just completed the Team Rush TFI upgrade

Things are running very smoothly. Most of the cold start issues are gone. Still running the stock carter bbd though, which probably has something to do with it. Stupid stepper motor.

Biggest improvement is the smoothness from 0-3000 rpm. Don't ever get above 2500 much even in low gear. occasionally have to hit 3000 on 1st or 2nd gear, and things are so much better. no misses.

I am waiting to fill up the tank today so i can check the fuel efficiency over the coming week. I trust things will improve.

Here's what I put on mine--

Moroso spiral wound wires
cap, rotor and cap adapter were from auto zone. advance auto had none of them surprisingly. don't trust that your parts store will have these things in stock. remember, this ford truck is over 30 years old, and the parts fit it.

used champion copper core plugs, nothing special really. gapped to 0.045.

here's where i messed up though. i could have used the stock coil connector on the jeep, but i had to cut it off. i bought the wrong coil. i bought the msd 8203 instead of the blaster 2F 8205 model. if had paid attention better, i could have slipped the 8205 right in with the stock connector. but i wired it direct without problem.

for about $100 and an hour or so i have a nice new efficient ignition.

Its a good solid set up. I did mine two years ago and my jeep still starts fine in 20 and 30 degree weather. My choke doesn't work either since we only get a few weeks of cold weather and I still have no starting problems

i did mine about 3 years ago and it ran great, then parked it for the last two years and have rarely driven it, but it still starts up and runs pretty good, but the carb definitely needs to be replaced.
