The Summit Racing Street & Strip Sportsman CD digital ignition packs a lot of power and features in a single extruded aluminum box. There’s plenty of output—550 volts primary, 50,000 volts of secondary output, and 160 millijoules (mJ) of spark energy—to light off a high horsepower, high compression engine. The Sportsman’s capacitive discharge design quickly builds up multiple, short duration sparks at low and midrange engine speeds, then reverts to a single high voltage spark at high rpm to completely burn the air and fuel in the cylinders. You also get two rev limiters (adjustable from 1,000 to 12,000 rpm in 100 rpm increments) and a single stage retard (adjustable from 0.1 to 25 degrees) that can be set with simple pushbuttons and an LED built into the top—no pills, chips, or modules to mess with or lose. And because the Street & Strip Sportsman ignition is digital, spark output is accurate and reliable—and costs less than the competition’s less reliable analog box.
