    I have a 1991 Blazer with a 5.7l. I want to upgrade the plugs, wires, coil, cap and rotor. I also have a fairly big stereo in it. I heard that high performance parts may cause ticking and buzzing through your syereo. Can anybody give me some advice and part #'s so I can puchase the right stuff!!!

    I run MSD wires, cap, rotor, box, coil, etc. I don't notice anything in my stereo. I don't have a big system though. I run an Alpine 4x40 CD deck, and Kenwood factory replacement speakers. I DO notice in the CB though. The antenna picks up the RF from the wires and box and transmits it threw the CB. It is not the power source, it is actually coming threw the antenna.

    audible tach in the cb can be annoying but if you tune up the squelch it goes away, you lose range though.

    I'm running a Sony 50x4 MD deck going to 4 speakers (JBL GTO series) with an amp putting out about 200 watts for my 6x9's (not a huge system, but its got power flowing through it). I'm running an MSD HEI distributor, with Taylor Spiro-pro wires and champion RC-12Y (i think) plugs. Haven't had a problem yet. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    From my understanding, the only times you do get problems are when you go for the non-suppressed type of lead. (generally the old copper core type.) Anything besides these and you are smiling. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
