Just bought super conductor wires, cap/rotor combo, and blaster coil. What else can i replace to improve the stock ignition on my Stang?

return all of that and go with stock.
Now why would you say that???


To answer your question would be get an MSD ignition box(6AL,6BTM,ETC) and an MSD distributer. That would complete everything for an after market ignition system

I have the whole setup and I love it. The 6A Box for me was the biggest improvement I saw...

So far I have noticed better response and fuel economy. Will autolite 764 plugs work on my Stang or are they just for Cobras?

the plugs may work on your car but thats not what is SUPPOSED to go in your E7E heads....remember, cobra's have GT40 heads. Run the plug that was meant to go in your head. Motorcraft or Autolites are all I ran when I had stock plugs. As far as an ignition box, I have a Digital 6 in my car and its AWESOME. Timing retard for nitrous is the HEAT and a built in Two step? No pills? Whats not to love? Yeah, it may be a bit overkill on a stocker but hey, how long are going to leave the car stock?!

its not really worth it unless you have nitrous or boost so you can retard and advance it

No pills required!

Dial adjust for:

-Max Rev
-2-Step Rev Limiter
-Start Timing Retard
-Switched Timing Retard (PERFECT for NITROUS)

I put it BEHIND the seat b/c its right there to adjust. I just open the door and dial in more timing or different RPMs on the limiters. I don't have to unlock, then pop the hood, and work around a hot engine....Oh...and it looks trick.
