Question MSD Boost Timing Master. A Good Thing To Use With A Twin Turbo?

I was wondering if it would be a smart choice to use a MSD Boost Timing Master With a Twin Turbo Stang.
I havent started the mods yet (Only 15), but this is my future setup.
2.5"flowmaster cat-back, bassani 2.5" off rd X-pipe, 3.55 gears, south side lift bars & upper control arms, csi electric waterpump, Flex-a-lite electric fan, svo 65mm t-body & egr,Crane hi-6 ignition & PS-91 coil, mass air conversion, & last but not least a Incon Twin Turbo Kit.
I dont know if it really needs the boost timing master, So thats why i'm asking you.

thanks

since you'll be running boost I would get a MSD6-BTM or the Crane HI-6TRC. There the thing as you want but there a boost retard and a ignition box in one.

I use a MSD6BTM on my vortech motor and it does a great job of keeping the fires lit and detonaton in check. I think it is a good fit on any forced induction car. Talk to Incon and see what they recommend as well.

Exclamation

First of all, ditch the Flowmaster idea with the turbos. Chambered mufflers and turbos don't agree, use a set of Dynomax super turbo or Ultra-Flow mufflers instead. You're looking at a solid 15 hp difference between them.

Second, ditch the elctric water pump and flex-a-lite fan. Save your money and run the factory pulley/pump setup (no underdrives) and an SN95 electric fan if you must switch. Running the SN95 fan will likely require a 130amp alternator though.

RE the BTM, your money would probably be better spent having someone who is familiar with turbo tuning burn you a custom chip instead of using the BTM. The response characteristics of the Incon kits require a bit of a unique timing curve that the BTM can't really do. The upside to the chip is that you will also end up having your fuel tables put exactly where they need to be, resulting in more power, and less chance of detonation.

Southside lift bars can also be hell on the torque boxes. If you must use them, plan on reinforcing the frame near the torque boxes before they decide to crack.

Bowtie Eatr :

I see you're in maple ridge,
There is a shop in langley, "chief chassis" that does great work on mustangs, he can fabricate and weld up a superstrong set of torque boxes for you (the place on your car where the control arms are attached,
Other good shops are pro gas engineering, and spirit racing.

if you know someone who can weld good, you can always buy a set of battle boxes from www.wolferacecraft.com
