New MSD Black Ford Ready-to-Run Distributor
The Pro-Billet Ready-to-Run distributor is the perfect upgrade for outdated points distributors. Simply install the distributor in the engine, connect three wires to the coil and fire it up! A maintenance-free magnetic pick-up accurately triggers the module. The increased output of the amplifier easily outperforms stock ignitions and will smooth out the engines idle, improve starting and provide a much higher rpm range. The Ready-to-Run features MSD’s adjustable mechanical advance which allows you to custom tailor an ignition curve to match your engine’s needs. There is also a vacuum advance canister to help improve economy. For positive street performance, the Ready-to-Run is the best choice. Includes a separate tach circuit that is ideal to trigger a tach or an aftermarket EFI such as an Atomic EFI system.
How to Choose a Street Ignition| 01/04/2019
We all know the basics of how an engine works. The air fuel mixture is compressed into the cylinders, which is then ignited by the ignition system. Just one small spark is all that’s necessary to combust this air/fuel mixture and complete the power stroke. So spark is spark right? Well not quite! Most stock ignitions only produce a single weak spark to fire the spark plug. And that may be good enough for a stock engine, but it’s not ideal if you really want to get the most out of your engine's potential.
How To Choose a Drag Race Ignition| 12/03/2018
Drag racers rely on exotic fuels and high cylinder pressures to make huge power. High compression ratios, nitrous oxide and high boost pressures paired with alcohol, methanol or nitro make lighting the air/fuel mixture in the cylinder difficult. The immense pressures inside the combustion chamber will literally blow the spark out. This is where an MSD ignition really shines. Its ability to fire the most powerful and fastest racecars on the planet is legendary. MSD ignition systems can be basic, or advanced enough to control one-tenth of a degree of timing for one-hundredth of a second in any cylinder using individual cylinder timing.
