Direct injection (DI) was integrated by replacing the twin spark ignition with a single spark plug on the exhaust side combined with a high-energy spark coil.
This (flow of current and magnetic force) is the result of, and happens in concert with, the passage of magnets imbedded in the flywheel as they rotate past (with a small air gap) the face of the laminated pole pieces, around which the spark coil (ignition coil) is positioned.
This accumulates the electrical energy swelling within the primary winding of the spark coil, and dumps it in a quick, and even at low cranking speed, intense burst.
