OEM Ignition

True high-performance ignition components are not available at your local car parts store. Only knowledgeable companies, such as Vivid Racing can provide high-performance spark plugs and spark plug wires. We are an authority in the performance components sector because of our background. Plugs and wires are examples of ignition components. If you have any questions or can't locate what you're looking for, add a set of spark plugs and plug wires to your order. Please contact us. We'll assist you and get you started on the right track. We can also assist you with queries about ignition amplifiers and plasma boosters.

What does the ignition system do?

The ignition system ignites the air/fuel combination in the combustion chambers by providing a spark. The spark must be strong and precisely timed for all operating circumstances for best performance and fuel mileage, as well as low emissions. There are electronic distributor ignition systems and mechanical-breaker point, distributor ignition systems, and Coil-On-Plug (COP) ignition systems, but we can provide replacements for any of them.

Spark Plug, what is it?

The most often maintained component in the ignition system is the spark plug. A spark plug comprised a core electrode encased in an insulator and encased in a steel shell. From the bottom of the shell, a side electrode curves outwards toward the central electrode. The spark plug can be inserted into the combustion chamber since the shell is threaded. A spark leaps the space between the center and side electrodes when high voltage is transferred from the ignition coil to the spark plug, igniting the air/fuel mix. However, each moment the plug fires, a small portion of the electrodes wears away, widening the gap and prompting spark plug replacement.

Ignition System's Primary and Secondary Circuit

In the ignition system, there are two circuits: primary and secondary. The primary circuit comprises the battery, the primary winding of the ignition coil, the control module (switching equipment), and the ignition switch. On some cars, the secondary circuit includes a distributor, the secondary winding of the ignition coil, spark plugs, and spark plug wires. The ignition coil turns the battery's 12 volts to 15,000-40,000 volts, which the spark plugs need.

Distributor ignitions have a separate coil for each pair of cylinders, electronic distributorless ignitions have a coil, and COP systems have a coil for each spark plug. All of them are also constructed in the same way. The primary winding consists of 100-200 twists of strong wire wound around an iron core. The secondary winding has hundreds of rolls of good wire within the main winding. As the current flows through the main winding, a magnetic field is created. As the current flow is stopped by the control module, the magnetic field breaks, resulting in a high voltage in the secondary winding.

For years, breaker point distributor ignition systems were the industry standard, but the breaker points were destroyed, needing regular maintenance. Electrical distributor ignitions were an advancement, but the rotor, distributor, and cap all wore out. Waste spark ignition systems replace the distributor, and each couple of cylinders has its coil, but spark plug wires are occasionally used. COP ignitions are the most sophisticated devices. The spark plug wires have been disconnected, and ignition timing is controlled remotely, avoiding the arcing and misfires that wire failure could cause.
