MSD Ignition

MSD Blaster II Series high performance ignition coil in chrome, supplied with ballast resistor. MSD's famous red canister coils, but chrome plated! If your application uses a points distributor, the ballast must be used. Late-model electronic ignitions or an MSD Ignition do not require the ballast.

If you are looking to upgrade your stock coil, or want to compliment the performance of your MSD Blaster ignition 5, 6, or 7, the Blaster coil line is the right choice. Our Blaster coils are designed for improved spark output, with special 100:1 windings, used to provide maximum build-up of voltage!

These windings are held secure and kept cool in an oil-filled metal canister. The Blaster coil is designed to mount in most factory canister coil mounts, MSD does also offer a chrome coil bracket, PN 8213 and it is recommended to mount the PN 8202, 82023 and 8223 coils in an upright position.
