it just helps to reduce noise interference for the radio
one end would go to coil -, the other end would go to ground
the engine WILL run WITHOUT

The dealer has misunderstood the unit in question.
It is not a noise suppression capacitor i.e.
This is what Sube mech is describing.
What you need is the ignition amplifier.
Post over on maket place for one
Should be no problem all MPFI 87 and later and SPFI cars have this devise

what do you all think of running a MSD-sci or some other after market ignition. i can get one for $150, but will i be able to run it without the stock amplifer working? we tried cleaning it up to get a good ground, but nothing. so i smelled it and it smells burnt.
if you all could help that would be great. and thatnks for the info on what it was called.

This is not a "rare" item.
Have you no bone yards in your area?
I explained which cars will have this item.
Or you could send a private message to oddcomp.
IF you decide this method of fixing your problem is too difficult
and do want to spend all that cash on an aftermarket ignition system.
The ignition pulse system you have is called a crank angle distributor.
Make sure the system you choose can sense this type of control if
it uses the distributor pick up for it's firing signal.
Hope this helps

but the thing about going after market is that i have never installed one befor. the main thing i am worried about is will it will work with out the ign.amp. to me it seems like it should, but i really dont know.
im sure some of you have a msd 6a or some other fairly cheap ign. installed. if you do you got any input on the situation?

Send me a PM and I'll talk to you about mailing my spare one out. Shoot me your zip code atleast and I can estimate a shipping price.
