Yep the MSD gear is just to hard to look past regardless of price... WIns hands down. Plug in and race. The advance changing bushes are great ectSTROKEXD said:I fitted a MSD 6AL and MSD Pro-Billet Distributor a few months ago, a great dizzy, but at nearly $700 it ain't cheap. It's the best dizzy out there in my view if you don't mind paying that much. I previously ran a Mallory and Accel but they didn't last very long.
I'm sure that Ford's factory electronic XC onwards being magnetic trigger works fine with the 6AL if you already have one of these. They are as robust as the MSD Pro-Billet but a hassle to change advance curve.
The 6AL also works fine with points, so you've got heaps of choices mate.
They work very well, the adjustability is the best part. They cost around $500-00.STROKEXD said:smciner1 how do you find the programmable timing computer? Worth the money? Was thinking of one myself to custom tune my timing better than I've been able to with the mechanical advance. They expensive?
Myself and others have had high speed misfires. And a couple more have had complete failures (the MSD shit itself and the car wouldnt start).STROKEXD said:Racer what was the reason(s) for the 6AL failing? Some people say they are a great unit and others say otherwise. More divided opinion on the 6AL than most things. MSD seems to be the only mainstream manufacturer that stress cycles each unit before sale and the 6AL is used in Nascar racing.
