why do you want an ignition...your money would be better spent on headers or an ADC chip or something along those lines.

Exactly- The Ford DIS ignition on our cars is more than sufficient for even a 3L turbo like mine... You'll be making nowhere near the power at nowhere near the RPM level to max out the stock ignition.

Plus, the stock ignition fires each plug twice, in pairs, according to combustion/exhaust stroke for better emissions ratings. Will your aftermarket kit supplement that? Support it? Even fit?

Spend money elsewhere. Headers. Chip. Turbo?

definately buy the msds. the adc chip should be the last thing you buy since it is custon burned for all of your mods, if you dont do it last. youll have to send it back several time to get reburns to make the car run to its optimum level

You can try the Weapon-cRap headers, which are a direct knock-off of MSDS's design, use inferior brittle asian stainless steel, don't fit most cars, and require welding on others... :rolleyes:

Do it once, do it right! MSDS.

Personally I would not ever put on an undampened crank pulley. People have run them, people have had no apparent problems, but I would never do it. I don't like the idea of harmonics just crashing around inside the metal of the crank- Forged or not. Ford designed the damper for a reason. Then they designed the DMD... Coincidence?

I would pick accessory underdrive pulleys if you really want to waste money on a negligible gain of power... Try a performance mod instead- More bang for the buck. Unless you're trying to bling up your engine compartment...

I dont think a high flow cat would help alot, unless you pair that up with MSDS headers and a catback exaust.

Increasing the flow for one part wont help as much as fixing the whole thing... chain is as strong as its weakest link kinda thing.
