Default Got a question on wiring a msd box up

I have a 95 mustang gt with the 5.0 ho i did the efi to carb swap. I have a digital 6al box and when i try to crank it if i turn the key fast as i can it will crank but if i wait any amount of time or it doesnt crank on first spin of motor it will just turn over and not crank. Then i can wait for say 15 seconds until the msd box cuts off and retry it will crank up or do the same thing till msd box resets. Where do i need to get my power from on my msd box so it will get power with key in starting and run position i guess is what im looking for any help would be great

the heavy red wire goes to positive battery post and the thin red wire goes to key on 12 volt source.
