TFI with MSD 6A?

I have recently purchased a TFI set-up, which is similar to HEI. I hear great things about them, and can't wait to put it on. I'm also considering whether it would be advantageous to get a MSD 6A as well. Are there any thoughts out there as to whether spending the additional $150 for the MSD 6A is worthwhile? Would there be a noticable improvement with the MSD versus the TFI alone?

Re: TFI with MSD 6A?

TFI stands for THICK FILM INTEGRATED, and refers to a type of ignition module that Ford uses...

What you bought was a E-core coil and cap and rotor upgrade developed on this BBS by yours truly.

The Upgrade will make your vehicle much more drivable, and it will help with fuel economy and emissions.

The MSD 6 series (Capacitive Discharge Ignition, CDI) module will make a fine addition to any vehicle still using a common induction ignition, and in my opinion is well worth the price MSD is charging.

Re: TFI with MSD 6A?

I am running the MSD 6A with the TeamRush upgrade and a MSD Blaster canister coil. Would it be worth while upgrading to a TFI coil?

Re: TFI with MSD 6A?

just did the TR thingie as well, but was waiting to get the coil, plan on doing the MSD 6 box too, was wondering about the coil... better to go with the Ecore coil or are there better aftermarket ones and if so what are they ???

The MSD module will make ANY compatible coil a fire breathing dragon!

If you are NOT doing the MSD 6 series module, the E-core coil is a sound investment.

If you ARE doing the MSD 6 module, then just about any stock type coil will work...

I prefer the Ford style E-core coil because it's not oil filled, can be mounted at any angle, works well, and has the good spark plug type terminal for the coil wire, and still works great with the MSD modules.
It's also available at EVERY discount auto parts store in the country, unlike any of the aftermarket coils...
