What kind of computers and timing controlers would i need if i turboed my scort? I have heard if you get the MSD 6AL that is all you would need as far as that goes. I am really confused about this part of the whold turboing process so any info would be a great help.

Well i have been looking at MSD stuff like the MSD 6AL and the MSD 6BTM and i was wondering which one would be better, MSD 6AL with rev control or the MSD 6BTM with the knob that allows the driver to retard the timing from 0 to 3 degrees per pund of boost. I dont know exactly what i need for my turbo project so i am really looking for some help, thanks.

For a turbo car you would need the MSD 6AL BTM or just the BTM. The advantage of the ingition is that it has the soft touch rev control and the BTM built in. But the plaim BTM can retard up to 20 degrees and the 6AL BTM can only retard 15 degrees max.

Do you know if an ignition control like the MSD works with distributorless ignitions? Or does anyone make one? I was lloking for that info at the MSD site but didn´t find it. Perhaps I was just looking in the wrong place.

Ocorzo:
So if i got the BTM that would be all that i would need as far as that stuff goes or would you say i should probably just get the MSD 6BTM.

Escort_KXT:
I sent for the MSD mini ignition catalog and in there are the MSD DIS ignitions and they are designed for cars with distributorless ignitions. the part numbers are, 6215 for the MSD DIS-4 (for use on 6 or 8-cylinder engines wiht three or four coil packs.) 6211 for the MSD DIS-2 (For 4-cylinder engines with two coil packs.) There are a couple more in the catalog so just have them send you the free one and it will tell you how much stuff costs and where dealers are located in your area. I saw this also it was a distributorless tach driver for if you dont have a tach and you have a vehicle with no distributor and multiple coil packs the part number is 8913. Hope this helps.
