has anyone used this set up before or heard anything positive/negitive about this...im looking for something other than OEM to support my 4.3L stoker, and dont want to overlook anything...if you know of something better than this please let me know...and will a reburn on a chip be required?

thanks,
TYLER

I know for a fact that Dave Neilbert, has recently ran a 10.68 in the 1/4 with an OEM ignition box.......unless you plan on running even faster times, the factory piece should be just fine.

I also agree,, ford has one of the best ignitions around! use the stock stuff otherwise its all a waste of $$$

Good set of wires and plugs is all you need

My buddy has that item on his powerdyne 5L foxbody. It's great if you're running boost or nitrous on a stock computer and want to avoid going to a tuner, etc. It can program like 2 rev limits, advance/retard timing VIA GM MAP sensor, RPM switch. It's a pretty cool piece, but you could do the same with an EEC tuner.

It seems like when it comes to ignition parts, a lot of people replace their OEM stuff with aftermarket parts and come back saying "Man, there's so much of an improvement over stock!" Well, "stock" had 200k miles on it and was 20 years old. ANYTHING would be an improvement over a worn out ignition system.

As was said, the stock stuff pumps plenty of current. If you were turning 9 grand on that motor, then maybe it would be different.
