MSD 8202 Blaster 2 Ignition Coil

  • Special 100:1 windings, kept cool in an oil filled metal canister, are used to provide maximum build-up of voltage
  • The tower assembly is molded of durable alkyd material due to its high dielectric characteristics while wide spaced brass primary terminals prevent the possibility of spark
  • Can be used with a stock ignition, Blaster Ignition, or MSD 5, 6 or 7 Ignition Control
  • For use with stock or MSD¬†electronic¬†ignitions
  • Most late model vehicles with electronic ignitions do not require a ballast resistor, check your ignition and manufacturers specifications to determine if a ballast is required in your application
  • Mallory Unilite applications also require the ballast resistor
  • Improved output coil for stock points or electronic ignitions, Blaster Ignition, or MSD 5, 6, and 7 Series (ballast resistor required for points)
  • 100:1 turns ratio and lower primary resistance produce high voltage output
  • MSD Red metal canister is filled with a premium grade oil for cooling
  • CARB E.O. Approved

 

MSD 8213 Coil Bracket

  • The MSD Coil Bracket offers easy, univer¬≠sal mounting for standard size ignition coils up to 2-1/4" in diameter
  • The Bracket uses a bolt and nut combination instead of the easily stripped self-tapping screw common on other brand brackets
  • Perfect for canister type coils
  • Adjustable from 1-3/4" to 2-3/8" with slight bending of mounting tabs

 

MSD 31189 Super Conductor Plug Wires, Multi-Angle Plug, HEI Cap

  • The MSD 8.5mm Super Conductor Wire is "the" performance wire
  • Engineered from the inside out, the 8.5 offers everything you have everwanted in a wire; incredibly low resistance without electronic interference!
  • In a single 12 inch length of Super Conductor Wire there is only 40 - 50 ohms of resistance!
    • That is the lowest resistance of any helically wound wire
    • To accomplish this, we use a copper alloy conductor due to its great voltage carrying capabilities
    • The low resistance results in less loss in spark energy so more reaches the spark plug
    • The conductor is wound extremely tight around a special center core
    • So tight in fact, that there is over 40 feet of conductor wrapped into a single foot of plug wire
    • This winding procedure, combined with a ferro-magnetic impregnated center core, produces an extremely effective Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI) "choke"
    • This choke, or suppression capability, keeps the EMI inside the wire where it cannot interfere with other electronics on your vehicle
  • The outer sleeve that surrounds the conductor assembly is just as impressive
    • A proprietary blend of silicone and synthetic material produce a sleeve that is highly resistant to high heat as well as abrasion and tears
  • Vise mount wire crimping tool included

 

 

MSD 8579 Ford 302 Small Diameter Pro-Billet Distributor (more details)

MSD engineers fit all of their high performance distributor experience into a special compact housing designed to be less obtrusive for Ford engines. The diameter of the special cap and housing are 5/8 smaller than stock Ford distributors providing extra room in front of the engine. The new MSD cap features spark plug style terminals and is firmly screwed down to the housing. The distributor relies on MSDs race proven magnetic pick-up and precision reluctor to deliver accurate trigger signals to the MSD Ignition throughout high rpm. The reluctor assembly is turned by a hardened steel shaft which rides in a sealed ball bearing for high rpm stability and endurance. Mounted to the top of this shaft is a fully adjustable mechanical advance assembly. The rate at which the chro-moly assembly advances the timing is easily controlled by changing the supplied advance springs and stop bushing for total advance.
