I was wondering if I could use a msd 6a to control my ignition and not the cars ecu? I found my old stand alone injector controller so that can take care of the fuel. I'm just curious. thanks..

umm, do you understand what a msd box does? its nothing more then an amplifier, well not exactly, but more or less.

I'm using an MSD 6A on the 85, however there are no factory electronics so everything is independent really with the carburetor set up. I had to buy an MSD universal crank trigger kit and mount the wheel to the face of the crank pully with 3 drilled and tapped holes. I was really hoping there could be a way for the 6A or the timing control computer to use the signal from the distributor but I had no luck, it's still possible though.

do you plan on using the msd timing control computer? or what are you going to do for advance> older vacuum style distributor would be cool

Well I managed to screw this post up. What I am hoping to do is to drop in a stock 7m n/a motor and use the computer that is already on the car to control the ignition. All of the sensors will still be hooked up. What I am hoping is that I can unplug the injectors and use a separate stand alone to control them. Is the ignition curve of the 5m computer different than the 7m? I have read that the 7m will run on a 5m ecu, but the fuel is touch and go. Can this work?

i think you have it waaay backwards. there's someone running a 6M on 7M-GE electronics (darrow?). if you're going to run a standalone, why not let it control both ignition and fuel?

better yet, just run the 7M electronics with the 7M
