Post Gonna tinker with the spark

Well, I know im running rich but since im too cheap to buy a fuel computer I decided something different. I figured, what would be the next best thing to leaning the fuel mixture? MORE ENERGY!!

So, heres the plan...and i'll update you all later. I'll take my stock system (Ignition coil, spark plug wires, and spark plugs) and measure the energy delivered at the plug. Thennnnnnn, change the winding ratio in the coil to improve energy output. Thennnnn, throw in some low resistance wires. Thennnn, since I can get them in abundance, I will remove the resistors from some Champion (and then switch to NGK once my test is complete) plugs and replace them with springs. Thennnnn, I can re-test the system and see what kind of energy I have now.

This will burn plugs up faster but should burn the fuel more efficiently. Im anxious to see if A. The nasty egg smell goes away, B. Smoother acceleration (some stumbling now...kinda like turbo lag), C. Better gas mileage.

They have been telling me that I need to spend more time in the lab here at work so what the heck, work on my car. Subaru is a customer of ours so its even official work business.....sort of

Anyone else try removing resistance between the coil and plug and have any data backing it up?

Oh, if I get real fancy, I might install a little multi-spark system early next year too. Curiousity destroys engines
