Question MSD Ignition?

ANyone ever put one of these in? Does it actually gve you any gains as far as fuel efficency or hp? I was reading about one designed specifically for high revving 4-cylinders (like ours). Anyone have any thoughts/input?

What kind of gains are you seeing? Has the savings offset the cost of the ignition change?

Thumbs down

I wouldn't exactly call an engine with a redline around 6500 "high-revving". Maybe the engine in an S2000, but the EJ25 is far from it.

Anyhow- I've heard that a lighter foot on the throttle will do more than most of those ignition systems.

Cool

Well then forget an ignition system and look into swapping in an engine from an Insight.
