Hi,

I have just inherited a project. It is a 3.5L V12 engine and it currently has dual CDI-8 ignition controllers and an M800 ECU. The wiring is a mess so I am going through it and cleaning it up before I proceed.

I am wondering if anyone has experience with a dual CDI-8 setup and knows the proper way to wire it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

There could be a more SIMPLE method.

Would you be willing to install 12 IGN-1A coils with internal drivers ?
Thus NO CDI requirement.

Oh, how I would love to. The problem I have is that I inherited this mess from someone else who really wasn't qualified to be driving, much less working on cars.

He blew the budget and I have to pickup the pieces. I couldn't find any information on the Motec website about this.

As far as I know Motec CDI is manufactured by M&W, so you should be able to find pinouts on the Motec site or by contacting M&W

I run a twin M&W CDI system with an M600 motec ECU. works a treat

Cheers

Hugh

What engine is this? If it's a non-60? bank angle, that might deserve some wiring contemplation.

Sorry for the delay, I just saw this. It's a 3.5 liter quad-turbo V12 from a Bugatti EB110.

I got wiring assistance from Motec. Hopefully it will be fired Monday. It's been a long process, there was a lot of work to be done.
