    I know most of you guys like MSD better than all the others. So I think thats what I'm going to go with. My question is, what all did yall upgrade. Did you just get the MSD-6A box and thats it? Or did you get a hi-po coil? Wires? What about upgrading the ignition module? I know it says '73 K5, but I upgraded to HEI, by the way. Thanks
    One more thing...is the MSD "Offroad" box worth the extra money over the regular 6A one?

    I am running the MSD8360 dist with a BlasterII coil and a 6A box. I emailed MSD to ask what the diff is in the OffRoad box and the 6A. The 6A has a light coating of epoxy (or whatever they call it) were as the OffRoad version is completly submerged in the stuff and can run under water. The 6A can run under water too but only for a few minuts then it may fail.
    OH ya and the offRoad comes with ruber mounts like the 6T.

    All I know is that I love my MSD stuff, my rig fires up with a sigle turn of the key, I just turn it and let go and my rig fires up!

    OH and the service at MSD is awsome I bought a new VDO tach ad it wasn't working right so Summit replaced the tach, stil not working so emailed MSD and they sent me an inline filter for FREE and that solved my problem!!

    MSD ROCKS!!
    They have an upgrade for HEI too if you want to stay with that technology!!
