              Once again what can be said, it does it's intended job. it's just as easy or difficult to install as the expensive models and does the same job. It's not a high performance part and is meant for daily use engines and it serves it's purpose and operates fine. Good value, good part.

              I replaced the stock distributor cap with this unit while doing a tuneup. After installation the truck was misfiring and running very rough. I put the old stock cap back on and it ran just fine. Not sure if I would want to try another
