Description
Capacitive Discharge. The MSD 6A Digital Ignition features a capacitor which is quickly charged (within one millisecond) to 520-535 volts and stores it until the ignition is triggered. With the Capacitive Discharge design, the voltage sent to the coil is always at full power even at high rpms unlike conventional stock inductive ignitions which requires the coil to store and step up the voltage in between each firing which can result in a loss of power or top end miss.

More Efficient. Inside the Digital 6A you’ll find a high speed RISC micro-controller that constantly monitors and controls every firing. The circuitry has been updated with highly efficient components that help the ignition produce more power while drawing less current. The new Digital 6A delivers well over 530 volts to the coil with up to 135mJ of spark energy for every firing. Increased output combined with MSD’s proven multiple spark series is a winning combination.

Multiple Sparks. The MSD 6A produces full power multiple sparks for each firing of a plug. The number of multiple sparks decrease as your rpm's increase, however the spark series always lasts for 20° of crankshaft rotation. For rpm's above 3,000 there is simply not enough "time" to fire the spark plug multiple times, so there is only one powerful spark.

Application. The MSD 6A Digital Ignition Module will work on all Mustangs that are equipped with a 12-15 volt electrical system, including 4, 6 or 8-cylinder engines.

  • What you want to do is buy the MSD Box To Factory Ignition Harness (86-95 5.0L) item # 14235, it makes hooking up these boxes so easy anybody that can read can hook it up. I have the MSD 6AL on my 95 Cobra and used the item number 14235 and was done in about 30 min's or less and it works great.

Will this work with a stock distributor? Would it be ok to use this with a stock distributor? I have a foxbody with an MSD ignition coil, stock distributor, and Ford Racing 9mm spark plug wires if it makes any difference.

    Great Product

    I installed the MSD 6A on my 94 Mustang Cobra using the MSD-8874 wiring Harness and it made it a snap to hook up. It took longer to relocate the battery in the truck than to mount and hook up the MSD 6A box.

    Awesome product!

    My brother in law and I bolted and wired this to my 94 GT in less than an hour. It not only improved overall performance and reaction time, but completed the under the hood look... I have red plug wires, msd coil, msd cap and rotor as well, so just looks complete now! Great buy!

    great product! must buy!!!

    first off let me start off by saying I have a 93 mustang GT all original...and this MSD box has made my car run like butter! it runs soooooo smooth its crazy. I have A LOT less fumes, and it gives me a bit more HP. what else could someone ask for?? and the price was great..went to a few other websites and they wanted twice the price, if not more. it was so easy to install I had my 9 year old helping me!! I do 95 percent of my shopping for all my projects from americanmuscle.com its the #1 website I recommend to all my friends and family!!
