It looks like a mash of a few parts. I think it looks like an edis 4 module and coil pack of an early Zetec Escort..... although I welcome a more learned answer

Its hardly a "Megajolt System" as it has no megajolt controller or HT leads and judging by the fact there is no other plugs in the loom, it never was a megajolt system. I imagine all this will do it allow the engine to start and run a limp home mode I.E. not over 2000 rpm.

Looks like a module from an OHV escort/Fiesta, an ESC2 module, this will run a coilpack it just needs its own 12v supplies & earths and an input from a crank sensor. Wiring diagrams are easily available on the net, I have heard of folk running Zetecs from this set up, of course this is for spark only, it will not run fuel injection at all, you would need carbs.

YES You are right Dennis
it does work loads of people have done it this way
as you said loads of info on the web like zetec inside and zetec tiger (i think ) or tiger cat inside ......
the only difference would be if this set was going on a zetec then the trigger wheel wont be used as the zetec triggers the pickup via its flywheel
that set up would work on say a cvh or pinto the hardest bit would be to mount that trigger wheel on the front pulley ( probably easier just to buy a new trigger wheel from ahem .......trigger wheels

As per other posts

It looks to be a mixture of different components

Ford EDIS 4 modue

Vauxhall ESC module & coilpack

I believe that the ESC module is the Vauxhall equivalent of the Ford EDIS system.
I have no idea of how the two would manage to work side by side

The Ford EDIS module will run at 10 degrees BTC without an input signal from elsewhere
This is more of a limp home feature of the system & would not run the engine for peak perfomance without a signal from the likes of a Megajolt or the likes.

As said in other posts. Spark only, you'll need carbs.

Personally I would stick with Megajolt & EDIS if you want to run carbs

That should all work fine together in that case.

Personally I prefer the mapable option that Megajolt & the likes provide.

I have the wiring diagrams for the EDIS set up if you need them
