I recently changed out my entire ignition system. I was running a standard coil, with Mopar Orange box. I did not notice any difference between this and the standard ignition. For some reason I went through 4 coils in a year. I finaly took it to a mechanic and they said it was mis-wired (hmm go figure.) To make a long story short, I decided to completly replace my ignition system
I bought
MSD 6A (ignition computer) -$160
MSD Blaster SS coil (thoes HD coils) -$35
MSD 8.5 MM plug wires -$65
Champion Truck Plugs -$1.65 each

I gapped the plugs conservitly at .50 I here people have gapped them at .55-.60 with no problem.

The install was pretty straight forward, yet I had to put the computer in roughly the same place as the stock mopar computer as the wires would just bearly reach. The coil I mounted on my fire wall by my dist (agian becasue the wires from the 6A mandated that).

What I noticed is not necesarly a faster truck but quicker throttle response and maybe a tiny bit more pep at all rpm's.

The biggest thing I noticed is my truck idles and drives much quieter. I'm not sure why this is but I actually like this. I'll take some pics and post them here later.

I haven't filled up yet but I'll let you know if I get over my usual 11 mpg.
