Post HEI Vs. MSD 6al
i was just wondering and this may be a dumb question but which one would be better and more reliable for my car. Im thinking BOTH are just fine but the 6al maybe gives you a little bit more spark :shrug: :shrug:

HEI is easy to do, and reliable. And cheap, got my module for $12.

The MSD is a great ignition controller, but not worth the money for your application.

Post Re: HEI Vs. MSD 6al
once upon a time, there was a know it all bratty boy called, "disty"

Disty thought he could do everything. he thought he could spin round and round, tell others where they needed to be while he was spinning, and also be a little pyromaniac at the same time.

Granted he could spin just as well as the rest of them, he was no good at lighting things up. He carried around a little lighter that was almost out of fuel, and he could barely even get it to spark.

Eventually Disty met a friend who could finally put up with him, called Hei. It was a weird name so everyone called him, "Blaster" instead. He was a good pyromaniac, but a bad spinner.

In fact, he was soo good, he had his own flamethrower.

So when they would play together, Disty would spin and spin and spin, while Blaster torched the s--t out of everything at precisely the right time.

The End.

I think we may be missing some important characters in the story. Heres my version:

Once upon a time there were triplets, Disty, Coil, and Ignito Mazda. They all played a game with their daddy Comp. Daddy would Say “Now!” and Ignito would hand Coil a lit match. Coil while being spun around by Disty would try and light stuff on fire. But Ignito sometimes forgot to light the match, or it would blow out as he was trying to hand it to his brother coil. Other times Ignito would just take a nap and refuse to play.

Daddy Comp took this game very seriously one day he decided his children just weren’t cutting it. He kicked Coil and Ignito off the team. He replaced Ignito with with a kid named HEI Module whose daddy was named GM. HEI Module had very nice wind and waterproof matches and he was always full of Caffeine so he never napped. Daddy Comp didn’t really like daddy GM so putting his kid to work on his team made daddy Comp smile. Next daddy Comp replaced Coil with a kid named MSD Blaster he was a much better pyro than Coil. When HEI Module handed him a match he used it to light his flamethrower and he really lit stuff up good with that.

Now the Mazda family finally had a winning team even though the kids on the team were mostly from other families, and the two Mazda boys Ignito and Coil were kicked out and orphaned.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
