Rev limiters

Most stand-alone rev-limiters state that they are not compatible with CDI systems, however after some research I have concluded that this is because they are intended to be installed with the switching wire connecting the CB(-) terminal on the coil to ground, and that doesn't work for CDI. But they are mostly just a speed-(or more accurately time-interval) dependent switch, which you can connect across the trigger circuit of many CDI installations. I am using a Pertronix Ignitor to trigger the Bosch CDI in my 1973 2.4T, with an Armtech Panel-mounted Rev Limiter (about 95 here in the UK) in parallel with the Ignitor.

Hope this helps
