I run a blown alcohol BB ford in Nostalgia. I have a MSD 12 should I upgrade while it's offseason> or sell it and buy a 44?

How much does it cost to upgrade?

I have a new MSD pro mag 12 but have not run the motor yet.

the motor is a 585 cid big block ford wedge head with a 14:71 Hi helix front discharge littlefield blower on it. Trick flow A heads CNC ported. Static CR = 11.5 to 1
Car weighs 2650 lbs
We plan to start with 15-20 lbs of boost but would like to eventually run 25-30 lbs.

first , i would convert it to a 20 amp ( 400.00 charge) and then contact either dunn serives ( 417-967-0528) or rcd engineering for a drive for the mag .

are you currently running the fuel pump off the timing cover or belt driven ?

fuel pump runs off the back of the dry sump pump.
I already have a 10" dunn offset drive.

I was just wondering was the mag big enough for my application, havent run it yet.

400 covers the cost to upgrade if sent back to MSD?

yes, the 400.00 will cover the 20 amp conversion .
