I'm about to give my car a tune up, so just a couple of questions... With my setup would it be worth getting an MSD coil, distibutor cap n' rotor, and wires?
Or should I just go ahead and stay with stock?

For now the stock system is fine. Work on getting a better intake, thottle body, and mass air meter.

Yeah I went ahead and got the stock "stuff". I'm talking to my wife right now to see if we'll have enough money from income taxes for me to get the GT-40 intake. Will the stock ignition parts support my setup with the intake also?

Stock ignition will be fine until you get past 350-375 hp, or if you add boost or nitrous. The stock ignition is actually pretty good. The MSD would help the car run cleaner, smoother, and wouldn't drop the spark at high rpms like the stock system does though.

Since you have the sparking plugs out anyway, try the Bosch 4 ground platinums. I've used them in my vehicles for about ten years. In my experience, every engine idles and runs smoother when those 4 grounds are properly installed. From my Northstar Caddy to my '91 5.0, the improvement makes the $7/ plug price money well spent. It's like Mobil 1, once you start using them, they make a believer out of you.
