MSD location

I searched and didn't find anything to answer my question. Has anyone mounted an MSD or the like in the smuggler's box (or anywhere else up front)? I think it would be a cleaner install but I'm wondering about the extra distance from the coil. If I use larger gauge wire I won't have to worry about resistance but I'm concerned about the time it takes to travel the distance. When things are happening in microseconds a few extra feet may matter. Any comments?
