MSD 6 Digital Dwell setting


Recommended Posts


G4+ Atom 2 Ecu, Big Block Chevy V8 engine with locked Distributor, reluctor Trigger and MSD 6 Digital Ign Box.

Engine runs, no issues, set all Dwell Values 3 ms.

Just want to know what is the correct Dwell setting for the MSD 6 Box?

MSD's arent actually sensitive to dwell since they were originally designed to be triggered from points.  I would however set the whole dwell table to 1ms to ensure nothing weird happens at high RPM when you are running out of cycle time.

Make sure "spark edge" is set to rising.
