    I'd go with a new set of wires, a good set of NGK's, and if you are looking into forced induction or nitrous, an MSD blaster cap, and Blaster-series coil. I have a full setup on my D-series, and I love it. Original cap and coil were fried, so I decided to go aftermarket. I wouldn't suggest a coil and cap for a basically stock motor, as it's not needed - however.

    i have a complete msd 6a system on my lsv and i love it...i took it off one day and i did notice a difference...better idle and response...but i had a cr of 11.5:1...so that might be why i felt a diff...now that i have 10:1...i doubt i would "feel" a change

    yeah get it....msd has a nice broad burn curve. you won't notice power increase, but it'll combust better and start easier.
