MSD digital 6A ignition controllers--great ignition systems get even better! And, now you can update your ride with the digital circuitry of these powerhouses. MSD lowered the profile for a sleek look and routed the wiring out one side of the unit through a sealed and locked connector for easy installation with a clean, neat look under your hood. More important is what's inside these digital 6A ignitions. Microprocessors, updated circuits and efficient components control every firing to help the ignition make more power with less current draw--each spark packs more than 135 millijoules of energy with up to 530 volts! Others strive where MSD succeeds; join the proven win-win of "fire to drive" with unmistakable, MSD technology at its best--digital 6A ignition controllers.

must have

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

I put this on my 1970 chevelle with a built 454, it has made a huge difference in start ups and was easy to install. My spark plugs look a lot better and not running as rich anymore. Great product and a must have for your older cars

Great Spark

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

Faster starts and much smoother idle. Increased fuel economy. Exactly what I was looking for to replace an older OEM ignition system.

Foundation of a great product family.

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

I've had one in my '55 F-100 for 5 years and now added it to my '76 Porsche 912e as part of an MSD ignition upgrade including plug-wires, coil, and tach adaptor. Easy install, runs great, I even passed CA smog on first attempt. Thanks MSD!

Functions well

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

Installed easily, it is attached to and MSD-8598 using an MSD Blaster 2 coil in a 70 F100. Instructions are easy to follow, take your time and choose a good location to mount it so that running the wires will be easy, clean, and safe. I brought my wires in from the back of the engine and ran the wires on the firewall. Engine seems to run well, no problems at this time. ...read more

MSD 6A

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

Shipping was fast and install fairly simple. This replacd an older 6A box that was dieing. Omly improvement I'd make was to have the option to connect the wiring plug to either end.
