Intense,

Thanks, didn't know they had it. When i called them, they didn't have it yet. That was like 2 weeks ago. I suggested they should have something like that. Because, i was wondering where the heck, i should place mine. lol

I will check with msd.

Thanks again.

oh.. i didnt realize you were talking about where on the truck to put it. I thought you were talking about pix of diagrams for wiring and stuff like that.

i had mine behind the battery case and i have seen others put it on where the stock air box is/was

lol,

had a heck of a time looking for a place to mount it. Was kinda hesitant during the install. I posted this so people would have a little bit of confort during installations.

I'm confused as to how you set up so you can "go back to stock in minutes". what parts did you use and how did you set them up. I'm trying to avoid cutting any wires.

The secrete is using the 2 lead trailer wire harness kit from Napa. 3 kits was purchased for the job.

1st. you have to splice the wire that goes to the coil from the stock ignition.

MSD 6a box:
Put a set of male and female 2 lead trailer connectors on the MSD wires and stock ignition side. (1 kit)

Put a set of male and female 2 lead trailer connectors on the wires that run from the MSD to the coil (1 kit)

Put a set of male and female 2 lead trailer connectors on the existing harness that goes into the stock coil. Now snip the wires of the trailer harness, on the exposed side, this is just to seal the connector from wheather. (1 kit) Put an old boot on the stock coil to keep it from the wheather.

Now, all you have to do to change back to stock is, disconnect the stock lead going to the MSD 6A box and plug it into the stock coil, because, you have the trailer connectors on both sides.

It is important to solder the wires and use shrink wrap to seal them.

I put pictures up of what the connectors look like, there is 1 small picture and a picture of my stock coil, towards the top of the picture you can see the connector seperated. It's out of focus, I never said i was a photographer. lol

Go here take a look
