Model 930906 Euro Spec Ignition Module

This is a replacement part for vintage Porsche 930 Turbo European specification cars. This module was also used on many Porsche factory race cars, Lotus cars and other vehicles of the same era. It swaps out the original ignition module that has become very rare with a plug compatible module. The housing is the same as used for the Perma-Tune Porsche Turbo US specification modules and will still bolt up to the existing mounting points in the engine bay. No core exchange is required.

The 930906 is a Gen 6 Perma-Tune and makes diagnostics easier by providing 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.

Model 931906 Euro Spec Core Exchange Ignition Module

This is a core exchange part for vintage Porsche 930 Turbo European specification cars. This module was also used on many Porsche factory race cars, Lotus cars and other vehicles of the same era. The original core must be sent to Perma-Tune for rebuilding with the Gen 6 Perma-Tune electronics.

The 931906 is a Gen 6 Perma-Tune and makes diagnostics easier by providing 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.

911SC906 Ignition Module

Introducing the sixth-generation Perma-Tune ignition module tailored specifically for Porsche 930 3.3 L Turbo US specification vehicles utilizing the six-pin ignition module system. This ignition module 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 US Spec 930 Turbo offers two distinct models: the Model 911SC906 Premium ignition module and the 911SC706 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.
