Default MSD blaster coil mounting help.

I put a chevy 355 in my build and I am wondering how I should mount the MSD blaster coil (#8226). I would like to mount it on the firewall. Is there a bracket out there that I can use? Has anybody done this? Pics would be great!!!
Thanks in advance.

That bracket won't work. MSD blaster coil is a GM TBI replacement coil. It's a square coil.

I see. That's a little more challenging. Good luck.

Depends on which coil is being used. MSD makes a few Blaster coils, and 2 of the most common are round, and that's exactly the bracket needed.
I had one on mine for years.
