can anyone tell where i can find some info on how a MSD ignition setup works?

I hear some people talking about how great a performance gain they get with them, but i have no idea how they work. :)

The MSD ignition isn't so much a power adder like a camshaft or intak but more to help you get the most out of these parts, don't get me wrong you will see a gain when bolted to a stock motor but nothing major maybe like 3 or 4 hp, but when used with some other power adders you might see gains more around 10 to 30 depending on what you've got?? Just a little FYI not to sound like a$$ but thats what i think??

Here's the deal. All engines miss a little and it goes undetected to the human ear going down the freeway where it happens by far the most. Even at that, an engine in good tune well miss about 1 or maybe 2% depending on what engine. One in POOR tune will miss maybe 3 to 4% of the time. This is normal. The MSD Gives multiple sparks that helps lower the missing but only up to a certain RPM. I'm not recalling the RPM where it reverts back to a single spark each firing but it in fact does. The power you gain is not noticeable unless you need a tuneup badly and then it is a very small amount. It well or should make your engine idle smother and run smother in lower RPM's. Now if you have HEAVY MOD's done to your motor, the MSD will be well worth the investment. If you do install one, also install a better coil and 8.5MM plug wires at the least.

PRO STREET ENERGY KIT
Race on Sunday, drive to work on Monday. If you use your high performance vehicle as your daily driver, this is the ignition for you! The Pro Street has features ideal for the street driven high performance vehicle that will not only improve power, but significantly increase mileage and throttle response. The Pro Street uses a high speed digital processor to control multi-sparking and capacitive discharge output. An adjustable rev limiter set by rotary dials is included. An optional full throttle switch can be connected that significantly boosts the Pro Street's output when you need it most! You'll feel the difference the first time you start your vehicle with a Pro Street - easier starting, smoother idle, and significantly better throttle response. Like all of Jacobs Electronics systems, installation is made easy with "OE" style connectors or Jacobs Electronics patented Secondary Trigger. No wires to cut - EVER!

Iv'e got a 4 banger with jet chip stg2, airaiad cold air and low temp stat going in tmrw. Would this be a good investment??

With all due respect, I have to disagree with using Jacobs ignition system for 2 reasons and other parts for at the least one reason. I have had 2 PRO STREET systems. Both went to H-LL in less then a year. Don't forget, I'm talking over 400 bucks each at that time. So #1, there stuff doesn't hold up at all . 2 for 2 says this very well. #2 reason to avoid them is no tech support and no contacts possible with customer service to collect on so called lifetime guarentee. They talk a good game till you have a problem. They listen and say they need to get back to you and it will be no later then the next day. This is so they can put you on a don't answer list and you never get to talk to them again. I went through this process for months. Phone, computer and ground mail.
Spend your money at Jacob's if you want but be sure you can afford to give away 400+ bucks.
