Re: What are the best electronic dizzys for a cleveland

The best is only dictated by how full your pocket is!

msd 6a/6al/7al and the new crane programable are used in some very fast cars so I think most top name stuff once setup will do the job on anything that will see mainly street duties!

My best mate is running the new crane dizzy hooked up to a wolf efi on top of a blown injected 351 4V in his xa coupe without any dramas and this animal sees true street miles. He just drove it 3000 odd kays in a powertour in the states.

these shots were taken nearly 2yrs ago and he has since finnished the car and moved stateside

How much are those new crane dizzys. They look very trick. You can adjust the advance curve on the side of them cant you.

A Crane Dizzy is a little cheaper than a grand - priced one last week from Tony at A.S.A.P. (www.buy-asap.com). Quoted $548 , pretty competitive against an MSD unit with better features.

Long live the good old stock Bosch! Bit fussy to tune compared to others but still OK.

Re: What are the best electronic dizzys for a cleveland

I know a very competent engine builder who just installed a Crane dizzy & Fireball unit etc on a 351 & whilst it ran allright he did comment that he was disapointed with the adjustment available on the dizzy.

Not sure if he was referring to the total amount or the increments or base setting to total advance

Do you think you could find out a bit more why he thought they were disappointing?I had kinda talked a mate into getting one of these units!!!(i'll be up the creek if it's crap!!!) and he's going to order one monday morning - any info would be appreciated.

I have an MSD ready to run and after about 5000km of street driving, I cant get the whine out of it.
