The Megajolt Lite Jr. (MJLJ) is a fully programmable, stand-alone ignition controller designed to control a Ford EDIS 4, 6 or 8 crank-fired ignition module. The result is a precision, digitally controlled distributor-less ignition system.

The MJLJ is an ideal ignition solution for carburated engines; it can also work in conjunction with compatible EFI systems.
