Default Re: Project Karma

Scout started puking some wires today. The wiring looked daunting in the beginning but since reading a bunch and looking at all that is involved it doesn't seem that it will end up being as difficult as originally thought. Also was able to get the cd ignition box, coil, and starter solenoid mounted to the firewall today. It's a mallory hy-fire 6 cd box, mallory e-coil, and regular old Ford starter solenoid. I am going to order a 6th cylinder live wire to use as my coil wire. It is about 28 inches long. I am following Maybens ignition upgrades because they seem to be the best choice for ultimate ignition reliability and performance.

Never start wiring without a beer and a koozie.

Here are some pics of the mallory cd box, coil, and starter solenoid.
