    Sounds like a massive load of **** to me! Certainly not something you can replace your std ignition amp with though.

    Are you sure it's your ignition amp that's failling when warm? I thought I had this issue a long time ago, and it turned out to be spark plugs! It'd run fine when cold then start to miss as it warmed up.

    New plugs cured it. Just don't fit denso iridium ****.
