Pertronix Ignitor Kit for 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982 and 1983 5.0L Mustangs with Motorcraft Distributors.

Looking for an ignitor that offers a clean, clutter-free look in your engine compartment while increasing voltage and performance? Then, installing the Pertronix Ignitor Kit (FO-182) in your 1979-1983 5.0L Mustang with Motorcraft Distributors is an obvious choice! The Pertronix ignitor doubles the voltage to your spark plugs for increased horsepower, fuel economy and spark plug life.

The Ignitor installs quickly and is incredibly inconspicuous under your distributor cap. Since there is no "black-box" interfering with your engine bay's appearance, the ignitor has earned the reputation as the "stealth" ignition. 

Features and Benefits:
- Increased Horsepower and Fuel Economy
- Longer Spark Plug Life
- 2:1 Improvement Over "Points" in Current Fall Time
- Increased Coil Output 
- Rotating Cobalt Magnets Trigger Hall Effect Integrated Circuit
- Stable Timing—No Need for Adjustments

The ignitor has proven itself in various applications, from race cars to tractors, for over three decades. The ignitor features rotating cobalt magnets that trigger a Hall Effect integrated circuit, meaning there are no points to burn and no moving parts to wear out. You'll benefit from a 2:1 improvement over 'points' in current fall time for increased coil output. It replaces breaker points and troublesome factory electronic ignitions with a reliable, self-contained and maintenance-free electronic ignition system. For further durability, epoxy molding makes the module impervious to dirt, oil, grease and moisture.
