Thanks for the reply. Does it rub on the radius arm only when at full lock?

Question Is MSD worth it? is there something better?

I want to hear everyone's thoughts on aftermarket ignition systems for our FI trucks.

Does anyone know if the MSD units are programmable?

Any other MSD experiences please?
