I have an electronic ignition on my Pitts to replace 1 mag.  I did not do it to increase HP but to get rid of a Dual Mag which is a dual mag on a single drive.  However, I did see a 25rpm increase at full throttle with the electronic ignition.  The electronic system that I have is from Jeff Rose and it works fine for my purpose but I would not install one in an Acro plane just for power increase.  I also would not recommend installation in an aircraft without an electric system.  

If I wanted a HP gain my first step would be to take my cylinders off and send them to Lycon.
