    A few pages ago, I mentioned that I have no shame. I honestly didn't think so until about 10 minutes ago. My buddy Scott that does the powder coating for me was asking if I had the MSD box hooked up right. I swore to him it was and he argued the opposite. I went as far as going out to the car, opening the glovebox, taking a picture, and saying, "No. No no. Ohhhhh sh*t."


    The white wire. The really important white wire. It leads to nowhere.


    I had to come in and shift the blame on myself and not on MSD in this case. It's not right to blame someone else when I in fact am my own worst enemy, yet again.


    So again, I want to apologize for this whole debacle. It appears that I have yet to give attention to important details.

    BUT! I'd be lying if I said I didn't learn a whole lot about how ignition systems work now.


    I'm going to quit posting now, because it seems the more I dig, the worse I look. Good night!

    I think I figured out how I made my mistake. The MSD box came with a "harness". But it was not THE harness. See exhibit A:



    This is a fox TFI harness that MSD sells. It's plug and play. It's also not what I have. I assumed this was what I had and plugged in the plugs, not realizing I had to manually splice in the white wire on it's own.

    Yes. I want to keep it in there for a hotter spark. Going to go a heat range colder on the plugs with a slightly larger gap too.

    I want to kill this clutch in the most agonizing way possible, hahaha. Going to try and set up another dyno session on the 16th.

    It was fun while it lasted. Looks like it ate a rod bearing.
