View Full Version : Ignition components for Nissan Skyline

Hello MSD,

This is our first time enquiring an ignition system. We would like your recommendation of the correct MSD ignition system to work on the following vehicle. The vehicle is more on a street and drag use.

Make : Nissan Skyline GTR
Model: BNR32
Engine : RB26 (fuel injection)
Ignition type: Nissan Direct Fire (Each cylinder per coil)
Engine management : Haltech E6K (aftermarket)
Purpose of Upgrade : Race

1) The engine is an inline-6 cylinder, 24 vavle twin-turbo. It's currently running an aftermarket engine management system - Haltech E6K. The ignition pattern is only in batch firing mode. Which is in cylinder wastespark format. 3 ignition output connected as 1 & 6, 2 & 5, 3 & 4.

2) I've browse thru MSD website and has found the MSD Digital DIS-4 HO, PN-62151* to be the perfect upgrade for our configuration. Since we are running wastespark format then are we limited to only 3 coils for all 6 cylinders? Please correct me. How do we go about this ?.

3) Can any of the 7 series Ignition units be used ?

4) We realise that the Blaster HVC Coil PN-8252 works together with the MSD DIS-4 HO unit. Can the MSD DIS-4 HO utilise the PRO HVC or Blaster II instead of the Blaster coils ?.

5) Please comment and suply with all the nessasary accessories, cables... etc Part Numbers for the complete installation of the system. We would like to use the highest possible MSD ignition unit on the vehicle for street and drag use.

Thank You.

Awaiting your prompt reply,

1. You can use the MSD DIS-4HO, PN 62151 with the Haltech E6K Fuel Management system that you are using. Since the Haltech has only three outputs, you will need to fire the coils as a wastespark setup. Cylinders 1 & 6, 2 & 5 and 3 & 4 will have to be wired in series in order to use individual coils per cylinder.
2 & 4. You can run either the MSD Blaster SS, PN 8207, Pro Power HVC, PN 8251 or the HVC-II, PN 8261 coils in the wastespark format described above.
3. The MSD 7 Series Ignitions only accept one input and have only one output. In order to run them on your application you would have to use 3 units. Of course, the rev limit function would not be calibrated correctly for your application.
5. The DIS -4HO, PN 62151 comes with the installation harness for installing the unit. All programming is done via a series of dip switches located on the back of the unit.

Thanx for prompt reply.

1) I've read through some of the other post and one mentioned that the DIS-4 HO is strictly for drag use by it's High Output feature. Can it be safely street driven ?. Adjustable voltage maybe ?

2) Since each coils has one output. Do we use 3 coils (split them) or 6 coils for each cylinder ?. And if we were using 6 coils, Is the wiring harness supplied with the DIS-4 HO sufficient to the coils ?. If not please lay down PN number for extention cables / sockets.

3) We're installing the DIS-4 HO inside the cabin. Will the wiring harness to the coils be sufficient to the engine bay ?.

3) It's difficult to estimate the length and type of plug boots to be used. I've cut and paste an image here that looks more or like the perfect fit for the RB26. Please lay down the PN number for the plug boot on the " FAR LEFT " together equipped with the 8.5mm cable :---


4) Do we need the Bulk wire / Universal kit as well ?

Thank you.
