I could be wrong, but I believe that your MSD 6 replaces the stock Duraspark igniton module.

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] There is no better setup than an MSD module together with the TeamRush upgrade. The only drawback is that you'll have to stop every fifty miles and drain the excess gas out of the tank because the mileage will be so good it'll put fuel back in the tank.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: tr ignition

You will need MSD P/N 8869 wiring pig tail to go from the distributor to the MSD module.
About $15.
Keeps you from cutting any wires on your new distributor or MSD module....

The Orange and Black wires from the MSD module go stright to the ignition coil.
Pick up the TFI ignition coil connector, NAPA P/N ICC1, about $10, to complete the install.
