I've been working on a coil driver solution for the past couple of months and may have had a breakthrough this week. I'm using an AEM 1900U "universal" on my Restomod Futura for an EMS.  From the factory the 1900U can only drive 5 coils whereas my 32-valve Modular V8 has 8 individual coils.  What I learned this week is that the 1900U can drive 8 individual coils, but not without a modification by AEM.  I've shipped my box off to California for modification and I'm patiently waiting for it to come back.  This is the last thing that is keeping me from test driving the car.  I lowered it off the jack stands last night and the stance looks pretty good.  Cannot wait to get it on the road!

Just because my car is down doesn't mean I haven't been wrenching.  Last Sunday afternoon I helped my buddy Eric Meyer get his Twin Turbo 302 Mustang running with an AEM 30-1400 box and then some more work on the idle last night and brought the car up to temp for the first time.  This car is a stock bottom-end block with GT40 heads, stock intake and E303 cam.  Alot of nice craftmanship has gone into the turbo system, a big custom front mount intercooler and several other areas of the car.  Now that the car is running, we plan to be making boost in a week or so if we can get the wastegates plumbed and a couple other issues sorted out.  Here's a shot of the car that's about a month old and was taken before the intake was bolted on.
