Turn your old-school mechanical advance distributor into a high-powered programmable ignition!

The Black Box Programmable Timing Control Module connects directly to your existing distributor and coil offering a Fully Programmable 21x21 Spark Table, good up to 10,000 rpm. The Black Box uses an Internal Coil Driver that will support up to 8 cylinders and incorporates a 5 Bar MAP Sensor, allowing boosted timing control over 40 psi. Additionally, it includes an internal High-End rev limiter as well as a 2-Step rev limiter for launch control.

Housed in an attractive black anodized billet aluminum housing, the Black Box looks as good as it functions. Measuring only 3 5/16" L x 2 3/16" W, it's incredibly small for its performance output.

Want better fuel economy? The Black Box will allow up to 45 degrees of ignition advance. CB has seen as high as 20% improved fuel economy when installed and properly tuned.

Black Box connects to ignition points, aftermarket ignition modules such as Compu-fire and Pertronix, MSD distributors, CB Performance Magnaspark 2 Ready-to-run and Magnetic Trigger distributors. Most aftermarket ignition boxes can also be used such as MSD 6A, 6AL, 7AL, Summit and Mallory.

**Will not work with a Compu-Fire DIS-IX or Pertronix Ignitor 3**
**Resistor Spark Plugs are required**
**Distributor must be locked out with no internal advance.**

5 of 5 Black box, good dope September 30, 2020
Reviewer: Jaime Garcia from Oceanside, California  
My 1966 type one single port is running cool with new power! I had some problems ,but with a call to Mark it's up and running. Installed  the single carb program and the car likes it.  I bought this box 6 years ago hopping to install it sooner. Can not wait to change things up . I am sure this will work very well with the change of a larger motor with higher compression . Black box will be the ticket!

5 of 5 Black Box December 30, 2018
Reviewer: David Ward from Costa Mesa, CA United States  
I installed the black box on my draw through turbocharged Baja bug today. I used the 10psi map as my base and tweaked it a little bit. The car is a completely different beast now! It’s way easier to drive and way more responsive. I should have purchased this years ago.

3 of 5 Great but I have dwell problems July 18, 2017
Reviewer: Craig Allardyce from Stratford, Victoria Australia  
Love this programmable unit as I can retain the old school look under the bonnet but am able to rework my advance curve at will. The only problem I have is a rough idle due to very low dwell of approx 11 degrees compared to running with the pertronix which gives me 30 degrees. Wish it had dwell adjustment but I can't find anything.

Reviewer: Michael Koegel from Odem, TX United States  
The Black Box worked great for my car I have an MG Midget with an sr20de swapped in to it that was converted to carbs and also has a modified 009 vw dizzy in it with no centrifugal advance so I had no timing advance at all with the Black Box and a little help from Mark I was able to get the Midget running like a rocket . Thanks to all of y'all there at CB Performance for yalls great products!!!!!!!!
