MSD Performance: Direct Ignition System (DIS) Kits

Available for big block Chevy, small block Ford, and Cleveland Fords, the new Direct Ignition System (DIS) kits from MSD Performance make it easy to upgrade from a conventional distributor-type ignition to modern and efficient coil-per-plug technology. MSD DIS kits eliminate distributor-cap and rotor wear, reduce spark-energy losses from long wires, and optimize tuning parameters.

Users can program these kits through a mini-USB port to provide individual cylinder timing, while fully programmable 2D and 3D timing maps offer complete timing control; MSD’s easy-to-use proprietary software makes real-time configuration and tune-ups simple.

Finally, the smartly labeled wiring harness takes the guesswork out of conversion for a hassle-free installation.
