    will this unit work with a MSD 6425 box and a Blaster 2 coil, what gear should be used with a comp cam hyd roller cam, can I get it with a black cap or will a black MSD cap work

    Asked by: Anonymous
    Yes, this will work with the MSD 6425 and blaster coil, it will depend on the cam, if it is a billet roller then you will need a different gear, if it is a cast gear then this has the right distributor gear.
