Default MSD Ignition - 1969 302 coupe

I need a new Ignition system in my 69 mustang coupe 302, and i was thinking about going with MSD. I want to go with an aftermarket look instead of a stock look, which is why i decided on MSD over Pertronix. I was planning on getting the Coil, Distributor, Spark Plug Wires, and MSD-6AL Ignition Control system. Are these things pretty simple to install?

Thanks!

Yes as long as you follow MSD's easy instructions. I have complete MSD setup in my 68 with a cleveland. In fact, yesterday I happen to be terrorizing San Jose (Willow Glen area) with it.

There is an actual wiring diagram on the back of the 6al box as in the actual box you mount in the car.

awesome!

Thanks guys!

P.S. cmayna - If you are ever in the Saratoga area, drive up highway 9. Its a fun road and a little dangerous. Just follow Saratoga Ave up into the hills off 280.

Vid of highway 9:

Hey Kenny I'm running the hole set up in my 31 but you definitely have to follow the instructions. This set up is expensive but worth it. I'm running just over 500hp with a 671 mega blower. I blew 2 6al boxes by not following the instructions $225 each and my rev limiter as well. Main thing is your positive and ground has to go direct to battery and I didn't do that. If your running a stock motor I would recomend to go factory electronic ignition be cause of the expence. For a stock motor Mallory ign would be good.

while that msd is nice, it's big bucks and won't make a bit of difference performance wise over a $33 parts store electronic duraspark distributor and a $25 control box. The ONLY advantage is the rev limiter...not a big deal if you have an auto. Stand alone rev limiters can be purchased. Nothing against msd...it's top notch stuff, but imo upgrade to the duraspark setup and spend your hard earned cash elsewhere where it'll really make a difference.
