PerTronix D180811 Flame-Thrower Electronic Distributor Billet VW Type 1 Engine Plug and Play with Ignitor II Technology Non Vacuum Red Cap
Part Number: D180811
Federal and state "anti-tampering" laws regulate modifications that affect emissions from motor vehicles and prohibit the sale, installation, and on-highway use of any add-on or modified emissions-related part on any pollution-controlled vehicle unless the part has received an exemption from the California Air Resources Board ("CARB") or is considered an exempt or replacement part. If a part has a California Executive Order Exemption (aka an EO #) or meets the requirements for an exempt part such as a Cat Back Exhaust system or is considered a replacement part, it is legal for sale or use in all 50 states. We are required by law to inform you about the legality of parts that we manufacture and sell and will refuse the sale of certain parts if the following requirements are not conformed with. Use of non compliant parts for purposes other than stated can result in a citation, fines, and/or confiscation of the vehicle. For the ordered parts listed below, you must certify, by clicking one of these boxes that you are using the product in the manner stated and for the application as specified by the manufacturer.

- Precision CNC machined 6061-T6 billet aluminum housings are lightweight yet offer maximum strength.
- Our Billet distributors ship with Ignitor II modules factory installed.
- Each billet distributor is hand polished and buffed to a high luster.
- Tempered distributor shaft has low torsion displacement for accurate timing and extended operational life.
- Upper ball bearing and extra long oil impregnated bronze lower bushing work together to reduce friction and provide shaft and advance mechanism stability reducing high RPM vibration.
Plug n' Play billet distributors are designed for maximum ignition performance at a price you can afford. Our distributors ship with Ignitor II technology modules. Replace your outdated points, electronic distributor or bulky HEIs with this performance proven system. Simply install the distributor in the engine, connect two wires and start it up! For even more performance, consider adding one of our compatible Flame-Thrower II coils for increased spark energy and higher RPM potential. The lineup includes the Flame-Thrower II canister style coils as well as our HC and HV E-core style coils. FEATURES • Integrated Ignitor II electronic ignition with variable dwell maintains peak energy throughout the entire RPM range, reducing misfires while improving engine performance. • Develops on average 4 times more available energy between 3000 and 5000 RPM, and 2 times more available plug voltage. • Peak current level is reached just prior to spark for maximum energy without the heat build-up, increasing coil and module life. • Adjusts spark timing at higher RPMs to compensate for the inherent electronic delay. • Senses startup and develops more energy for quicker, easier starting. • Built in reverse polarity and over current protection shuts down the system, preventing component damage. • Cobalt magnets and Hall Effect trigger for stable timing and precise spark distribution. • Compensates for inherent electronic delay by adjusting the spark timing throughout the entire RPM range. • Synchronized peak current and spark timing reduces heat build-up. • Compatible with most Capacitive Discharge Systems. • Warranty: 30 months electronics / Limited 1year mechanical.

Emissions CodePerTronix Performance Ignition and Exhaust Brands use a voluntary product identification program whereby all emission sensitive products can be identified by placing numbered labels in product packaging and listing corresponding numeric codes next to each part number. The corresponding numbers and explanations are as follows:
This product has been granted a California Air Resources Board (CARB) Executive Order (EO Number) Exemption. It is 50 State Legal when installed on the appropriate vehicle per the Manufacturer’s Application Guide and Installation Instructions.
This product is legal for use on 1975 and older Non-Catalyst equipped vehicles and is considered a “Replacement Part” per California Air Resources Board regulations, providing ALL emissions sensitive components are retained, including EGR, A.I.R., Heat Risers, etc. and any original or retrofit PCV or NOx device is required for the year of the vehicle. Failure to retain any of these components, or use on ANY originally catalyst equipped vehicles, would render this product illegal for street or off highway use and may only be used for Closed Course Competition.
This product is ILLEGAL for street or off highway use and is only intended for Closed Course Competition use and may never be operated on the street or for off highway use, except for 1965 and older US manufactured, California Certified vehicles; 1967 and older foreign manufactured vehicles, which may have this product installed as long as the vehicle still meets emissions standards for the year of the vehicle and retains any original or retrofit emissions control devices, including EGR, A.I.R. and any NOx device required for the year of the vehicle.
This product is considered a Replacement part per CARB and EPA regulations for emissions compliance and is legal for sale and use on all vehicles in all 50 states when installed according to the Manufacturer’s Application Guide and Installation Instructions.
This product is legal for street or off highway use in states that do not required California EO certification. PerTronix has reasonable basis (prior testing) and believe that this product allows the vehicle to operate within the legal emissions standards in the states that accept the legal provisions of the Clean Air Act and EPA Memorandum 1A. This product is not legal for street or off highway use in states that require CARB EO’s and may only be sold or used for Closed Course Competition use in those states.
This product is certified by the manufacturer as being a Non-Emissions sensitive part and therefore does not require emissions certification as emissions regulations are not applicable.
This product is designed for swapping a non-original engine into a vehicle that did not offer it. Laws vary by state regarding emissions regulations for engine swaps. This product is illegal for Street or Off Highway use on any 1975 or newer vehicle originally equipped with a catalytic converter and may further be illegal depending on state or federal engine swap emissions laws regardless of vehicle year and would therefore only be legal for Closed Course Competition use.
