Follow along as we showcase some of the products that have revolutionized performance and racing from MSD Ignition:

 The most popular ignition control in the world. Thousands of engines are fired by the capacitive discharge, multiple sparks from the instantly recognized red MSD box.

 2m  MSD was the first to offer a CNC-machined billet aluminum distributor! Unmatched strength, stability and accuracy make the Pro-Billet line the industry standard.
 3m  The 7AL Ignition set the bar in drag racing and is still firing thousands of engines. High output and a line of useful timing and rpm controls gave racers the upper hand.
 4m  Raaaa-ta-ta-te-ta-ta- Raaaaaaaaa! The 2-Step Rev Limiter changed the way a car launches and sounds on the starting line. Racers still ‘put it on the chip’.
 5m  High performance engines need accurate trigger signals and the crankshaft is the best source. MSD engineers recognized this and developed a system that was easy to install and extremely accurate.
 6m  The first spiral core wire with low resistance yet high suppression capabilities gave racers the performance of solid core wires without Electro- Magnetic Interference issues.
 7m  No charging, advanced timing control and the awesome power of the Pro Mag 44 is why every top fuel dragster and funny car are equipped with two.
 8m  The Programmable 7-Series Ignitions opened a new window of tuning possibilities that has helped racers achieve ets and speeds that were impossible 10 years ago.
