Re: ignition setups

You'd only need to rebuild the dizzy if it's worn out. Otherwise just hook the msd unit and coil up. I ran an accel unit with the msd 6al and a procomp coil.

Re: ignition setups

I have the crane hi-6 ,lx-92 with msd billet dissy .
I think the crane ing system offers a bit more than the msd but the dissy in crane I have heard is not as good as the msd unit

What extra things does the crane offer than the MSD?

brenxs is on the money. Any decent elect system works fine.
My choice obove all is the std XD elect dizzy, and would say
it is definately on par with all the MSD/Crane ones, but easier to
find at a steal of a price.
I prefer the MSD6AL box,(not because its better/worse than the crane)
because i know it works and is reliable, and you have to choose something .

Re: ignition setups

You only need to play with the curve all the time if you keep changing a) fuels and b) camshaft/engine spec.

Re: ignition setups

Crane ing box offers a better rev limit option and the dissy offers curve ajustment .
I do agree that msd is a bit safer bet as it is more proven than the crane stuff .
I would go for anyone of the msd or crane
