Go to www.rx7club.com and search for "direct fire" in the first gen section. You will find many threads on how to wire up what you have.

Wasn't there a thread around here...

...a while back detailing the install? (Or was that for a different/earlier version?)

Which year e-dizzy, which year's coils?

I mis-read your post that you had 2nd gen coils - you have two coils. In that case easy install.


The electric dist. has two ignitors. Each ignitor has two terminals. If you visualize the terminals they make a "T".
The ignitor toward the front of the car is the leading. The other is trailing.

You need:
12V switched power to the positive of both coils.
You need a wire running from the top of the "T" of each ignitor to the positive of each coil.
You need a wire running from the other terminal of each ignitor to the negative of each coil.
Done.
