MSD Ignition Timing Controllers


6BTM

The 6 BTM is ideal for engines with a turbo or supercharger. Not only will the engine benefit from MSD s full power CD sparks, but there is also an adjustable boost/timing retard circuit to prevent detonation. When your supercharger (turbo or blower) forces the air/fuel ratio into the engine, the cylinder pressure inside the combustion chamber increases. The result is a great amount of power but this can also lead to detonation which can result in severe engine damage. The 6 BTM lets you dial away detonation by retarding the timing in relation to the boost pressure. By electronically controlling the ignition timing your engine can run on the threshold of detonation to obtain maximum power and efficiency. The BTM features a dash mounted control knob that lets you adjust the amount of timing retard. It can be adjusted from 0 per pound of boost to 3 per pound. The boost pressure is monitored by a sensor built into the MSD. The 6 BTM also shares the Soft Touch Rev Control of the 6AL Ignition for overrev protection. The BTM is supplied with rubber shock mounts and rpm modules for 3,000, 6,000, 7,000 and 8,000 rpm.



6LS

To some, putting a carburetor on a GM Gen III V-8 is a step back in progress, but to many enthusiasts that do not want to run high pressure fuel lines and miles of wiring, this is a giant step in the right direction! GM Performance Parts and Edelbrock now offer cast aluminum intake manifolds that allow the installation of a carburetor on these advanced small blocks. But, without the EFI s ECU, they needed a controller to fire the ignition and MSD stepped up to the plate. This compact ignition controller is fit with matching factory connectors for a direct installation. Only a handful of connections are required; the coils, crank sensor, MAP sensor and the cam sensor. This Controller also allows you to map a timing advance curve with MSD s easy-to-use Pro-Data+ software. Other features that you can set include a two step rev limiter, a vacuum advance curve for cruising economy and even a step retard in case you want to add a little nitrous to the mix.



6LS-2

Features:
*Runs a carbureted LS2 engine without complicated EFI hardware
*Map a timing curve using Pro-Data+ software
*Programmable two-step rev limiter, vacuum advance curve and step retard
*Direct plug-in to factory components
*Programmable via a PC through MSD s Pro-Data+ software.

While it may seem blasphemous to some, putting a carburetor on a GM Gen-III V-8 is a great option for those wanting the advantages of the aluminum small block without the headaches of wiring a modern EFI system. The 6LS-2 Controller allows you to map a timing advance curve with MSD s easy-to-use Pro-Data+ software. Other programmable features include a two-step rev limiter, a vacuum advance curve for cruising economy and even a step retard in case you want to add a little nitrous to the mix.

The 6LS-2 is designed specifically for the LS2 and its 58-tooth wheel, which can be easily recognized by its gray harness connector. This compact ignition controller is fit with matching factory connectors for a direct installation. Only a handful of connections are required; the coils, crank sensor, MAP sensor and the cam sensor. You ll have your carb ed LS2 running in no time!



Boost

Universal Boost Timing Master:
The Universal Boost Timing Master allows you to adjust the ignition timing in relation to the boost pressure plus it has a built-in inductive ignition. You can adjust the dash mounted control knob to retard the timing 1 - 3 per pound of boost, up to 15 . The increased spark output of the BTM helps burn the fuel mixture more efficiently resulting in more power - a definite advantage when boost pressure is increasing. The Universal BTM is designed to work with most single coil factory or aftermarket ignition amplifiers and points type distributors.

Boost Timing Master for MSD Ignitions:
The Boost Timing Master allows you to adjust the amount of ignition retard from 1 per pound of boost to 3 per pound via a control knob that you mount on the dashboard. This way you can make adjustments on the fly to prevent detonation as fuel quality or altitude and air quality changes up to a maximum of 20 retard. There is a boost pressure port to connect to your manifold and the BTM wires easily to the MSD Ignition Control.

NOTE: This unit must be used with an MSD 6, SCI, 7, 8 or 10 Series Ignition. BTM w/Vacuum Advance:
This unit has all of the features of the Boost Timing Master, plus it allows you to adjust up to 20 of advance under vacuum conditions (idle or cruising speeds). This advance helps smooth out the idle, increase mileage and improve off-the-line performance.

NOTE: Must be used with an MSD 6, SCI, 7, 8 or 10 Series Ignition.




Multi-Function

Connects to your standard MSD Ignition.
Absolute control over your ignition timing.
Plot a timing curve down to 0.1 every 100 rpm.
Control each cylinder's ignition timing.
Different rpm shift points for each gear shift.
Set an amount of retard to ramp back in during the launch.
Three stages of retard for multiple nitrous systems.

MSD engineers incorporated the favorite controls of the race proven Programmable Digital-7 Ignition Control into an accessory for racers already using an MSD Ignition Control (MSD 6, 7, or 10 series). It is the only ignition accessory you'll ever need. The Multi-Function Ignition Controllers are loaded with easy to program adjustments. The Controller lets you adjust the timing of every cylinder, map a complete timing curve, pull timing out during the launch, set rev limits (when used with an MSD Soft Touch Rev Control), shift points, start retard and much, much more. Don't let all of these functions worry you. MSD developed two very easy ways to program the Controllers. For PC users, MSD offers the Pro-Data+ software or for the non-computer racers, there is a hand-held Programmer Monitor. The Multi-Function Ignition Controllers can be triggered with a points/ECU trigger, magnetic pickup in a distributor or the non-magnetic pickup of a crank trigger. There is even a mag pickup compensation adjustment for absolute trigger accuracy! It must be used with an MSD Ignition Control and can be used on 4, 6 or 8-cylinder engines. Each is supplied with Pro-Data+ software disk, PC harness, vibration mounts, wiring and thorough instructions.



Timing Twister

Features:
*Adjust the timing with a simple twist!
*Advance the ignition timing up to 9
*Select a step retard up to 18 for nitrous use
*Twist in a boost retard from .1 to 1.9 per pound of boost
*Available for GM LS1 and LS2 platforms, Chrysler Hemi and late model Fords

Imagine the fun you ll have tuning your late-model ride with MSD s new Timing Twister! This sophisticated, user friendly control plugs into the stock wiring harness and gives you the ability to adjust the engine s timing with the twist of a dial.

The Timing Twister has four rotary dials that give you the ability to advance the timing curve, set up a step retard or even select a retard rate based on boost pressure. Control over the timing can help improve economy, improve performance and help tune the engine for other modifications.

The Timing Twister does not modify ignition timing at idle, but becomes active above 1,800 rpm. Once above that rpm, the entire timing curve can be advanced up to 9 in 1 increments. There is another setting for a wire-activated step retard, primarily designed for use with nitrous oxide. Another great feature is for the forced induction crowd. When used with the optional MAP sensor, you can easily dial in a retard that is based on boost pressure. Twist in .1 - 1.9 of timing per pound of boost to retard the timing up to 30
