i have a MSD SCI ignition and a SS Blaster Coil sitting in my room. to install this i need a modified MSD distributor cap. My application is a Honda CR-X with a 1989-1991 DOHC VTEC 1.6 Liter B16A motor with a TEC distributor.
i ordered a cap from Summit Racing part # MSD-8292. this is for 93-97 civics, del sols and integras.
i thought this was the right one but i thought wrong. the holes didn't match up and the cap wasn't deep enough.
so i think i need part # MSD-8290. this is for 1989-1991civics and integras. The most important thing to note is that i have a TEC distributor, made between 1989-1991.
The tech guys at Summit are a bunch of hot-rodders and don't know much about this stuff, which is part of the reason i got the wrong stuff in the mail.
so, which msd cap(with part #) do i need. Thanks!!!

Yes, you are correct the cap for your application is the PN 8290 Cap, we also offer this cap in Red which the PN 82901. Keep in mind that when installing the MSD Cap, you will be removing the factory coil.
