MSD 6AL......HP and ET limits

Post by red barn » Thu Nov 12, 2009 4:06 pm

My 6AL has never given me an ounce of grief, but at what point if any is it wise to step up to a digital 6 or a 7 series. My car is an NA footbreak car with locked timing, so I don't need timing retards or two steps or any features like that. Just a good solid ignition.

If you don't need any of the fancy extras (two-steps, retards, etc.) and you're running N/A, then a 6AL will be a good solid ignition for just about any horsepower or e.t. that you wanna run.
