LT1-to-LS1 Coil Conversion

Posted By: A94Z383 On: 01-02-2008 @ 09:55:42         Reply | Edit
Is the LT1-to-LS1 Coil Conversion kit worth the $400 they claim more powerful spark at higher rpm and a 2 stage rev-limiter with boost/nitrous retard all built in. Does anybody use this? What is your opinion? I have been considering it for a while, but $400 then I have to make something to mount it on and buy the coils, If it read it right...I would rather make one myself. anyone with a schematic for this kit?

If you are refering to the LT-1 coil conversion (LTCC) that Bob Bailey makes, then you cannot go wrong. If you haven't already, check out his website: http://www.bailey-eng.com/ for more information. The other alternative is the Delteq which is also a great system. Costwise, it works out to be about the same after all the parts are purchased. I use the LTCC and have found it to work flawlessly. The kit comes with every thing necessary except the coils and mounting brackets. The coils you can buy either new or used. The brackets you can purchase or make. There is no need for a schematic since all the necessary wiring comes with the kit. It is a true "plug & play" system. The question of being worth the cost is really relative. If you have the need for a stronger, more reliable spark and want to eliminate the "weak" or less reliable portion of the stock opti-spark, then it is certainly worth the cost in my opinion.

The LTCC is a bargain for that price. I've been running 8 LS1-style coils for more than 5 years, and it cost a lot more than that, because it is built around a MoTeC M48Pro aftermarket ECU. Its amazing that they can do for $400 what I spent many times that to accomplish. I use my setup with a 300-shot on a 500HP stroker. Buddy of mine used the 8 LS1 coils on his LT1, making 1,125HP, and then on a Gen 1 SBC he built to replace the LT1, making 1,350HP with over 20# of Vortech boost. They can supply the spark to anything you can mount them on.
