        You can tell right off the bat that the quality of this cap and rotor set exceeds the stock set. The car runs better than stock on these. I would highly recommend this part.

        Great OEM replacement.

        I bought this cap and rotor kit with a MSD coil to replace the OEM. Right away the idle sounded smoother. I took it for a test drive and the power felt stronger when it pulls for sure. All said and done, my car sounds cleaner and has a little more pep. Definitely worth the money.

      Does having the spacer matter? Some other sites off the MSD cap & rotor with the spacer, I notice this doesnt offer the space, and seeing as I am about to change my cap and rotor I'm just wondering if the spacer matters? 1 answer
