    absolutely nothing since it triggers the magnet or buy the expensive billet reluctor, mine did the same exact thing, changed my reluctor and mag pick up and put on a new style vented MSD cap problem solved for me at least :)

    you can also use a very small drill bit and drill into the cap on the sides between the towers so it can vent
