Ignition Booster

Some time ago I built an ignition booster for gasoline engine which gives very big sparks. It uses simple components and performs better than “Crane-Cams” or “MSD”. I think this kind of booster is very promising in drag racing scene.

Here is the normal sparks from ignition coil:

100_1596

Here is the beginning of sparks with ignition booster on:

100_1594

Here is the big ball of plasma:

100_1595

This is the installation on my car:

100_1572

And here is the result of ca. 300 km driving with booster on:

100_1600

Compare to a new spark plug:

Rename multiple files on Linux

“rename” is a very handy tool that we can use to rename multiple files on Linux. To change all upper case filenames to lower case just use:

rename 'y/A-Z/a-z/' *

To change filename img_0001.jpg .. img_XXXX.jpg to Urlaub_0001.jpg .. Urlaub_XXXX.jpg just do:

rename 's/^/Urlaub/' img*

To display the manual just type:

man rename
