CDI replacement

The CDI box on my 85 is dead. I'm assuming it makes more sense to modernize with a MSD from everything I've read instead of spending $400 on a CDI rebuild. Any recommendations on a MSD model?

You can get your cdi rebuild thru Pelican for $310.00.
I had both my 6 pin cdi's rebuilt, as well as a 8 pin a few years back.

What do you need? I have a CDI unit working when removed. Distributor also, if needed.

My distributor is good. CDI is original and finally pooped the bed. Thanks for the offer - I just ordered a MSD 6 AL and blaster coil. I'll get my CDI rebuilt at some point in the event I go back to stock in the future (which is highly unlikely)

I ran with a 6BTM awhile back....no issues with it. It provides ignition retard as boost builds, allowing you to run more pre-boost ignition advance to wake up low and midrange performance, then shave it off as boost builds.
