Attenuators?

Over the weekend, I was attempting to check primary ignition voltage on a 2002 Porsche 996 with the 3.6L engine. I was surprised that the level-over-range warning was going off with the vehicle idling. Apparently this vehicle has very high voltage on the primary side. Does Autoscope sell attenuators...

Secondary ignition on vehicles with individual coils

Most of the vehicles I work on have individual ignition coils. I'll usually start by hooking the red Cx leads up to cylinders 1-3, then switching the last clamp between cylinders 3 and 4. This isn't the end of the world, but it would be nice to be able to watch all 4 cylinders at the same time. Is t...
