On your MSD paperwork does it show the timing curve for a 924na or what you are running.
Can you tie a link or picture to this thread.
I want to see what they are saying is a good performance timing curve for this car
Thanks.

Doesn't the MSD use the stock distributor for ignition timing signals?

I love my msd 6box. I was told to open up the plug gap
were you guys told that. You know more than specified
cause of the hotter multiple spark.

Yep, because of the much higher voltage generated by the MSD unit you really should take advantage of it and open the gap up on the plugs which will give you better power and combustion. If you had a gap of say .035 you could go to a .045 in most cases. I have used them on alot of cars and think they are a good and relatively cheap upgrade that anyone can put on. Still haven't put one on the 924 yet, but it's on the "to do" list....
