22020-A0211 is genuine Nissan CD transistor ignition sold by Nissan Competition. It was hot stuff in the early 1980s, but now the technology is old hat.


This ignition unit is fully transistorized to accomodate high speed engine performance and features stabilized spark performance over all speed ranges.

22020-A0211 TRANSISTOR IGNITION $1,378 USD (2011)

It is competition ignition system. So it doesn't fit any cars factory stock, but is an add-on system.

  • It was in the Nissan competition catalogs
  • It was designed originally for Datsun Fairlady Z432 with S20 engine and Nissan Skyline GTR with S20 engine
  • It works with many other Datsun engines
