      Nice Distributor

      Bought this distributor to replace my advance auto junk distributor which would not allow my fox to start, or only allow it to start and then stall out seconds later. That's after testing and replacing pretty much everything on my car to try and get it to run again. This is a very nice unit and my car fired right back up and idled after installing it and setting the timing. Don't waster your money on the cheap auto parts store distributors! You get what you pay for, and you get a lot with this distributor!

      DUI distributor

      I went through three parts store distributors in 12 months. Finally decided to buy the DUI distributor. Nice quality and has been working flawlessly. If you have swapped a distributor before, you know it's a 5 minute job. Easy stuff, fit perfectly. I already use the DUI Live Wires. Next...DUI coil.

      Nice unit!

      Works great, easy install. Just be sure to use the proper TFI module when installing! It's comes with 2 different ones, 1 for auto and 1 for manual trans. It does make a difference!

      Not Bad Bad

      Way better then the arching TFI Module killing MSD Distributor nightmare I dealt with for about a year, the only downside was the DYNA MODULE, after 3 months it literally came unglued and fell apart at the seams exposing the insides to the harsh engine environment. I Had to put the stock one back on and order a replacement module for this distributor today not happy about it at "ALL !!!!!" This time I'm going with ACCEL module, we'll see about that?

      Hot forged dizzy.

      It is a nice piece. Car stopped stumbling in the upper rpm's. Looks good and isn't a wallet emptier.

      Good but not perfect

      I had the change the TFI module in my car do to a crank no start issue when warm. So I figured I do some prevented maitnance. Popped it in and worked great. Only things is the TFI does not point the same way it came out. Almost impossible to get it the way I want it. But works fine.

      Excellent Performance Distributor

      I installed the Hot Forged Distributor to replace a faulty MSD Distributor on my 1991 GT. The Hot Forged Distributor provided better throttle response and consistency throughout the rpm band. The distributor is well constructed and is show quality. If you are looking to upgrade from that ugly stock distributor look no further than the Performance Distributors Hot Forged Distributor.

      Performance Hot Forged vs M#D Billet

      Not much to review. 5.0, Trick Flow Heads, Cam and intake. The engine would shut off at various times, under power at a light etc. After changing computers, chips, pumps wiring and everything else you can think of I changed the distributor. The car runs great and has not shut off again. The name is Randy, Marcia is Mrs. Smith
