    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.

      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.

      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.

      MSD Pro Billet 5.0L distributor

      This distributor is really super quality and very easy to install. It is a little tight around the BBK intake so make sure you have enough travel for timing with regards to the spring clamps for the cap. We are using this with a MSD ignition box and it works great. The sale price from AM was great and I will be ordering from them again. Shipping is very fast usually one day for my orders to the Lehigh Valley. Thank you American Muscle
