    Well last night I installed my MSD 6A in about 2.5 hours.
    The hardest part was mounting the Dang BOX. I ended up takeing off the small grill under the windsheild, and mounted the box up above the heater hoses. I put it all together and took it for a test run and once I got on the gas I could tell it had better throttle response. Once I figure out the proper gap I will let yall know about the Gas mileage later when I can do it on a long trip. GO Easy and many thanks to Phillip at MSD he is a great guy (he even was able to call me at work and help me out.) "Philly87 on CK5"

    I did mine on the firewall around the heater in a 85 with a/c barely squeezed it in and only used 3 of the mounting holes...making a mounting plate sounds smooth as well

    What? You think the hole is too deep? Lemme see...

    Cool :) thanks for the good words. The Box that I got didn't come with mounting hardware (got it from a friend) What hardware did you use to mount. Just some sort of self tapping screw?

    Thanks Again. KEN
