MSD blaster coil here too.... the one that is a direct bolt in. Never had any problems with it, but didnt really notice any difference in performance over the stock coil.

What's the advantage of the MDS over stock? Is it the cost?

I think it pack a little more power than stock. When combined with the 6AL, it gives you 3 sparks instead of just one, below 3000 rpms.

Right now the stock one but the MSD will be going back in soon. No difference in performance but can't justify paying for something and not using it.

83- charcole/raven TC all options, except moon roof? my first love. in great condition, but needs a turbo and some TLC.
