I posted this about a month ago in another forum. But got mixed answers and had no idea what to get. Also I e-mailed MSD directly and never got a reply. Am I asking the wrong question? I see most everybody on this site has upgraded to MSD ignition. I have never really fooled with any igntion system crap. So What all do I have to buy to completly re-do the ignition system. And is it a do it yourself job. Or do I need some kind of crazy ass scientific special tool and a PH.D in astro physics? Any help will be appreciated

Heres what I have on my truck,

1. MSD 6A
2. MSD Tach Adapter (keeps the pcm from throwing a code)
3. Accel wiring harness(so you don't have to cut & splice factory wires)
4. MSD 8.5 MM plug wires
5. MSD Blaster Coil

It's a pretty simple straight forward installation, no rocket science degree required. Feel free to send me a PM if you need more details or help on the install :biggthump

yeah u might wanna change that avatar...I have a MSD Coil, got it not too long ago. With it i noticed faster starts, smoother idle, and quicker revs. This might have also come with just a new OEM coil, but its always good to get something better. I plan on getting a BTM next year when i get my V8...

Thanks for the MSD help guys. I am ordering my stuff this week. Sorry about the avatar, I was kind of iffy about putting it on there, Thought it was a cool little picture, but didn't think about people at work. Sorry It is going away.

The MSD6A and 6AL work great on our trucks. A lot of us have had problems with blaster coils though, I would recommend the accel unit for that. You dont really need the wiring harness, its only four wires to cut and splice, power and ground. The tach adapter is to cure a "Soft Code" the pcm will throw. It will not affect anything, or turn on the CEL.

Ive heard that when you get a shift kit you shift at lower rpms, does the msd ignition help shift at higher rpms?

no, it just gives you more spark, and depending on the ignition it will retard timming, give you a 2 step, rev limiter, and so on

MSD does make an ignition bx. for the 4.7L called the stacker 8, made for coil on plug ignitions. Been saving up & plan on ordering one this coming week. will post results after it is installed. Only thing I having trouble making my mind up about is plugs to go with it, thinking either 5224's or ngk v power. not sure yet.
