I'm confused here about what the MSD box does. I see a lot of people running them, and I was thinking if it is worth it I might need to save up some money for one. Mods are in the sig, and the car is being put back together with my homeported heads and HOTcam as we speak.
What does the MSD 6AL box do, and would it be worth it for me?

I think people get the 6AL who run N20.......otherwise they get the 6A.

MSD stands for Multiple Spark Discharge, and that's just what it does. It gives you better spark. At low RPMs, it provides 4 sparks at a time, instead of just one like the stocker. Plus, its a hotter spark. At high RPMs, its provides a super hot spark. It makes sure all your fuel is burned. It provides more combustion, therefore more power. Its not a SOTP improvement, but every little bit helps. It will improve your gas mileage as well (because its more efficient with the fuel). The 6AL differs from the 6A (the base model) in that it provides "soft touch rev control" You use these "pills" to plug in (like popping a fuse into a fuse block) to the box, that decide where your rev limiter will be. It is an easy way to set your rev limiter where you want it, and it cuts the spark, which is the best way to limit revs. I think you'd see an improvement with your car. I'd reccommend it.
Beautiful car by the way, I love that blue color!!
There's the rest of them. Those were Grand Spirit Radials. The crappiest tires ever!! I got tired of spinning all the way through first and halfway through second, so now I'm daily driving drag radials!!
Holy ****! I saved a couple of the large pics. Those are very nice.
Thank you, thank you

Steve, I'd love to buy that from you, but I'm afraid I won't have the cash to do it anytime soon. This heads and cam project was somewhat unexpected(blown headgasket so I figured go ahead and do it all). The problem is that for the first time I haven't had all the money up front to do a project, so I had to put some on a credit card. Well, some as in about $1100. Anyhoo, I have to make sure that's paid off before I go back to college because when that happens I cut back to two days a week working. If something changes I'll shoot you an email.
