    Has anyone tried the normal 4 magnet (90 degrees apart) trigger wheels and compared to the later style 60-2 or similar.

    I believe your talking about efi stuff? I have FuelTech and use the 12-1 degree wheel. But you can’t use a 4 magnet one because there is no reference once engine starts turning over

    It all boils down to "what" is using the signal, and how that "what" processes it. Is a 60-2 superior in some cases, yes, but not always. Is a 4/8/12 better in some cases, yes, but not always. Best to look backward from the controller side, and then ask yourself about the tooth count/profile.
