Just a little tidbit of power gain.....

Foxwell dyno'd his engine on Monday. The dyno has a MSD 7AL box on it. They dyno'd and tune with the MSD most of the day, then hooked up Scott's Daytona Senors box. The Daytona was worth 7HP over the MSD.

Why is it we never have time or money to do it the right way in the beginning but we always have time and money to do it over again?

Interesting....If I have any problems in the future with the MSD stuff I got, I'd love to tell them where to go. I've heard from so many their tech support are *******s and I found out for myself about a year ago and because of that, I will go elsewhere next time.

Re: Just a little tidbit of power gain.....

I was thinking of buying one of them myself. I was going to use the MSD grid. After doing some reviews and research the Daytona Sensors box seems to have few failures compared to the MSD. I just wasnít quite sure Yet.

What would you attribute the power gain too? I donít think it has a greater spark than the MSD?

I did hear it has a faster processor and requires less amps.

The reviews I read make it seem like you get way more for your money with the Daytona Sensors box also.

I stand for the National ANTHEM!

Re: Just a little tidbit of power gain.....

After several failures with a msd 6A box, a failed msd epoxy coil and a melted msd rotor and distributor cap, I had enough. Been using a Daytona Sensors CD-1 Pro system on my current build and itís been trouble free for almost a 1000 street miles so far.

Re: Just a little tidbit of power gain.....

One must wonder what exactly caused that 7hp. One reason I havent plugged the mSD back into my 99% street car yet. ( It STB last yr and they replaced the caps - it is 17 yrs old though)

>>> One must wonder what exactly caused that 7hp.

maybe it was chrome. or red. or chrome with red racing stripes. Not British Racing Green though, you would lose 8.2 HP with that.

It wouldn't start if it was British green.
