the Model 911906 Premium ignition module and the 911706 Basic ignition module. Let’s delve into their characteristics:

The Basic model is precisely that – basic. It performs the same functions as the analog modules of yesteryears. For the average street car, this may suffice, providing an affordable alternative to the Premium model. However, don’t mistake its simplicity for lack of performance; it’s still a high-performance component, ideal for racing venues that prohibit programmable digital ignition systems. Sporting a smooth, original-looking housing, it’s a perfect fit for those seeking simplicity without compromising performance.

On the other hand, the Premium ignition module boasts a sleek, matte finish reminiscent of the original aluminum die-cast part. Setting it apart is its enhanced diagnostic capabilities, featuring onboard diagnostics showcased by two colored LED function lights. The blue LED serves as a power indicator, aiding in diagnosing vehicle power issues, while the red LED functions as a strobe light, flashing with each coil firing akin to a timing light. This feature proves invaluable in identifying intermittent engine misfires stemming from wiring or distributor issues. Conveniently mounted in the harness electrical connector, these LED function lights can be viewed using a mirror when the module is powered up. Moreover, three self-resetting overload protectors are discreetly housed behind the connector, facilitating troubleshooting while safeguarding your car wiring and Perma-Tune from potential damage.

SC010 “Black” Ignition Coil

The Perma-Tune Black Ignition Coil is designed to complement all Perma-Tune modules, ensuring peak performance and durability for your ignition system. With its period-correct appearance featuring a brown top and black body, it seamlessly integrates with all Porsche engines from the 356 to the 930, securely fitting onto the original mounting bracket and wiring harness.

Engineered to withstand the demands of vintage car engines, this ignition coil boasts exceptional ruggedness, capable of enduring heat and vibration with ease. Double seals ensure that the dielectric oil remains securely contained within the coil, preventing any leaks. Additionally, the reinforced high-voltage tower resists arcing while still accommodating the original spark plug wire boot. Internally, the coil is engineered to resist deterioration, promising a long service life.

As a crucial element of the ignition system, the ignition coil functions as a transformer, effectively amplifying the input voltage. With the high-performance Perma-Tune coil, an input voltage of 400 Volts from a Perma-Tune module yields an impressive output of 40,000 Volts.

When replacing a failed Bosch ignition module with a Perma-Tune module, it’s highly recommended to replace the coil simultaneously. Over time, coils commonly degrade, increasing the risk of internal short circuits. This deterioration can lead to the diversion of high-voltage power intended for the spark plugs back to the low-voltage section of the coil, potentially damaging the ignition module.

Based on over 50 years of Porsche experience, we’ve observed that ignition module failures are often caused by defective coils that short circuit internally. Simply replacing the module without also replacing the coil can result in damage to the new module.

For optimal compatibility and performance, it’s recommended to use the Perma-Tune coil exclusively with the Perma-Tune module, avoiding mixing with other brands of ignition modules. Trust in Perma-Tune for reliable ignition solutions tailored to your Porsche’s needs.

Say goodbye to complex wiring – the built-in electrical harness with original equipment compatible connectors ensures effortless plug-and-play installation. Simply plug in the distributor harness wires to the existing power and tachometer wires, plug the three-pin connector into the Perma-Tune module, and connect the harness to the coil and ground – it’s as simple as that! Bid adieu to brittle, deteriorating ignition primary wire and the problems it brings.

Crafted with the same attention to detail as the original wiring, the Perma-Tune 91426 distributor harness maintains that factory-original look while solving common engine misfire issues caused by the infamous engine bay ignition wiring.

But this distributor isn’t just about aesthetics – it’s packed with performance-enhancing features. Setting static timing is a breeze with the built-in trigger point LED, and preloaded timing curves align seamlessly with factory specs. Say goodbye to the old-fashioned distributor vacuum can and hello to a modern Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor, fully programmable for vacuum, boost, advance, and retard functions. And when it comes to timing, customize mechanical, vacuum, and boost curves effortlessly from your phone – you can even lock the engine!
