      This used to be a great product!

      Ok I will start off by saying my car already had a msd cap on it and this was just a new replacement for a tune up on the car. When I opened the packaging I noticed they had redone the rotor with a sleek red one with msd stamped on it instead of the plain gray one that used to come with the kit. The new rotor is too long and does not have an air gap with the cap. This being said it drags on the cap and starts causing all 8 cylinders to misfire at about 2500 - 3000 rpm. I had to go to the local parts store and buy another new rotor to replace the new one that came with the kit because it does not work. Spent the entire afternoon troubleshooting plugs, wires, coil, and cap trying to figure out what was wrong. Giant waste of money and time.

      Great looking item - contributed to better acceleration

      My '89 Mustang GT convertible is red with less than 70,000 miles, but it was time for a tune up. I installed this MSD distributor cap and rotor with ease. (The installation guide on the site is top notch.) I also installed NGK Iridium spark plugs, Ford Racing 9mm wires, and an MSD coil. (Installing this combination of items took most of the afternoon.) I cannot say that this combination added horsepower, but it definitely improved acceleration throughout the RPM range. Prior to today's updates there was always a hesitation between applying pressure on the gas pedal and the actual acceleration. Now it is sure and positive.

      It's a cap and rotor

      Fits like stock but looks a lot better than the OEM cap. This is a aesthetic modification. My car seemed to idle a little smoother but that's probably due to the fact my original cap and rotor were worn. The top portion of the cap is a nice feature because it keeps your wires in place. If you have an suspension brace, the coil wire is a tight fit due to the wire holder. Not a big deal, but something to note.

      MSD cap and rotor

      Looks and works great! Would highly recommend the easy replacement as it is cheaper than the whole distributor. Would also recommend doing plugs and wires the same time if not already done.

      The cap and rotor blend perfectly with the new Blue wires and make a great contrast with the upgraded look under the hood.

      My foxbody was still running the original cap and rotor and I needed a replacement. The fit and finish of the MSD cap and rotor was perfect. Looks great too! Runs very smooth after the tune-up.

      Great product , replaced this with the stock one and along with the new wringing and spark plugs woke my mustang up , it's also good knowing that it screws down to lock the wires in place and snaps one in at the top

      Nice for the price

      This is a pretty good product for the price. Nice appearance upgrade without dropping 200 for a msd distributor. Can be a little tricky to put the top peice on if you have aftermarket/thicker plug wires.

      Cheaper then Advance.

      I already had the MSD Built Discriminator 6Al initiation, and the SS blaster coil. It was time for a new cap & rotor. It was 3 Dollars less then at the store, and I only had to wait 3 Days from time to order to my front Door. I would recommend this product & ordering anything from A/M Great Service, aand quick free delivery! Thanks A/M

      great quality

      I bought this as a replacement to my old and extremely worn out Motorcraft cap and rotor. Once installed, the engine ran smoother and was a bit snappier although that's probably just due to the fact that it's getting spark again. Everything is a good, quality mold and I couldn't find any defects anywhere. MSD came through as always and produced another durable piece that looks as good as it performs.

      Poor paint quality

      Works good, but the one of the reasons why I bought it was aesthetics, so it looks good. In about an hour after installation I notice the red paint coming off, i was like seriously, not to happy with the quality of the paint.
