Spark issues

I was installing MSD's two step onto my car and I have wired the clutch wire in and that works all right but when I start the car, it is like I have no spark. The starter spins but nothing happens. Anybody have any ideas. I plan to test voltage on each coil but I can see them all just shorting out and going bad

Not sure what exactly is going on, but if the engine was working correctly before the installation, there is obviously a problem with either the MSD box, or the install was done incorrectly. I
I would remove everything associated with the MSD and see if the engine will start.

Did you have the battery disconnected while working on the install? Maybe blew a fuse?

I had the battery disconnected, I've also removed all of the MSD related stuff, Im gonna check fuses, a friend suggested that too. I'll check every fuse and the coils.

go check crankshaft and cam sensors first it's the common reason, then check plus on ECU or ask ur mechanic if u're not familiar with it

Agreed with Stray, its either an issue with the Might Suddenly Die (MSD) product or you messed up the install.
