I believe there is a company somewhere, but not sure if it's in the UK or US? How much did you pay for a new one? I didn't think they were still available

 

My Independent Porsche man in Sussex told me over the phone that he hadnt seen one for a while and expect to pay probably £2000 for one if I coul source it.

 

Mine let me down while I was stuck in a terrible jam and a French Autoroute and I took the car to the nearest Bosche Diagnostic centre, a very small garage but father/Son. we idagnosed the fault together, he made a FEW phone calls and located an original in germany it arrived 2 days later the total bill for everything including French VAT was 1950 euro's I thought this wasnt bad at all.

 

But what to do if they do run out of supply ?????

 

I have the original one he3nce seeking to effect a repair.

A search on Pelican or Rennlist would turn up the answer, i know i read somewhere they can be rebuilt. I have a brand new one in a box, and a perfectly working spare, was wondering what they might be worth...

The spare one i have was a similar story to yours, i was in Le Mans, the CDI unit went pop, there's a small Indie in Arnage and they had one for testing. I begged and begged them to let me buy it and they charged me £1k and kept my old one. Ouch!!

A lot of people go over to the MSD or Permatune boxes as they are much cheaper.
