Alas, the Marelli Plex coil and heat-sink is mounted where you put your MSD. I could move the 'Plex and put the MSD there, however. In passing, I've thought about removing the splash cover and mounting the MSD on the back side of the inner fender (assuming it's not double walled) and then routing the wires the fender. In case of failure it's a no brainer to disconnect the MSD and hook up the GM trigger on the 'Plex. Mounting it in the passenger compartment on the firewall was my first thought although I'm told MSD's are noisy. Moving the battery to the trunk in order to get some room is also a possibility although I'm leaning toward keeping the MSD on the "cool" side of the engine.
How far away from a heat source is it safe to mount an MSD unit?
