:lurk:

I'm in the process of getting an MSD 6BTM. This device has a **** to retard the timing 3 degrees per pound of boost with a little **** that goes on the dash. Only thing is I'm not sure how I'd know in the first place how much my timing needs to be retarded. Does the 6AL hook up to the Knock sensor or something?

my msd 6a just hooks to the coil on the cap and rotor? i am going to get a BTM as well:D

but i would think you can get the MSD timing retard and call MSD for further question but i think you can pull up to 15degree's out or retard:D

BTW: I did some shopping around for my BTM and it's good I did.

Summit, Jegs, etc... sell the thing for ~$479

I did a search on the internet and found it sof r ~$335

THat's an incredible savings!
