Perma-Tune announces a performance ignition upgrade for the Porsche 944 Turbo. The stock 944 Turbo ignition system is, in a way, a step backwards in performance from the earlier CDI type ignition systems used in the 911. Although the ignition timing map is controlled by an electronic fuel injection (EFI) system, the ignition itself is little better than a breaker points Kettering ignition system. For a turbo, a weak ignition system leaves much to be desired. Adding the Perma-Tune module to the EFI provides the fire power to take full advantage of the benefits of a turbo and an EFI system.
If you have done any other performance upgrades to the engine like custom exhaust, cold air intake or EFI chips, then adding the ignition upgrade will unlock even more power.
The 944TC906 is also a maintenance replacement part for the stock ignition coil which has become hard to find.
Installation can be done in less than an hour and only common hand tools are required. There are no holes to drill and no wires to cut and splice. The 944TC906 is a kit that includes everything you need for the installation. A mounting bracket is provided that is predrilled to fit the car. It is installed using stainless steel ties that secure it to the engine bay directly behind the front bumper. The module mounts to the bracket with sheet metal screws. The coil provided replaces the stock coil. The built in module wiring harness connects to the coil and the engine bay coil harness wires.
