Hope you will like the new MSD unit. Couple things that might give you a heads up on.

You'll need to get a MAP sensor if you don't have one. I have PN# for MAPs and connectors if you need them.

Having a MSD 6A now will make the install a piece of cake. You might consider
leaving the distributor as is until you get things hooked up and functioning. Just set the defaults for the timing map and the retard map to "0" and it should run just like a stock 6AL. Then if you get your MAP sensor installed you can play with setting a boost map. I only suggest this because having a working boost map will help in determining your timing curve. Timing curves on turbos will make you head explode because there are 100 different opinions on what is needed. Hopefully you have good tried and true track dog timing experience to draw from.

This is cool you get to be the Chris Columbus of 6AL-2 on a Porsche Turbo
