Which plug wires are you "not" suppose to use with

MSD ignitions?

I'm trying to decide on which wires to get but I can remember something about reading not to use"______"?

Was it a soild core or spiral core wire or what?

What ignition system are you using? What application?

Some people can break a cannon ball, in a sand box, with their bare hands.

Right now just a 6Al with a timing controler and looking at running a nitrous plate system.

I'm also undecide on which coil to use.

Nevermind!! Silly me I read the whole instruction book but the first page! LOL

It says not to use soild core wires or "cannot be used with msd ignition!"


Ok, since I have found my own answer. How about coil? Which one?

You'll be fine. I've run in the 11's with and without spray with a 6AL and a Blaster 2 coil.

The local ignition shop recommends switching to a 7Al series or higher once you hit the single digit ET's....

I guess it's all a matter of preference.
