I have a 2001 Chrysler 5.9 Liter block and I'm trying to find an appropriate ignition system for it. I am thinking of using the 6AL box and appropriate distributor. What I don't know is if the distributor (PN 8534) will fit my 360. Is there a difference between a 360 Magnum and a 360 LA? Need help please! Thanks.

The factory distributor that comes in a Chrysler 2001 5.9L block is equipped with a single pickup with 1 paddle on the trigger wheel for use with the fuel injection system. The MSD Distributor comes with a single pickup and a 8 paddle reluctor and is used for triggering the ignition. What are you planning on using the block for, and are you still going to use the factory fuel injection?

I will be using the vehicle primarily for off-road activities. My plan was to replace the factory distributor with an MSD billet distributor and add an MSD 6AL or MSD 6-Offroad ignition control. I would like to use the factory fuel injection system, but I guess I don't really know what my options are from that standpoint. Are the items I have mentioned compatible with the factory fuel injection? Thanks for the help!

You could install the MSD 6AL or the MSD 6 Off-Road Ignition with the factory fuel injection system, but not the distributor. You will need the cam sync pulse that is generated by the factory distributor in order to supply the system with the correct information.

MDS Tech1,

Thanks for the info! I'll just settle for the ignition and coil.
