Jacobs Compu-Sensor Ignition Module

Every hot-rodder knows that by using parts that themselves look fast, you can make your car go just a bit faster than it would have gone had you chosen the slower looking part.

This understanding was not wasted on the folks at Jacobs Electrical Products Inc, when they styled the case for this vintage “Compu-Sensor” transistor spark module. The cooling fins are angled such that the screen printed, serial numbered label plate seems to be appoaching the sound barrier while re-entering the atmosphere after hurtling through space.

The Jacobs followed me home when a fellow vintage BMW enthusiast was giving it away. I have no real use for it, but I’m a sucker for anything with an atomic-themed logo.

    Heh. This reminded me of the pic of the guys from The Fast and the Furious standing by the little orange car, with the caption that says, “I see you’ve added the high performance stickers. How many horsepower does that add?”

    I also remember back to my pony car days, when washing my ’67 Mustang always made it seem to go faster. Ahh, performance.

    I have a ignition module “Compu Sensor for Porsche” serial no. 42140, model no. 38017.
    Can you send me the just connections for the blue, white and red wire.
    Manny thanks.
    Best regards.

    Do I have to connect it ignition wire or it has it’s own wires? Could it really make my car to go faster?
