MSD Performance (6471): 6 Offroad Ignition

With its reliable, rugged, fully potted design, the 6 Offroad ignition from MSD Performance provides performance at low and high RPM for a variety of off-the-pavement activities, including rock crawling, desert racing, or other harsh-terrain play.

Below 3,000 RPM, the 6 Offroad delivers a crisp, clean throttle response and complete fuel burn, while over 3,000 RPM its powerful capacitive discharge spark keeps the fire lit until you let off the skinny pedal. The 6471 includes an easy-on-your-engine rev limiter that protects against damage from drivetrain failure or slick spots; an easy-to-read LED display; and rotary dials to adjust rev-limit, cylinder select, and timing start retard.
