        Can this be used without the MSD ignition box? In other words, is it 'ready to run'?

        • Well Doug it could be but it would be like having a bowl of cereal without your milk.

            Junk

            I never understood why MSD always got a bad rap Until I bought a brand new product from them, this distributor was bad out of the box. Swap it out with a Known good distributor and had a bad misfire above 4000 RPMs, swapped the stock distributor back into the car and ran fine.

            Works well

            Works well on my ol tbird put in this distributor at the track set my timing back to where it was with the streetfire junk and picked up .2 sec could be a coincidence but the car is pretty consistent. Lost a .1 sec off of 60 foot, throttle response is definitely noticeable, car is speed density and I've done a few things to it mostly stock as they say.

            Put this on my 88. Fought with it for 3 weeks trying to figure out why my car would misfire at wot. Finally put the stock distributor back in and no more problems. Never again will I buy an msd product.

            MSD Pro Billet Distributor

            Was having some issues getting my newly rebuilt motor to run right. Had been planning on upgrading to an MSD distributor anyhow, but with the issues I was having I figured it would be worth going ahead and getting it. Put it in and my Stang roared to life like a nasty snarling beast. No complaints at all.

            Easy to install

            This product was what I needed. You can always count on American Muscle to look for something nice. I recommend changing the spark plugs and getting new spark plug wires you will notice more of a difference. I would suggest to get the msd performance coil too. Didn't take long to install. Wish I would of done this a lot sooner.

            Love this distributor

            I purchased this to put on my '89 GT convertible that I recently threw a bunch of "bolt ons" at. This went in like butter, and immediately improved the idle and throttle response. It was well packaged, simple instructions, looks great and was a fantastic value. By the time I added the MSD wires, coil and box the car was a mini rocket. Super fast shipping to. I highly recommend!

            Good product

            After the old distributor died, stranding me 45 minutes from home, running down the problem, I ordered the MSD dist. I could have gotten a rebuilt unit locally or even ordered a MSD locally, but with American Muscle's excellent selection of parts and great customer service, there was no question when it came time to order. Received the new distributor quickly and with some expert help, we had it installed with the car running in less than an hour! This distributor is a must have item for your 302 5.0! Excellent performance & quick & easy install/setup. It is certainly an upgrade from the factory unit. Noticed a difference right away in some areas. Looks quite nice sitting at the front of your engine as well.

            put this in with the new engine and not only does it look better than the stock cast aluminum Distributor, it also give much more accurate timing curves, all with much better durability!
