Please note the following about the 123/VW-R 123ignition
When you need a 123 ignition with vacuum advance, please order a 123/VW-R-V.
Please read the installation manual carefully. It contains the specifications of the 123-ignition system, as well as a step-by-step description of the installation procedure. The installation instructions also contain a cross-reference between the original Bosch number and the setting of the 123/VW-R, as well as a list which links VW engine numbers to the required setting of the 123 ignition.
Coil and spark plugs
Although used coils all look alike, they should be viewed with suspicion since one cannot tell from the outside whether, and how often they were exposed to overheating in the past. Installing the 123 ignition system will ensure that the coil will never be overheated again in future. We recommend the Bosch Blue Coil.
