Upgraded ignition systems for Jaguar XK, XKE and early sedans

Ignition 123 Distributors

The new range of Ignition 123 distributors for 6 cylinder Jaguar XK, XKE and early saloon models is one of the most exciting performance and reliability upgrades that we have seen for many years.

Installation is simple, and even the base model offers no fewer than 16 built-in advance curves available at the touch of a switch. All models feature a unique LED display indicating precise static timing, and the top of the line TUNE model even has a USB port that enables you to connect to a computer, for infinite tuning possibilites.

Installing the virtually indestructible, high tech Ignition 123 distributor in your classic car will improve fuel economy, performance, cold starting and emissions. Add to that a lifetime of maintenance free reliability, and it is difficult to imagine a better upgrade you could purchase for your Jaguar.

Note: From 1968 onwards, most Jaguars were designed to pick up the tachometer signal directly from the distributor. In this case, for the tachometer to function normally when using the Ignition 123 distributor, the tachometer will have to be modified internally. This service is offered by most (if not all) of the companies that specialize in rebuilding vintage gauges. This requirement will apply to later Series 1.5 and all Series 2 E Types that do not have a tach generator on the rear of the intake camshaft.

We recommend our Magnecor HP plug wire set as an ideal companion to your Ignition 123 distributor.
