One important thing that happens when you reverse the polarity of the wires going from an electronic distributor to the MSD is that it dramatically affects rotor phasing in relation to the distributor cap. It shifts the trigger point between the leading and trailing edge of the reluctor.

It's enough that my car won't run well at all with the wires one way because the rotor is too far away from the terminal and runs perfect with the rotor dead center on the terminal the other way.
