The ignition system on an engine is an incredibly complex system that relies on timing down to the millisecond to keep everything running perfectly. The spark plug is usually the only part of the system that people commonly think about, but there are many other parts of the ignition that keeps the whole thing working. For the spark plug to be able to burn the fuel at maximum efficiency, it has to be an incredibly hot spark. The ignition coil takes the low voltage of the battery, generally 12 volts, and bumps it up to between forty and fifty thousand volts, depending on your vehicle. Within the distributor is the ignition condenser, which is a small capacitor that jacks up the voltage even further. To get the hottest spark possible, you want to have a quality condenser, such as the Accel ignition condenser. Accel has been making high quality engine components for over 25 years, and you can be confident that everything they manufacture, such as the Accesl ignition condenser, is of the highest quality. The Accel ignition condenser can be replaced separately or as part of the replacement of the entire distributor or the entire ignition system.
