Got the 2.25" exhaust, Aluminum radiator, JBA shorty's Pertronix Ignitor III (to replace the II) and energy suspension bushings. More photos on my build page @ http://redshost.com/gt350/index.html  Still need the car to put all this stuff on to.

I was also told that I may get my car (the body) back from the metal fabrication shop by the end of this month. WOOT!

Thanks Red! Nice looking Falcon gasser!

Hey guys, I have not posted much in a while. I am just did the Dyno tuning on the Charger yesterday.It made 841 HP and 830 Torque to the wheels.I am still working on the hood when I get it done I will post pics

 And you need to check your coil before removing the resistance, as the Pertronix or MSD both like 12v. to them, but not all coils have enough built in impedance to remove the resistor. If your coil doesn't have enough internal resistance, it will melt down if given a full 12v. input.

 I'm referring to spark output to the plugs, which isn't controlled or set by the distributor, but can be affected by coil output. The MSD 6A and 6AL both put out a very high voltage spark, which is magnified from whatever the coil puts out. The MSD box puts out between 520dcv-540dcv primary, and about 135-145 millijoules of spark output.

  That 2nd number and the multiple spark feature are the real keys to making an engine perform; especially in a engine set up for hi performance where often idle rpm create a rich situation, or suffer from a spark that's too cold at wide open throttle.

Comment by Red Barchetta on December 3, 2014 at 11:28am
as far as the voltage output, it's still all depends on your coil and how the points/control box, controls that coil. The 6a box sent 12 volts directly to the coil whereas your stock ignition usually has a resistor that limits the voltage. With the Pertronix, you have the option to remove the resistive wire thereby increasing the voltage to the full 12 volts just like the 6a box does, otherwise, it will have less output than the 6a.
