    Capacitive Discharge. The MSD 6AL Ignition features a capacitor which is quickly charged (within one millisecond) to 460 - 480 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 rpm's 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.

    Multiple Sparks. The MSD 6AL produces full power multiple sparks for each firing of a plug. The numberof 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.

    Soft Touch Rev Control. MSD developed the Soft Touch rev control system to prevent over-rev damage to your engine in the event of a missed shift or drive line failure. MSD designed the rpm limit to be adjustable in 100 rpm increments with plug-in modules. When the engine reaches the selected limit, the Soft Touch circuitry begins dropping the spark to various cylinders. On the next cycle, these plugs are fired again to prevent fuel from loading up in the cylinder. The result is a smooth and accurate limiting action without backfires or roughness.

    Application. The MSD 6AL Ignition Module with Rev Control will work on all Mustangs that are equipped with a 12-18 volt electrical system.

    Technical Note. The MSD 6AL module cannot be used with a distributorless ignition systems (DIS) or with Solid Core spark plug wires. This Ignition Module may require the use of a voltage amplifier/adapter (MSD part# 8910) to operate correctly with factory tachometer.
