I had and LT 4 that had the MSD 6AL, along with the MSD coil and MSD 8.5 wires, worked fine with no problems. Biggest pain was trying to find a place to mount the box

I'm going with the MSD Digital-6 plus. And it IS hard to find a place to mount it.

I have mine mounted right next to the vortex air box, on the radiator shroud, seems to be cooler up there

Super:
That is a damn good idea. When I was looking to mount the MSD6AL I had the cut lid and K&N setup. Gave up and sold the MSD. Now I have the Vortex and that does free up some space. I'll check it out this weekend. Thanks.:_rock

I mounted my MSD 6a (I saw no need for the 6al, since I have a rev limiter already) all the way up front/right, in front of the right front tire, in that little well near the turn signals. Its very inconspicuous down there, and close to the coil.

MSD Coil

Did you guys mount the MSD coil in the same bracket as the old coil on the R/H Cyl. Head? What does that heat sink & control unit do that the coil mounts to? It appears on mine that I would need to drill out rivets to remove the old coil if I were going to use that bracket again.

MSD is releasing a direct replacement coil PN#8231 this summer. I'm going to run the stock unit until it comes out. The harness number for a '96 is 8877.

Supernatural 400- could you post a picture of your setup?

As far as I know in looking through their catalog they have had the two wire coil out for some time. in fact I was going to buy it last year, but never got around to it

Yeah, the two plug coil has been out for a while. I even bought one thinking the '95 and "96 must be the same. Wrong! The '96 has a single plug coil and the MSD version won't be out until this summer. I talked it over with one of the MSD Techs and am installing the ignition and harness now and I'll just have to replace the coil when available. It will plug in to the harness just like the stock coil.
