MSD Street Fire CD ignitions are perfect for budget-minded enthusiasts. Street Fire CD ignitions offer capacitive discharge technology that fires a series of multiple sparks for 20 degrees of crankshaft rotation when the engine is running under 3,000 rpm. This ensures complete combustion and produces great throttle response with a smooth idle. MSD's Street Fire CD ignitions are built within a durable cast aluminum housing and easily connects to points, amplifiers, and magnetic pickup distributors. There's even an adjustable rev limiter (100 rpm increments) for overrev protection!

Used to replace a MSD-6 control box making my 34 Ford roadster street runnable. Really like the firing indicator and also tack connection.

Does not work

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

Spent entire weekend trying to get this POC to work, the MOST I could get was revving and breaking up then shutdown. Returned to original setup and runs great- where is the performance improvement?

An Improvement to the Ignition System

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

I bought this for my 1971 VW Squareback as an upgrade to the standard Kettering system, following the cues from the air cooled Porsches, which had Capacitive Discharge Ignitions (CDI) much earlier. I had already installed a Pertronix magnetic pickup to replace the points and condenser and to my surprise, the instructions had a section specifically for this set up, which made installation wiring super simple. My only issue was in my application, the power and ground wires could have been a little longer and all the other wires a little shorter for an ideal installation location but for a universal fit product, it's impossible to have a perfect compromise. I have yet to run this with my new engine (in progress) but I honestly have noticed a difference on the current (very tired) engine. Before installation, I would have pretty rough throttle transitions when shifting and getting off and then back on the throttle quickly that this CD box really smoothed out. I have not run it for very long but so far, so good. I did notice extra pitting/arcing on the dist. cap contacts after a week of running but I've yet to do a full assessment to see if the higher spark voltage is wearing my stock cap and plugs any faster. Overall, I'm happy with it and at $50 less than the 6A/AL boxes, it's perfect for my application, small, simple, and effective. ...read more
