it has been discussed before so the search tool will bring up threads if you go looking - but obviously the specifics depend on the engines.

The cost of converting is usually very high - and you may be better off buying a 2nd hand one with the features you want and selling yours on. You might be lucky and find there is already a "lighting coil" on the engine and you can tap into this (it may need a regulator etc - but that is much cheaper).
