The Three Stage Retard Control allows you to retard your ignition timing in three different stages. You can activate one retard for a nitrous stage and another at top end in high gear for more mph and still have another module left over for dual stage nitrous systems. When activated together, the retard amounts are cumulative so you get the total of the three. For example, if you pull 2°, then 4° on the second stage and another 2° at top end, the total retard is 8° (2+4+2=8). In addition to the individual retard stages, the Three Stage Retard Control has an optional start retard function that retards the timing 10° or 25° while cranking the engine. The Three Stage Retard Control connects easily to your MSD Ignition and can be triggered from points, electronic ignitions, crank triggers or magnetic pick-up distributors. It is supplied with a 2°, 3° and 4° module and must be used with an MSD 6, SCI, 7, 8 or 10 Series Ignition.
Features:
  • Three separate retards
  • Twenty-five degrees start retard

MSD was the first company to develop and offer the multiple sparking, capacitive discharge ignition for engines. The line of MSD 6-Series Ignitions are the most popular aftermarket ignitions in the world due to our race-proven performance on the track and our reliability on the street!

Early on, MSD focused squarely on ignition systems with revolutionary products like the multiple sparking CD ignition, timing and rev controls, billet aluminum distributors and the Pro-Mag, an incredible breakthrough in power  and endurance.
