Hey All,

I was just on jegs.com and was looking for some parts and came across a MSD kit to suit 5.0L. Now i was wondering if anyone has purchased these kits or used some of its components example distributor? and what difference it has made to your car.

I just like to outline i do have a stroker 347, the link:

Can be bought at Rocket for well under $500.00...With just module...There's No need for rev limiter on efi engines...
I had one on my engine.. But with low comp and wide spark advance it couldn't stop csossover spark in dissy cap due to strong spark...But they are fine on n/a engines... I'll be fitting the Dis-4 which is required on wasted spark or distributor less ignitions...At present since removing MSD I have to run plug gap at .020 any bigger and spark gets blown out...Engine does run crisper with one fitted...

im running a msd6a, blaster2 coil and the msd tfi dizzy in mine..


i run the 6a and the coil purely because i had them, the dizzy was coz its a $1000 cheaper than a stock replacement.

i wouldnt say it does anything for performance on a stock motor, but my plugs are still very clean after 20,000kms...
