Chevy Performance Ignition Boxes - Fire Starter!

Poked, Prodded & Checked

Factory sparkers do a fair job of burning petrol, but when it comes to a hotter, yet more efficient burn, you'll need to enlist the aid of a performance aftermarket ignition. Factor in a high compression mill or increased cylinder pressure through a power adder, be it a supercharger or nitrous, and there's the increased possibility of blowing the spark out, leaving unspent fuel and potential energy to fall by the wayside.

Keep in mind that there's more to it than just power: Simply bolting on an ignition box isn't going to magically increase the seat-of-the-pants feel by any means; however, it'll certainly ensure that you're maximizing all of your available power, help increase fuel mileage-which is a benefit we can all take advantage of-and above all, improve throttle response to better promote reliable performance.

To help make your decision easier, we've listed six of the more popular entry-level boxes and we're getting straight to the point. We've gone ahead and listed the details, the price, and all available functions; now that the hard part is done, it's just a matter of picking the one that works for you.
