help! msd box to distributor harness

In my friends chevelle, we want to hide the msd 6a box out of site. Our problem is now connecting the 6A box to the msd distributor. Does anyone have a part number for some sort of extension harness? There has to be something for people who mount the 2 items farther than 6" from each other? I searched but turned up nothing. Thanks

Nope. I extended mine using the same gauge wire, solder, shrink sleeving and mounted the box inside on the upper portion of the pass toe board next to the firewall seam. drilled a 1.25" diameter hole, put a grommet in it and ran the harness through it.

Wolf....They also sell replacement 2 pin connector assemblies so you can cut your existing cable to the desired length.
