This listing is for a MSD Ignition Upgrade Kit for 1996-1998
Chevy/GMC 5.0/5.7L Vortec Engines
This will only fit Vortec Truck Engines with the crab cap shown in the picture!
Included is a Blaster Ignition Coil (8231), 8.5mm Super Conductor Spark Plug Wire Set (32169) and an MSD Cap & Rotor Kit (8017).
8.5mm Superconductor Wires - Part #32169
The MSD 8.5mm Super Conductor Wire is "the" performance wire. Engineered from the inside out, the 8.5 offers everything you have ever wanted in a wire; incredibly low resistance without electronic interference! In a single 12" length of Super Conductor Wire there is only 40 - 50 ohms of resistance! That is the lowest resistance of any helically wound wire. To accomplish this, MSD uses a copper alloy conductor due to it's great voltage carrying capabilities. The low resistance results in less loss in spark energy so more reaches the spark plug. The conductor is wound extremely tight around a special center core. So tight in fact, that there is over 40 feet of conductor wrapped into a single foot of plug wire. This winding procedure, combined with a ferro-magnetic impregnated center core, produces an extremely effective Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI) "choke". This choke, or suppression capability, keeps the EMI inside the wire where it cannot interfere with other electronics on your vehicle. The outer sleeve that surrounds the conductor assembly is just as impressive. A proprietary blend of silicone and synthetic material produce a sleeve that is highly resistant to high heat as well as abrasion and tears. These wires have a 90 degree end at the spark plug. A coil wire is included as well.
Blaster Performance Ignition Coil - Part #8231
MSD designed these Coils by combining our Blaster Coil experience with E-core coil efficiency. Each coil has a unique turns ratio plus there is lower primary resistance than the stock coil. This all amounts to a bolt-in replacement coil that produces more output voltage. The Coils will work with stock ignition systems as well as MSD equipped cars and trucks.
MSD Vortec Cap & Rotor Kit - Part #8017
The cap and rotor of any ignition system must be considered maintenance items. Just as you change the oil and filter of your car, you should always replace the cap and rotor as a set. To make things easy, we now offer these Cap and Rotor Replacement Kits
