Has anyone installed an MSD? It seems like a good way to get performance.

msd is a brand....what part are you talking about
mr_dude
A coil that amplifies ignition and sparks multiple times.
nik
i though ST had an internal coil

Our cars have interanl coils ... if you wanted to upgrade your iginition you would have to do the whole thing as opposed to doing an upgraded coil. MSD is a brand it is not a device. They make some really good ignition products but from what I have read on this site with our cars they don't really do much unless you are turbo

hmm... you didn't specify, but i got an idea which product you're talking about. personally, i'll recommend the HKS Twin Power high performance ignition system Type-DL1. may cost alot, but i heard alot of good stuff bout it, and it's said to be the most effective. i'll be getting it after my swap. biggrin.gif

no thats a distributer (sp) cap.. the coil is what actually makes the spark. it on the drivers side firewall. jsut follow the center wire on the distributer and it leads to the coil. if its external if u dont have a wire to follow so then its internal behind the distributer.
Consynx
oh, thought we were talking about the distributor...cuz yea, thought it was referred to as a distribution coil tongue.gif

im learning. . .
that or im thinking of internal...
can't even picture how the external would work well smile.gif

I have seen all kinds of crazy ignition work I don't understand, so don't feel too bad. smile.gif

The 96 GT I swapped had the coil in stock placement bolted to the firewall about half way across.
