    Default How do you have your MSD boxes mounted?

    Needing to install my box on my tx-19, wanting ideas on where and how they are mounted.

    Thanks, Charlie

    I like to mount them on the bulkhead in front of the driver, less chance to get wet

    no reason to mount it on the engine and subject it to all the heat and vibration

    On our Promod, we mounted it to the rear of the pass head. We used a plate with the rubber msd box mounts. We ran it for 4 years without an issue.

    Hasn't been an issue yet, but Outlaw is probably right. I've only had it mounted like this for a couple years. It's gotten wet (not soaked but damp).

    I have had my same box mounted to my rear motor plate for just about 7-8 years now on two different boats (Do I dare say this??), and have not had one single issue! (Shreaking as though the roof is caving in on me! lol), the box had to undergo a lil facelift here recently, and now is the shiniest part of the boat! FML!

    I'm sure they will survive mounted to the engine for years, most are mounted that way.

    My point was/is don't limit your install because you think it needs to be close to the engine.
