your going to need to trigger off the crank, or cams somehow.
maybe you can get a custom crank pully machined with a trigger wheel section on the inside edge. then mount the magnetic sensor under/behind where its hard to see

Re: 16v +MS +coilpack....but no crank trigger?! (need_a_VR6)

I was thinking about using an optical cam sensor(nissan) and disk inside the the block off plate of the distributer, you can get them in a very small size and then to hide the wires you could drill through the flange and have just three small wires to hide
or something like this

I am unsure of the physical size of this but it looks like it could be modified to replace the 16v dizzy

the crank wheel is inside the engine on the Crank, if you where using an aba bottom end you would already have it, I think the only way to hide it would be inside the distributer block off plate.

The op seems t say you've got a crank sensor. If I were you, I'd just go ahead and use that. It's a 60-2 wheel.

And there you have it folks...secret #4 of 7
Damn vortex is getting good these days.
PART # : 036 105 189 C...Its available for ~$88US or so.The only thing that sucks about it is that it is press fitted to the flywheel hub on the crank.

OK do you have any idea how hard or easy it would be to press fit it?
