    does anybody have any install pics for this, I have the shop manuals, and I can figure it out, but I wouldn't mind some tips from somebody who has installed one before. thanks.

    I just bought MSD coils off of DuTTch, so that should make things a little bit easier.

    Honestly, stock coils are more than sufficient.

    Not sure what you mean for install pics. Mounting? Wiring?
    The MSD instructions are pretty complete on wiring and setup.
    Glad to help if you have any specific questions.

    More the wireing, it tends to be nemesis, but I found the instructions, so I'm hopeing it'll go pretty smoothly

    it's comming with two of the "Dual Ignition Adapters" so they're already wired, and I guess you can just splice into the white tach wire under the dash and rout that to the rpm sensor, my only other thing is where do I splice in the box I.E. after the PTU, before? thanks.

    Tell me what you guys think about this. What the plan here is MSD DIS-4 and Coils, will allow me to run two range colder plugs, without them fouling out because of the greater spark and larger gap from the MSD. and with the plugs being two ranges colder, I can run a lot more boost without approaching the knock threshold.......that makes sense to me?

    Spark plugs fouling out is a symptom not the disease. Having an ignition system that can properly support the engine at higher boost is great but you have to take into account the ability to deliver the higher fuel requirement as well (among other things). Same with running colder plugs, that's not something to be the goal/target but rather something to go towards when other symptoms point to it.

    Hope that helps.

    I have a walbro and 3sxhotwire, I'm just saying, this is like a preventative measure. I just know that the colder plugs are known to foul out when the engine isn't at operating temp. this way, I prevent that problem, and gain a couple pounds of boost on my knock threshold.
