Has anyone weighed the two tone rings and can tell me the difference between the two. I have given up on the XIM and iff MSD is going to take years to come out with a unit for the 58 tooth ring I may just breakdown and put a 32 tooth ring on it. I just want to know if I will have to rebalance or not.

I believe they are neutral. But I'm unsure of your combo. IIRC 5.7 are 3 bolts and 6.1 and 6.4 are 4 bolr.
Someone mentioned that there was a thinner version but once again neutral.

PS Fab a mount and bolt the thing on the front balancer. See if you can get it working before you pull it apart?

I know I can get the MSD to work I have 2 of them on 6.1 based engines now running great. The issue with the XIM is I cannot control the timing. No matter where you set the dials it has 32 degrees of timing. I fooled with it for 6 hours today I could get the idle timing as low as 16 degrees but as soon as it got off idle it went straight to 32 degrees no matter where I set the max timing dial. I tried 2 boxes and both did the same. I think it is the way the XIM interprets the crank signal, however Fast subbed out the software development and none of the engineers there knows the strategy or they don't care but I can't get an answer.

Another thing to be careful with when changing rings on a rebuilt engine. I have a ring that came off a stroker crank and when balancing the assembly the builder ground on the inner curves on the ring instead of drilling the crank.
