Raceservice4u Twin plug systems
Twin plug systems were used on many flat 6 Porsche
Raceservice4u use only time periode materials; Mechanical centrifugal weights in the twin plug distributors and time periode circuit boards in CDI Boxes.
FIA appendix K and other national historic racing regulations will not allow any modern programable electronics and any use of Leds.
Experts recommend installing a twin-plug ignition system if the compression ratio is higher than 10:1.
911 engines need a high dome piston to get this high compression ratio.
The combustion chamber will then almost be split in 2.
It will take some time for the ignition flame front to spread across the combustion chamber.
For a high performance engine you need the second plug to improve the ignition and increase power.
Some Historic race regulations will not allow you to use contact less, a modern ignition system or a 964 dual distributor.
If you need to use contact points; raceservice4u has the reasonably priced solution.
Tip(see picture); This way you can direct the ignition flame front to both sides of the dome.
This page explains what distributors are availble. And you find some instructions and manuals for the twin plug systems.

Raceservice4u twin plug distributor is a replica which is based on a Bosch 911 distributor and a reproduced rotor and cap.
We had the opportunity to test the difference between Twin plug and single plug performance on the same engine. The engine was new, so the test could not be done to the full RPM range. The result surprised me positive. 29 NM and 31 HP extra at 5000RPM is a very good result for a 3.0 engine with 40 mm Webers. I guess more then 300 Hp at 7500 RPM is realistic.
Some customers engines;
The main body is made of die-cast aluminium. Which is a very solid construction and looks like the original.
Made with Time period parts.
Available Twin plug systems
The prices are from 2850,- Euros. See the RSR Shop.
Advance curve setup;
The Raceservice4u distributor is configured with a centrifugal advance of 20 degrees, this allows the initial setting of 8 degrees static and thus a total of 28 degrees total timing is achieved between 2500 rpm and 3500 rpm.
We and our costumers have found this to be perfect for race and fast roadcars.
A costum advance curve is possible. Ask this with your order.
Caps and Rotors available
The original rotor and cap of Magneti Marelli and the Bosch set are not availble any more or only available as very expensive NOS. We have some availble mail ; janve#raceservice4u.com.
Twin plug Bosch recreation Cap and rotor from Racesetrvice4u.
We have now new caps and rotors available. Made with our own mould and the quality is AMAZING. We think they are the best available on the market now : See pictures.
The improvements are;
High gloss in and outside is not only for the nice look, but is better for insulation.
For orders, quotations, information or questions please mail to firstname.lastname@example.org

The rotors need the extra bearing to hold it in the centre. There is a risk damaging the expensive rotor and cap.
Not all suppliers have this option. For Raceservice4u is this standard.
