That's good then, I won't even worry about it. What does concern me is everything under the hood is very hot to the touch. That MSD module is very hot ... as is the coil. I hope they are designed to run in brutal conditions. I am thinking most MSD applications ( such as on muscle cars ) have lots of open air around them and they wouldn't see the heat soak like they do in that tight sealed up compartment on the 930. I guess time will tell.
