123/TUNE+ 6-R-V-G (bluetooth), replaces Lucas distributors
Tuning your engine using your own tablet or smartphone? The TUNE+ is the first wireless electronic ignition that you can program yourself using your iOS or Android Bluetooth 4.0 devices. The free app enables you to adjust the advance curve. It shows an electronic dashboard. Within the settings there is also an immobilizer integrated to secure your car with a state-of-the-art anti-theft system!
The "G" model will replace most Lucas distributors, for example used in MG, Triumph and Jaguar (please check dimensions before ordering). The 123/TUNE+ 6-R-V-G for 6 cylinders comes (only) with an upright cap.
123/TUNE+ programming wireless
After installing the free app and making the Bluetooth connection you can enter the values: at which RPM do you need how many degrees crankshaft? In this way you will easily program your ideal advance curve with your smartphone or tablet.

Please note before ordering the TUNE+
We strongly advise you to check the dimensions of the 123/TUNE+ with the original distributor cap AND to carefully read the installation manual before you order! In the installation manual you will find more information and a few examples with a step by step explanation on how to install and program the 123/TUNE+.
The TUNE+ will run on all iOS and Android devices with Bluetooth 4.0 (or higher).
Coil and spark plugs
Although used coils all look alike, they should be viewed with suspicion since one cannot tell from the outside whether and how often they were exposed to overheating in the past. Installing the 123ignition system will ensure that the coil will never overheat again in the future. Of course you can also easily order this here, we recommend the Bosch Red coil.
Perhaps you will also need new spark plugs? At 123ignitionshop we have added the spark plugs most commonly used in addition to the 123ignitions we offer. See: the spark plugs list.
- Direction of rotation
- 4,0 - 15,0 volts
- 500 - 8000 rpm
- -30 to 100 Celsius
- Stock or high energy coil, primary coil NOT below 1,0 ohm
- Constant current, fully automatic
- After 1 second current is switched off
- Less than 0,5 degr. crankshaft
- Programmable: -20 / +20 degrees.
- Max. Advance
- 45 degr. crankshaft
- red +6V or +12V, black '-' ignition coil, blue chassis ground
- Earth type
- Suitable for negative and positive earth systems
- Wirelessly programmable with Android or iOS app
123/TUNE+ Healey 3000
Healey 3000 voorzien van een 123/TUNE+ om de curve van ontsteking nog beter dan de bestaande 123 aan te passen. Dit na de standaard carburateurs te hebben vervangen door 3 stuks Dellorto DHLA.
Dat had ik eerder moeten doen
Wat een geweldig apparaat en wat een fantastische service. Er is twee jaar door allerlei garagisten aan de afstelling van mij Jaguar op LPG geprutst. De een wist het nog beter dan de ander en de euro's vlogen mijn zak uit. 123 erin en 123 klaar. No-nonsense, verstand van zaken en goede apparatuur. Het Bluetooth dashboard is niet alleen een leuke gadget, maar het scheelt ook heel veel afstel-tijd. Super bedankt Leen!
1069 Triumph '2.6'PI
Fitted the unit last weekend, all very easy.
Managed to modify the advance curve to reduce high-idle speed whilst restored throttle bodies seal up and increase overall advance to improve mid-range / top end performance.
Very happy so far. Reliability? Let's see next year though many people seem happy with the product.
Jaguar E-type 3xSU with 123 ignition 123/TUNE bluetooth
Installation was easy enough, just follow the steps, both in the car and on the phone. If you still have the original screw-in HT leads, you need to order those too. The distributor comes with a preprogrammed curve with which the 4.2 XK engine will run, but you need to program the right curve of course. Compared to the original distributor, starting is easier because ignition can be set later, and fuel economy is better because more advance can be applied on higher RPM's than idle. Mileage went up from around 1L/5km to 1L/7km. I expect better results with a trip to the rolling road. Good product, at a price indeed, and I do carry my old one in the boot as emergency repair :-)
Excellent fit and works perfectly
I installed on the engine of my tuend 1974 TR6, replacing a 20 year old lumenition optronic system.
Installation very simple as the distributor fits beautifully, i did find the o ring supplied was too thick and replaced this, but otherwise perfect.
Set ignition and basic curve to match the old distributor, which i read off with a variable timing light, and the engine fired right up.
Shall now be having a rolling road session to tune properley.
Also set the rev limit and tested it, works nicely.
All in all a very good piece of kit.
