Cool. I just found a full VW knockbox ignition setup in my garage. The early CIS VWs had a standalone ignition that uses the hall-sender distributor, so since I just made one, I think I'll try to run my B21 on it. The ignition curve is quite similar to the stock points distributor I have, according to the green books. It also uses a knock sensor, but it would be very sensitive to the larger volvo engine, since it was originally on a 1.8L. I may just tie it up out of the way, although I doubt there's any consequence to running without one with an ecu from the early 80s.
