    Colder plugs and more timing with MSD coils?

    I put the MSD Blaster coil packs on my goat to help insure that I pass a tail pipe sniffer (224/230 114 cam) and because I do almost all city driving. Now I have been wondering if I can go with a colder plug and bump the timing up a bit more without getting KR. The spark from these coils is scary so I know the plugs will fire well even if they get a bit dirty. Has anyone tried this?

    You can actually do some tuning with the dwell time on your new coils. It all depends on what kind of software you are using also.
    It is a ALL motor combo?
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    Yes, it's all motor. My tuner uses HPTuners. I'm pretty tuning illiterate, so if you can make some suggestions that I can pass along to my tuner, I would be most grateful.
