Elite 2500 ignition wiring

Postby PJR310 » Thu Mar 22, 2018 5:40 pm

I have SAGEM coil-on-plug (2-wire), originally run straight from the OEM Bosch ECU.
Upgrading to Elite 2500 (premium harness) I thought i could run the IGN trigger from the Elite 2500 straight to each coil-on-plug. But i read a warning text about them requiring a "ignition module" between? Is that required or can i run the coils direct?

Most 2 wire coils are "dumb" coils, meaning they do not have an ignitor built in. You will need some kind of external ignition amplifier to control them.

Thanks, yes its hard to find any info on these SAGEMs but i figured out they wont work without igniters. I am looking to replace them with VAG BERU 115R COP with built in igniter.
