I'd make the dealer buy my car back.

My buddies who have MSD ignitions in their cars that use the RPM pills usually put in a 2,000 or 3,000 RPM pill when leaving it to get a set of tires or something. That's just enough to move it around the lot and into the service bay. If you try to hot rod it, it cuts out on the rev limiter.

They never had one bit of problem after doing so.

I don't have an MSD ignition in my '65. I have a Ignitor II electronic ignition. It fits under the cap and is hidden.


As for the guy with the '10 SS....... First I would see if anything was damaged or burned up....say....like a clutch. If not...I wouldn't do or say too much. Just not go back to that dealership.

Truth be told....I have a Ford dealership and a Chevy dealership within 1 mile of my shop.
The same thing goes on there. You should see the way the saleman drive the new Mustangs and Camaros. Back when they still made the supercharged F-150 Lightnings '03-'04....it was even worse. Black marks everywhere.

If they can smell the clutch, they severely affected the life, and they were even reccomending a replacement.


You can tune a modern car to do the same as an MSD kit, just going in for warranty repairs they may frown if you have been reprograming the PCM.

They were too.g to fraud GM too, so the mechanic would get paid warranty money, and by the owner.

Do like I did a now out of business ford dealer here, tell EVERYONE you know what they did to the car and they made it worst than anythign you did to the car. Everytime I go by that now empty dealership across from 6 flags over Mid America, I smile knowing that they screwed me over on my truck, but that in the end, they screwed themselves.
