Thanks Red! Nice looking Falcon gasser!
This is for Vall. A car show on 1/10/15 at Silver Springs State Park Florida
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.
I can get their Flame Thrower coil, paint it up stock Ford colors (Black with a yellow/mustard top), and remove the resistance wire to get the full 12v to the system.
Remember I'm trying to keep things looking as stock/original as possible, as least to the casual observer. These Shelby American guys can tell with a glance if you dont have the right radiator cap, but its not them I am worried about. Not going to put it in a concourse show. But I do want to show it, after its had a few 11 to 12 second passes down the track. The motor in its stock version already did a mid 13 pass.
The Pertronix is better than points, but it wont come near to the voltage output your 6a does! You can hide it under the dash, and get an extender plug to run wiring to the engine bay.
