Question MSD Ignition. What will I need to make this happen?

I have a 2000 RS. And I'm trying to figure out what I will need to order to have the ignition system replaced with MSD. I know that I have the distributorless ignition, but there is a few different systems that they carry. Anyone with any experience w/ignition on they're Impreza please help me out. THANKS!!!!!!!!!

There is another I-Club member that is using the MSD-DIS2 in his Legacy. And he said that yes, it does help.

But, I don't know of anyone using an MSD other than Tony Rigoli of TRP and they are pushing max HP and probably need it.

That would be me with the legacy. All you need is to find a place to mount it.. Splice in the MSD wire harness into the trigger that wires to the coil pack. Easy to install. If you can change your own oil it should take you 15 minutes. As for is it worth it. Yes on the mileage alone.

Hey Slide,
Do you have any pics of your install? What unit did you use and are there any extra parts needed that don't come with it? Also, were in the wiring did you splice in....color, etc.
Thanks,
Doug

I have the MSD DIS-2 too!!! Makes a noticable difference...better acceleration, smoother, and better gas mileage...I also chaged the plugs to NGK, so that helped too I guess!!!

Pics ... you want pics .. okay you asked for it!!! Sit back and relax and enjoy the show!
