Ferrite beads in pulsed circuits (like spark plug wires) would work
slightly differently. There, they work by slowing down the rise/fall
time of the current pulse (or smoothing its corners), which in turn
reduces the strength of harmonics. It's those harmonics that we hear
in the ham bands. In that application, I WOULD use a single ferrite
"clamp-on" on each wire.
Ferrite chokes on other wiring can help ingnition noise to the
extent that they prevent the COUPLING of that noise on that wiring.
