I didn't pay attention to the fact that the J723T power stage was for 6 cyl - I found that the tach signal from it doesn't work with my tach either. Added the relay with transistor - 86 to +, 85 to tach feed, 30 to ground. I still have the stock powerstage wired, so powerstage pin 1 feeds into the tach circuit via the original coil (1) terminal. I didn't need to add the EZK pulse signal. Without the ground, the tach didn't seem to register correctly. Have to tidy up all the wiring now.

Hey Guys,

Very soon I will be taking over distribution of the Buchka Wasted Spark boards from Karl. I'll handle all the sales and shipping. Watch for details soon. Just wanted to let you guys know they will be available again!

Thanks,
Chris (aka Duder, aka CFlo)

Just to clear Karl's name, he has given me a refund and a honest apology regarding the issue. Great guy, but it's a shame I couldn't get my chip since I already have all the pieces....... no 2-step on bti boards..... .....*sigh*

That's awesome news. I appreciate you're a busy man, but do you have a timeframe of when you'll be ready to rock and roll with these boards?

Edit/update: To answer my own question, a very short timeframe. Well done!

Switched to Bosch powerstage.

This doesn't jive with the BTI indicated layout for connections between PS and coil - I wired mine following your layout & had to reverse the coil wires for it to run. It would seem I/O pins 2&1 are for 2,3 cyl, and 7&6 are for 1,4 cyl




Edit: Nevermind, the inputs from the board to the powerstage are reversed between the two schematics - that would account for it. My mistake was using your schematic as the wiring reference

fyi, I received parts from both BTI and CFlo in a timely manner.

I was able to get my wasted spark up and running with no issues. All parts very finely made and both were very easy to do business with.

The engine revs very smoothly out to 4500rpm. Too scarrred to take it out past 5k with 183,000 miles on it.







pics don't show :(

Awesome, glad to hear it! Nice installation too. Do you mind sharing a part number for the plug wire kit you used?

I re-hosted the pics. Looks like dropbox has some issues.

Thanks! I received the wire harness from Fabian at BTI. It's custom made and high quality. The internal end is a 4 pin microphone style connector. There is also a branch that runs over to the OEM coil. That end has a spade for power and a terminal for a relay.

No problem. Maybe it wasn't obvious from what I wrote, but I was asking about the spark plug wires.

Lol, not sure why I read wire harness! I received the plug set from BTI too, no part numbers.
