      My set up is a mk1 cabby with a 2.016v swap running weber dcoe 45's. For ignition I went a different route than the MSD 6-al with the timing computer and got the Programmable 6-al2 system. I was wondering if anyone else has gone this route and if so, how do they like it?

      This system was build to use a hall effect sensor and you actually plug a laptop into the MSD and download ignition maps build from the msd software. I figured it would be a better option, just not sure if anyone else has gone down this road with success

      Well, I made a timing map for it tonight. Hoping by this weekend I can get the motor back in and see if it works.
      I will post a vid on the outcome.
