    i think it would be much easier to change curves than the normal ones.....but then again i have only changed curves about 3 times in 3 yrs so is it really needed ?

    that said i do prefer my advent over the stock cdi, it makes a big difference to throttle response.

    Im with you on that. I will find a curve that works, then leave it alone. I have this now so I am going to use it. Then I was wondering about the reliability of the Advent vs. an OEM ign.

    i am using the 94 curve

    83- stock
    94- good/safe
    59- better/almost as safe
    84- best/performance

    84 has too much timing in the mid range and you will toast your motor is you cruise for an extended period around 5000rpm....you can never ever tow with the 84 curve either.

    you will pick up some rpm as well so you may end up around 7100 or 7150...i forget the rpm difference bt there is one and thats where you really want to be, between 7100 and 7200.

    that said, I was 1mph faster with an oem cdi over the advent for reasons i have never been able to explain

    Note: looking at your curves, that looks like triple pipe curves not single pipe curves..you can get it reprogrammed tho

    Yes, before I bought it, I realized that I needed to get it re flashed with single pipe pump gas curves before I can run it.

    I always wanted to have one of these. Like Izzo says, don't know how many times I would change it, but just knowing you can when you want makes it cool.
