MSD location

I searched and didn't find anything to answer my question. Has anyone mounted an MSD or the like in the smuggler's box (or anywhere else up front)? I think it would be a cleaner install but I'm wondering about the extra distance from the coil. If I use larger gauge wire I won't have to worry about resistance but I'm concerned about the time it takes to travel the distance. When things are happening in microseconds a few extra feet may matter. Any comments?

My MSD is under the drivers seat. Henry Schmidt from Supertec mounted it
there and it is clean and out of site. MSD6AL triggering two Blaster II coils. Works great with my twin plug turbo

The shorter the wires the better. Some have placed it in the location of the stock CDI. I installed mine on the engine firewall at the right rear.

I thought about under the seat. I don't want to mount it in place of the CDI because of the modifications necessary to make it fit. I want it clean and out of the way.
