    Question 8680 timing control in a 2001 Dodge Ram?

    01 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2l gas.
    I recently installed an MSD 6al along with an MSD coil.
    This might be a stupid question...
    Will an 8680 timing control work in this application? Timing is non- adjustable from factory (rotating distributor adjusts fuel sync only) Would using the timing control change the actual timing, or the fuel sync (firing of the fuel injectors)?

    Yes it will work but let me ask what are you going to retard the timing for?

    So they way it works is the stock wire going to the coil will go to the 8680. So the stock ecu will send how much timing to take out to the box then the box will take more or add( how ever you have it set up) timing then send out that signal

    sorry for looong delayed response...I need a vacation!
    I am thinking the timing control might help with drivability. 2001 Dodge Ram 4wd, freshly rebuilt 5.2 V8, long tube headers, slightly larger cam. MSD 6al & MSD coil. Seat of the pants, feels like the ignition is retarded. Not much power and just feels real lazy.
    This might be a bandaid approach? I adjusted fuel sync but hasn't resulted in any gains.
