What type MSD amplifier do you guys use?

I was thinking of getting the Digital-6 Plus Ignition Control but I don't know if it will work with the FD ignition. I was reading about it and it didn't say anything about rotary settings. What would be a good amplifier?

i have a digital 6. i havent tested it to see if it really works, but its plugged in and is the same installation as the other 6 series boxes. ill have to pull my plugs out and see how they fire.

i did notice that the light might not be coming on. i cant see it very well as its a little cluttered where its mounted. ill have to check it at night i guess.

Rotary Pro Pak
i suggest you check out the very latest model (just 3 months from intro) that comes from a Jacobs Electronics/Rotary Performance joint effort. it is the "Rotary Pro Pak" and was specifically designed for the rx7. there was a previous model that tended to fry coils but that has been straightened out. you probably don't need a spark amp unless you plan to make in excess of 375 rear wheel hp. another upgrade would be replacing the FD leading coil w the beefier FC coil.
if you are making in the 500 hp area it pays another 5-10% hp to run an amp on the trailing coils... (as per steve kan) BTW, i think the only source for the Rotary Pro Pak is Rotary Performance. it is priced in the mid $300s

Re: What type MSD amplifier do you guys use?

In regards to the MSD units, we have good luck with the Digital 6's units.. the standard 6A seem not to last as long and we actually saw a 6A box fry up in front of of our eyes

a great alternative is the Crane Hi-6


good luck!

Running 1 6A and 1 DIS 2 ?

I was thinking about running a 6A for the leading coil and running the MSD DIS-2 for the trailing coils. What do you guys think?
