I have an MSD ignition box and I was planning on buying an MSD coil pretty soon. I went around to a couple of shops and a couple of them said they wouldn't install it on my car because it was a Nissan, and that I would just have problems with it. Is this true? What other pieces will I need to correctly install this if I have the coil and ignition box? Thanks.

I installed a MSD 6A and Blaster SS coil on my 97' altima, It took just a couple of custom mounts. It runs great!! Only one problem, Check engine light! My solution, Cut the wire for the idiot light and installa toggle switch on it. Problem solved. Car runs like a clock. Even with 200540 miles on it! Hope this helps

I have run a Blaster SS coil for over a year now. I haven't had any problems and someday I will upgrade to an MSD ignition module too. You need to buy the tach adapter too.

You CEL came on because you don't have the tach adapter

Very true! I had the same problem with an MSD 6A and SS blaster coils, CEL keeps coming on and my technician was resetting my ECU to clear it :angry2: (about 6 times). Finally called MSD and they recommended the tach adapter and never had a problem since :D .
