I have a 1995 4cyl auto. I heard that an Ignition system would do good on my car. What are your guys opinions on this?

do you have an external coil? if not, its gonna be hard to do anything upwards of wires. if you do, then you could pop a better coil on, but according to MX6 BOY Jr. (if memory serves), the ignition is already good enought to the point where any "mods" you do wont provide a gain...

It is doubtful that you will notice much difference, especially on a stock engine. The cars that will notice the difference are the ones that are replacing a points type system, but those were fased out years and years ago...

I would save this as one of the last mods you do; like when you have everything else done and are looking for something else to modify, then look into this. But for now save the money and use it elsewhere.

Could be a problem but...

The ATXs have the external coil... the MTXs have the internal coil (93-94, that is).

there is a 6 pin connector on the MTX disty that the 93-94 ATX disty lacks. im not really sure why mazda did this but it could pose a problem... but im not really sure. just a thought. maybe Mike 94PGT, the PCM god, can provide us with some oh-so-valuable knowledge...

well if that could cause a problem wouldnt using the ignition system for the atx be the solution seeing as the ignition is not at all touched by the tranny swap

well both the 6-pin connector and the tranny are connected to the PCM... so they could be touching... im not sure...

that statement was made meaning that nothing from the ignition is changed while performing the swap .

well if it doesnt work, thatll be why... im pretty sure the PCM is already calibrated to handle an MTX. maybe its just for timing reasons and... never mind... tell us how it goes...

I agree, Stock wires are more than adequet. Unless your after asthetics don't bother changing them till they are clapped...
