    R&D GPR Ignition

    Is the R&D 12r ignition the same curves as an Advent ?

    Does anyone have any idea why the R&D intructions say you cant use a GelCell battery with one ?

    I havent bought it yet but I am considering one.

    They are totally different than the advent. I had one for a while on my 00 boat. It has the same timing curves for all 3 cylinders unlike the advent. Make sure you install an inline fuse in the power wire circuit or you can cause a wiring melt down.

    At least it never left me stranded on the water like the advent did.

    The Advent retards the timing a bit on #3 cylinder, which is a good thing. Advent will also program any curve you like into it for like $50, as well as it has 4 curves you can select with the flick of a switch. I understand that Advent had a bad batch of chips which brought on quality problems but they have since found the good chips and the quality is back. I was one of the "lucky" ones that got a bad one but they were awesome about standing behind it and replacing with a brand new unit.
