[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).
Mark H. 1987 930, GP White, Wevo shifter, Borla exhaust, stock everything else. The result of a massive Pelicanite good will fire recovery effort. Truely an open book, ready for the slippery slopes to modification.
