Does MSD make a stock replacement distributor ie. one that works without a special coil and box? I am currently running a very mild small block with the original points and coil. I want MSD technology for idle, starting, and overall smoothness (not necessaary RPM) but also keep the stock look. I am really sceptical of all MSD competitors. If there is such an offering, do I have to run a separate 12 volt wire?

I am using the MSD "Ready to Run". It requries nothing special other than a full 12v. It also has the small distributor so there aren't any firewall clearance issues. It runs good and I have been happy with mine.

CFunk has pretty much summed it up for me as well. Easy, simple and it works great.

I agree, the MSD ready to run is a great unit.

I have a question along this line, if you replace points and condenser with electronic module will stock coil work or do you need higher voltage coil. T Jones

When I converted from points to the Pertronix module, I went ahead and installed their coil also. Has worked just fine for the last year.I would say go ahead and use the higher voltage coil.
