[QUOTE=DonE;5216721]Depending on the model, I would bet your MSD is CDI. When you mention a gap of .040, it must be.QUOTE]

I was referring to not using the stock CID ignition "box". MSD6AL is what I've always used, and I guess I've presumed that it uses something other than a capacitive discharge method of firing. All I know for sure is that it has enough oomph to sustain a spark across a larger gap. The folks at MSD - if I recall - even recommend a larger gap than I'm running (well, for NA cars anyway...they don't specifically address forced induction).
