OK, so I looked online and discovered what it is, but do they really DO anything?

I believe they gave a hotter spark but there are much better units out now.

Early Corvair guys bought Judson superchargers, that ignition part probably came in the kit. Judson supercharged Corvair's were very fast.
Here's one on a VW.

Thanks Ed Stevenson and 64Powerglide! Pretty cool stuff. I'm going to clean it up and mount it on a garage wall as an auto "art" piece.
