MSD Ignition Removal Help

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to introduce myself. I recently purchased a 2000 SH with only 53 thousand kilometers on it. It is pretty much a time capsule aside from some of the mods done to it from the previous owner who did not drive it much hence the low kms and Fast and Furious type mods left over from the early 2000's.

I have already replaced the altezza/euro tail lights to stock and changed the muffler to a smaller RSX-S muffler.

Next on my list is to remove the MSD Ignition. Why? There is a P1399 code being thrown and I am trying to narrow down the problem. I understand that the CEL could be EGR port related as well but I will work on cleaning the ports over the coming weeks.

I need some help here as I have read up on all the MSD 6300 installation manuals (not prelude specific) and even read this link NTPOG 5th Gen Ignition Installation and various others but there does not seem to be one just for the 6300 unit alone.

So when I follow the wiring from the MSD unit, one of the wires goes to the Ignition Coil. This part I understand as it is mentioned in some of the other sites and also the manual.

Where I get confused is in the image below. When I follow the other wire, it appears to be spliced into some wiring harness below the throttle body. (See where the black part surrounding the wires is cut open and the MSD wire attached). This part does not seem consistent with the MSD manual so I am left scratching my head.

Any idea what this is or where the original wiring was supposed to connect to?

Re: MSD Ignition Removal Help

It might be the wires running to the stock external coil. i'd put my money on that

Re: MSD Ignition Removal Help

Just follow the wires and unplug it all, then hook up the stock parts
