        Great Distributor

        Went in very quickly, great part. Love that it is forged not cast. Polished look is great. The only part that wasn't great is it had a bad/wrong module. 1989 5.0 with an AOD, wouldn't idle after installation and verification of distributor install. Installed the Ford module it idled fine. Sent module back to Performance Distributors and stated this is for a 5.0 with an automatic. I get a new module a couple days later with an "A" on the back and now it idles great. If not for that hassle I would have given it 5 stars. I give it a 1 in performance gain because I don't think you actually "Gain" horsepower you just get back what you should have with accurate timing. Bottom Line: Great product but make sure and specify your transmission type. Would highly recommend and would buy again.

      Its says this will fit my 84, but mine is a 5.0 not a 5.8

      • This will only fit 5.4L V8 models, an '84 5.0L would be excluded.

      will this work with a duraspark module? Or does it require an aftermarket ignition box?

      • Hi, This Performance Distributors Hot Forged Distributor will not work with a duraspark module, you will need to use the Dyna Module that comes with this distributor
