Q & A

What's in the Box

Street Fire is a new division of MSD Ignition aimed at delivering high quality and great value.

So don't let the low price of this Street Fire HEI Distributor fool you - it still has rock-solid features like coated centrifugal advance weights, welded weight pins, brass cap terminals, adjustable vacuum advance and the same stout drive gear used on MSD's premier Pro-Billet distributors.

By using all-new heavy duty components throughout, MSD can give the Street Fire a full one-year warranty.

This is a direct replacement for the stock HEI in your small block Chevy engine. All it needs is power from the ignition and has the terminal for tach hook up.

  • Direct performance replacement for GM HEI coil-in-cap distributors
  • 70:1 turns ratio and lower primary resistance produce high voltage output
  • Full power sparks to 9,000 RPM when used with 8364 MSD HEI Module

MSD 8728 Soft Touch Rev Limiter Control for HEI
(Part #5478728)

The Soft Touch Rev Control, PN 8728, is designed to be used on standard points ignition or inductive ignition systems. This means that the PN 8728 can be installed on engines with a GM HEI Ignition, Ford or Chrysler electronic ignition, any standard breaker points systems or even with an MSD 5 or Blaster Ignition (non-CD ignitions). The RPM Limiter is adjusted with plug-in modules and is supplied with 6,000, 7,000 and 8,000 rpm modules. When the engine reaches your set rpm, the Soft Touch circuitry kicks in and drops the spark to certain cylinders. This rpm limiter produces very accurate and smooth, backfire-free rev limits.

  • Can be used on 4, 6 or 8-cylinder engines with inductive ignitions
  • Adjusted with plug-in modules
  • Includes 6,000, 7,000 and 8,000 rpm modules
  • No MSD ignition control box required

    These plastic insulators and brass terminals make your power supply connection and tach connection to the DUI Distributor super easy! They plug directly into the cap and coil assembly and the locking tabs prevent lost connections due to vibration. The Battery and Tachometer Connectors are priced separately so one of each will be needed for the hot wire and tach hookup.
