So I am in the process of installing a wet nitrous kit on my 1987 5.0. I purchased an MSD digital 6 plus because it has a timing retard for nitrous. The wiring diagrams that came with the box didn't specify how to wire it for the timing retard. All it says is when 12v is applied to the pink wire, the retard function is activated. How do I wire the box to the distibutor? Any help will be appreciated. MSD technical support was no help.

Wire that pink wire in with the positive side of your solenoids and when they activate it will retard timing to whatever its set to

That's what I planned to do. I just figured it had to be wired to the distributor as well but I guess it just retards the spark through the coil? Suppose I was over thinking

I ran the pink wire to the hot side of the arming switch which is easier if the box is mounted inside the car. I remember checking the amount of timing pulled with a light and it was DEAD accurate. That was back when the Digital 6 first came out. Anyway good luck.

That's not the way to do it. Then your engine has retarded timing on the two step. There's nothing complicated about running it to the pos side of the relat for the solenoids. Easy peasy.
Make sure your msd 6 is mounted inside the car, found out the hard way on my dd.

How Loud is it?
I started to put mine in the car but didn't want the noise.

Didn't know it was there. They aren't sealed very well and I went through a couple before I put it inside and didn't have another issue.
