    edit: actually, an MSD ignition would normally only give you around 50 ponies, but since you got a rev limiter, too, you should get the equivalent of a 500 shot of NAWWWSSSSS





    edit edit: Seriously thogh, it would all depend on your motor setup. I remember there being a thread a while back that had dyno tests, and that OEM Honda ignitions outperformed most (if not all) of the aftermarket ignitions. MSD ignition on a stock d-series motor, or any stock motor really, is pointless.

    and you will blow ignitors.

    honda ignitions are good for 400+ hp and 9000 rpms. unless you're over that, you're wasting your money.
