Features & Details

  • Higher Coil Output for More Power
  • Provides Stronger Longer Spark
  • Designed for Factory and MSD Distributors
  • Fits 1986 to 1993 5.0L V8 Mustangs
High Output; More Power. The MSD TFI Ignition Control Module provides a higher coil output than that of a stock unit for quicker starts, better throttle response, and more low-end power.

Stronger Longer Spark. MSD TFI Control Modules have more electronic dwell than the factory control module, to provide the coil with additional saturation time that results in a longer more intense spark for complete combustion and more power.

Application. This MSD TFI Control Module is designed for use on 1986 to 1993 5.0L V8 Mustangs, including the LX 5.0, GT and SVT Cobra models with either the factory distributor or a MSD Distributor.

Fitment: 1986 1987 1988 1989 1990 1991 1992 1993 Details

Great product

Car set up for a while a and when I tried to start it I was not getting power from the coil. Did a few test and determined it was the tfi. Put it on in 15 min and it fired right up.

Electrical Issues

Product seems to work fine, but I'm still having intermittent electrical problems after it warms up. Will be replacing the distributor next. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Would this perform as well as the motorcraft replacement or is this more "performance"? Looking for reliablity.

    Works great.

    My Mustang seems a little more responsive after installing the TFI. It didn't fix the problem I was chasing but definitely seems to have a little more get up and go.

    Does what it is suppose to do and is noticed

    I noticed a better faster start in my 86 GT. it does the job well and isn't all that expensive, if your car cranks but no start, this fixed my car back to how it is suppose to be. "If it aint broke don't fix it"

    A must have for a modded car!

    This module is just what my supercharged mustang needed. I only wish it cam with the MSD sticker on it. It installed with ease and is the best one I've ever had. It goes perfect with the modifications I already have andI would recommend this product to anyone. Long live MSD!

    Junk

    Not the first MSD product I've had that does not work fresh out of the box. DOA. Put the stock on back on and works perfect. Should have never tried to "upgrade." This is not the first time MSD has let me down, but it will be the last.
