123Ignition/123Tune - can't seem to find out if it will fit under the carbies but both seem to be OK with + Earth.

I've used a 123 unit (rather than pertronix at the time, after going through internet and finding issues about reliability) : it fits weber heads (angle top) and I've been very happy with it so far (I've posted about the installation on the forum then, with a TPS adaptation).

It is pluggable to a PC for entering parameters and you can enter 2 curves to chose from live by the toggle of a switch. There is also a convenient tuning software that measures the time it takes to go from one rpm level to an other one : not as efficient as a rolling road session, but a lot cheaper...
