check the knowledge base here, i think there are articles about it, or try to find a site called (i think) socheap.com... instructions for a homebuilt system. BE CAREFUL!
good luck!

How come you have to buy or make the transistor crap? I don't know much about stuff like that. I'd figure you just run a ground to the coil and run a switched positive to the positive side of the coil and it works. Steve
