    Mine dose
    If you have a tune forget about a msd box
    I installed mine after I did all the mods and the tune took it over
    The onlu reason to get an msd box would be if you were to convert points dist. To electronic
    And if you did not have the main original ignition harness

    Yes the car has a tune. Guess we'll get a 2 step and wire it in.

    Found a BBK 80mm throttle body for sale semi-local. Found out why the timing would jump around on the car. The roll pin that holds the gear on the dist sheared apart.

    Luckily that’s an easy fix.

    Are throttle body spacers worth doing on these cars. The car has a trick flow type r intake and has been swapped over to a fox throttle body set-up.

    I threw one on for the hell of it when I still had the PI H/C/I swapped stock motor in. I don't think it did anything even with a tune.
