Self Powered Timing Light

Anybody have a good recommendation.
My battery is in the trunk so a standard light is a real pain. It has to be compatible with my MSD 6AL box. MSD makes one but its too pricey.

Thanks

Re: Self Powered Timing Light

I usually hook mine to the horn relay, the big red wire on the alternator works too. You really don't want a self powered light, they is dimmmmm!
