I am looking into rebuilding my old distributor with an external MSD coil. This will be for a 92-95 D16Z6 and I have no previous experience working on a distributor.

These are the parts I intend to get
- MSD Blaster Coil 2 (PN 8203)
- MSD Coil Bracket (PN 8213)
- MSD Red Power distributor Cap(The translucent red piece) (PN 82921)
- MSD Power rotor or should I just stick to a new OEM piece (PN 8092)

Looking at the parts manual there is another cap seal and O-Ring to replace. My questions are
- Will I need to get new OEM(Are there aftermarket performance ones?) replacement for both the igniter unit & Internal ignition coil or just the igniter unit.
- Do I still need to have the internal ignition coil physically in there or I can do without it since I will be using the external one from MSD.
- I also see that the MSD Blaster coil 2 has a variant that comes with a ballast. I assume I would need the ballast since I am not running a MSD ignition unit?

and lastly, are my parts number correct?

any reason you want to spend all that money on an msd setup when the stock ignition can handle a good amount of hp?

Basically EGs are old and I am just rebuilding the car part by part for NA power. Many of my parts are new, so I guess, it is now time for the distributor.

For the benefit of everyone, here are the answers I found.

- A ballast will not be required for the D16Z6 distributor.

- When installing the MSD external coil, the stock internal coil can be discarded

- Good write-up on installation.

- Parts number are correct.


Now I can order the parts. Will do a write-up on the installation when I receive the parts.

A used replacement distributor may not necessarily be in the best of condition and a new one wouldn't come cheap as well.

I guess it also gives me an opportunity to open another part of my engine for me to fiddle with. Its becoming an obsession.
