Good evening gentlemen
Perry please excuse me, I know I've been very awkward and I've asked a lot those couple of days, but that's me. Please bare me some more questions. I don't do anything because it should be done like that, I like to learn and see why it should be this or that. Sorry mate.
First I proved today that your theory of using the MSD white wire is correct. I was installing a 6AL-2 unit on a BMW M5 engine, which has a Motronic EFI and ignition system. The instructions recommended exclusively to use the two shielded green and violet MSD wires, connecting them to the crank trigger. I did that, but the car had terrible ignition retard. From 400bhp, it dropped literally to 160bhp and lost all its torque. Then I remembered your words, and used the white wire on the coil trigger, and the engine flew again! It did 408bhp.
Second, with never rejecting your wiring theory, I'm a bit confused about my car's setup. Please can you clarify me the whole matter? I know it takes some time, but please help me. I did a fast drawing diagram, can you please fill it as if you were installing an MSD 6AL on my car?
Many thanks Perry
