How to install MSD ignition

Hey all,

I think my Permatune kicked the bucket, so its time to upgrade. I have done some searching on the forum and found a lot of information on how to do this. In particular, I found one really good article for putting MSD in a pre-SC non-turbo (Bosch CDI to MSD - Answers here!), but I haven't found anything definitive for a 930. As I'm going to have to figure this out in order to get it installed in my ride, I figured I'd try to make a "how to" for future use similar to what Fest911 did.

First things first, the opening questions to the experts:

1.) What differences, if any, exist in trying to install an MSD into a 930 vs a 911?
2.) What parts do I need (Assume I'm using an MSD 6AL-2)?
- Should I get a new coil (I have a stocker)?
- Electronics?
- Wiring?
- Materials?
3.) Does anyone have any instructions/advice/tips from experience for doing this?

'86 930: 3.4 Andial build, Web GT2 Evo cams, Carrillo rods, ported/polished heads, MSD 6530, B&B headers/exh + intercooler, K27HF, 1 bar spring, Tial wastegate, Andial FE, Lindsey Fuchs. Back in black!!!
Past:997S cab; '88 930; '86 951; C5 Vette; 4th Gen Z28; 3rd Gen Trans Am GTA; '71 Z28
