Default MSD 6A Ignition - is it worth it?

I found a "slightly used" MSD 6A ignition with coil / wiring adapter for $80.

I've tried to do some research online but not finding write ups on our engines as to what true advantage it has. My engine is stock. My CAI should be here in a week and will be adding the Hughes intake within a month or so.

Can anyone offer some input on this add on? Or should I pass for now and put the $80 towards the other goodies?

If you're looking for a performance gain, you wont get a big one with the MSD box. If you were to go with one, I'd recommend the 6AL that has the adjustable rev limiter.

+1, especially the 6AL. i've got one, but not using it currently, since i have to get my truck running first.
