Call it great or a great joke....
Okay, so I'm not really impressed with my options on complete, tunable versatile ignition systems for Alfa's. Yes, there are some clever modified units but.....I'm not impressed enough to drop 800.00 for them ( without using the names of those who sell them). So, now for the good news followed with a question. I just sold a MGA (retired race car) with a Ford 2.3 liter. Man, it was OH MY GOD fast! As a part of the sale I wanted the MSD ignition system I had in it. This unit was/is great! All the items are a Ford 2.3 liter MSD distributer, MSD 7AL-2 ignition module with noise suppressor) also a Blaster 2 coil and PN 8980 timing computer.
Here the good stuff. The distributer drive shaft is the same diameter as a Alfas. So the only thing I needed to do is remove all the stuff off of the MSD distributer hub and have it milled a little to fit on the Alfa block. A piece of cake job for a machinist. And I have a race buddy that is one and he did it in 20 minutes. Now for the better stuff. Not only do I now have a better ignition system but the 7AL-2 comes with REV limiter chips ( anywhere from 5000-10500 RPM's) to same that motor on a mis-shift. better yet the optional timing computer is adjustable or you can have it manage the timing on its own. Now for the question. With this kind of set-up what spark plug do I use.
