    You don't need an upgraded ignition unless you're got a highly built n/a or boosted engine.

    i've actually seen where the MSD ignition does damage...

    honda ignition is better for almost every application.

    A buddy of mine installed it in his car, and it caused so much interference with other electrical stuff in the car, he got rid of it and went back to a stock Honda ignition.

    At 250 HP, my car was blowing out the spark. We wanted to keep the plug gap opened up some, so we installed the MSD coil only, no ignition box. Honda ignitions kick serious ass when the igniters aren't going out. :slap:

    the question is, do you NEED it, or will you EVER need it?
