Several listmembers have run the Jacobs magnum with disappointing
results that have been verified using elctronic accelerometers. I
beleive the latest test showed a decrease in horsepower of about 17. I
own a Jacobs Ultra team setup and have disconnected it until I can get
to the dragstrip and do back to back performance testing. BTW, other
members have also tried the MSD setup with similar results. Apparently,
Chrysler has got the factory ignition system well optimized. Spend your
money on the Mopar performance SBEC or good ehaust work. These will get
you the most performance for the $$$.
