    Page 14 (& post #5) is in reference to non-ECU controlled timing (your application). You're not reading the Sniper instruction manual.

    If I'm to wire per page 18, how do I get NON-computer controlled timing?
    Page 18 is in reference to ECU controlled timing. Why did you post the diagram from page 18, if your application is non-ECU controlled timing?

    Page 14 doesn't show where to hook the MSD distributor, hence my initial inquiry.

    Then I made this comment in post #7, and your reply to it is where my confusion is. Your reply stated no picture for wiring was needed for non-ECU controlled timing showing a MSD distributor and a 6AL box because it was the same. When I read "the same" I inferred you were referencing the MSD distributor and the 6AL box diagram on page 18. This is why I posted a JPEG of page 18. I'm assuming now that is not what you meant. In the meantime, I was able to get through to Holley Tech Support, and they suggested I wire it as you stated in post #5, then switch to page 18 when I'm ready to run ECU-controlled timing. Just a suggestion, maybe adding a picture of the MSD distributor and 6AL box wire connections for non-ECU controlled timing would help future buyers. So for future readers using a MSD distributor and 6AL box wanting to use non-ECU controlled timing:
    Connect the purple wire of the ignition adapter to the tach output as shown on page 14 and connect the MSD magnetic pickup to the 6AL box.

    Correct, page 18 is in reference to ECU controlled timing, not your application.

    Of course they did, because you wouldn't wire it any other way!

    So for future readers using a MSD distributor and 6AL box wanting to use non-ECU controlled timing:
    Connect the purple wire of the ignition adapter to the tach output as shown on page 14 and connect the MSD magnetic pickup to the 6AL box.
    Yeah...like I stated in post #5!
