    I don't remember the model number, but it's the Summit brand 55k volt one (about $50). You can do the MSD box with the stock coil if you want. Just have to flip the coil to the side and bolt it back into the ignition module, sort of hanging in the air off of the right side (towards fire wall). My coil was the factory orginal and questionable maintenance history so I just went ahead and replaced it. I have no idea how that thing managed to last this long, but they must of used some pretty decent quality parts at the factory. Lol BTW with the coil on the firewall the coil to distributor wire is too short. Checked the old plug wires and none of them are long enough. Ended up using a single universal speak plug wire from Advance Auto ($15 in stock in most stores). I would have liked a black one for a more subdued/factory look, but the red was all they had at the time.

     

    well you've convinced me enough that the parts for mine should be here on wednesday lol.  i'm wanting the rev limiter feature more than anything because i feel like i'm 1 over-rev away from blowing the motor.

    No problem, glad it helps. Once I got the wiring figured out the rest of the process was pretty easy. It only takes a little less than 2 hours to relocate the ignition module, mount the MSD box and coil, make a new coil wire and wire everything up/put it in looms and zip tie. The hardest part was soldering new leads to the ignition module coil contacts. I would have liked to completely by pass the ignition module, but I couldn't figure out a way to do it. The ECU uses the ignition module to control the timing advance functions and I don't think there's a way to get around that. Good luck and I hope the ignition upgrade works as well for you as it has for me.

     

    what coil did you use?

    Does the paint finish in this image look like a respray to y'all? 

    Did pioneers actually come with full on dummy clusters? I thought they were pretty well optioned.
