        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!
