Re: Ignition Systems

Yes stronger spark or as it says multiple spark discharge.
Alot better than the factory system but only any real good if the motor is worked or a very high compression.
They do come with a ford specific wiring loom, no cutting of wires etc. but you'll have to ask for it.

Re: Ignition Systems

When I fitted one to my EB, I sourced the injector type inline plug and socket, and fitted it to the end of the msd wires, so basically all you need to do is unplug the current connector from the coil and connect it to the socket on the msd, and plug the plug from the msd to the coil.
In Perth, the connectors are available through Petroject.
