Default Re: My official testing of several different aftermarket CDIs

Vr been following this site for a while but only recently joined.the cdi got my attention.as this is something i positively have experienced i had to post on it.Fred knows the name procustom.autoworks an i got motor an cdi 3wks apart so take my word as true.i took his advice from end to end an i don't think it can possibly get any better. He is the one who out the cdi on me.I've found him to be straight up when it comes to this stuff even if its Not his product.

I don't wan't to sound uneducated about TDC and spark but if the engine fires before TDC by any percentage one the fuel is not fully compressed two the engine will without any doubt fail much earlier than id would firing a zero degrees or precise TDC. Where is the increase of power by firing a mixture before it completely compressed? I'm not an engineer but if I had to rely on the basis my engine would fire at top dead or not at all if it would be so pleased to make sense of doing for me..

True YesImLDS... But I supported my claim with actual evidence.
My biggest gripes with Fred & Dan over all these years is that they've made many claims of their products being far superior to their competitons (& they've always refused the requests to show any testing or proof of it).

I didn't do these tests to bash Dan (or Fred); I did these tests solely because I want the best CDI possible on my new race bike, & there's ZERO information anywhere about any of them!

If I find that the HDL (or any other CDI) is truely even just a hair better than the rest?, you'll read about it in my future posts & you'll see it on my race bike next Saturday!

Ignitions needing to fire before top dead center is very common... (the faster the engine goes, the earlier you need to 'light the match' to make the boom. (But lighting it too soon will kill the engine).

Exactly! Because in most cases you have to pre-ignite due to the fact that by the time the explosion reaches the piston itself it'll then be at or just after TDC.

OK I will ask my question again. Are these fixed values or is there a variable curve? If variable where does it began
