I'm on the same boat as you. I asked this earlier but nobody answered except one guy who claims to have 4A on his 2.2. There is 6A but never heard of 4A. I want a MSD also...

Seeing as I don't know what mods you guys have on your cars I can't say that you guys don't have good reason to put them on but here is something to think about:

Unless your stock ignition system is having trouble lighting your air/fuel mixture you really do not need an aftermarket ignition system. Unless you just need it to have a red anodised box under your hood.

If you aren't running high boost I would say you definitely don't need it.

I think the TEC-II that Shiv is working on will come with a ignition system so if your going to eventually swap in a TEC system you won't have to worry about the ignition. I'm mostly looking at the TEC since I want to go turbo later on down the line and not replace the MAF (or was it MAS).

There is a big misconception that ignition amplifiers "create" hp. In reality they just offer a more complete burn(which can translate into hp if you have a bad or poorly designed ignition system to begin with) and prevent power loss due to incomplete burns.

I live by TAD motorsports and they said that most modern cars that are only mildly modified don't need them and are a waste of money.

I've had two different MSD units myself on my previous cars. MSD6 and MSD-SCI and can tell that it didn't create any hp but it did improve the low end throttle response and gave me a few MPG.

I would spend the $400-$500+ on other better mods. However, this might be a good item if it raised my mpg to 30mpg but I highly doubt it.

thanks for the info if its not worth the money then screw it. I just thought that I could add some more fuel (afc) and this would help buring it. I guess not? I figured with the afc and intake/exhaust it would help a bit.
About the tec II, I thought that was just going to be a piggy back thing for the ecu? how much is that going to cost for a na car? From what I have seen bfore its like 2 grand...thats alot o cash! neway, thanks for the info

Kieth - you already have coilpacks! The 'spot' where your wires plug into on top of the intake mainfold is the coil packs themselves. The TEC2 uses an identical system. BTW, the TEC2 replaces your ecu completely, along with the coilpacks, and replaces it with a "box" that does both fuel and ignition. Stop by te shop one day (email me first so i c meet you), and i'd be happy to show the TEC as its setup in one of my cars. For modern cars, th above post is correct....save your money, as you wil not find any hp there!
