Due to overwhelming demand Turbocharged fuel injection is coming. Testing will start August 2019 and production of units are scheduled for summer 2020 after hot and cold weather cycle testing have been completed. Electronic Spark knock reduction is planned and will use the factory carb as the throttle body which will limit the amount of boost as GM engineers intended.
No other Corvair engine deserves EFI more than the turbocharged models due to start up (even with a good carb) and over running after the system is a few miles from a tune up. We will be able to retard the spark electronically based on Load, RPM and most importantly temp (air charge and engine). This will allow the turbocharged engine to run “care free” under normal conditions. A fuel only solution is planned for those with factory retard distributor using the Pertronix or factory points. It will use the standard crank trigger for RPM and control input.
An addd-on spark knock reduction is planned.
Ignition: We offer 3 types of Ignition for the turbocharged kit:
b. *Pertronix/Factory ignition Distributor (Fuel only Solution)
c. Modified Corvair Distributor w/VAG Logic Coil
d. GM Logic DIS Coil
