But the high voltage ignition coil concept to replace the distributor does not start from the Swede. Ford pioneered it in the late 80's from what I understand. Speaking of technology spreading in cars. I am astonished in Aruba recently to see a 1996 Toyota Corolla with injector ports on the engine but not used. Only disconnected connectors are on the engine. It still uses a rotor and carburetor, and no heater core. You don't need heat in the tropical paradise, only AC.
