      This part only fits certain v8 cars/trucks. Don't listen to the stock photo idea- notice the part number never changes if you change your vehicle.

      Comments about MSD Ignition Dist. Cap and Rotor, GM V8 Points:

      I searched with a 2002 Hyundai Elantra GLS V6 for a Distributor Cap, and this part showed up. This car has a coil rail (no distributor), much less a V6 vs V8.

      Someone needs to update this product compatibility.

        Best Uses

          Comments about MSD Ignition Dist. Cap and Rotor, GM V8 Points:

          The Nissan Altima has a four cylinder engine. The picture shown as well as the description GM V8 indicates that this cap is for an eight cylinder engine, probably a GM.
          This web site is a disgrace.
