several years ago, i ran a crane unit on one of our race cars, very good, but stopped working. sent the unit back and they sent me a new unit. ran that one for a season or so then that stopped working. at this point we put the crane on the shelf an bought a msd6a. we never had an ounce of trouble with the msd unit and ran that for several seasons before selling the car. as far as i know, that same msd unit is still running (5-6years later) in another car. i have since purchased another msd (6al) which we run in our late model.
i must admit though, that i truly believe that there was a noticable power increase using the crane hi6 over the msd6a, it just didn't seem to last. maybe they've fixed the problem now?

I've had the HI-6 on my 4x4 truck for over 5 years now and 70,000 miles...still working great.
