It's not that you can't make it work it is that there really is no benifit from it. The 6al box is the actual control box, the coil is just that a regular ign coil.

First gen B16a distributors use the same cap and rotor as a D16a6, the stock engine in the Civic/CRX si from 88-91.

I have a CRX MSD cap on my engine, and a blaster coil... THat's all I've needed so far up to 275 horse power.
